As many as 50 mothers have shown their talent with their loved ones on the stage though many of them did not have any prior experience in expressing their ideas before huge gathering.

A few mothers and kids, wearing same colour dresses, danced on the dais for the popular film songs. Some of the women shared their ideas with others about the techniques they were adopting to inculcate tradition and culture among the kids. JCI-Femina representatives Neelima Prasad, Paidi Rajani, Sobharani and others expressed happiness for the overwhelming response for the first ever beauty contest held for the young mothers.

Our purpose was served with the good response for the contest,” said Ms.Neelima and Ms.Rajani.

The participants have said that such competitions would instil confidence among the mothers.
