Ms. Waheeda Rehman Waheedaji started her speech with a question? Are you all happy? If you help someone whom you don't know then the happiness doubles, she continued. A news report on Rang De made her curious to know more about the project (She thought Rang De was something related to Rang De Basanti). Actually they are realted, both are talking about bringing change.

Mr.Soumitra Ghosh of CSO explained how they are proud to support a change agent named Rang De. He touched upon Mahathma's ideology of Grama Swaraj and inclusive growth.

Rs. 5000 is the minimum loan amount Rang De arranges but Ram shared an experience where the weaving community in a village in Orissa asked for loans as low as Rs.1000 and Rs.2000.

Rang De has started a revolution, a butterfly flap and its sure that this small flap is going to change a million lives!
