UMZ 2016 – Overview
Today women have progressed in a number of spheres, yet looking from a wider perspective, the situation yet remains grim where their presence is curtailed by number of restrictions imposed by family, culture & age old traditions.
“To awaken the people, it is the women who must be awakened. Once she is on the move, the family moves, the village moves, the nation moves”- Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru.
Thus it is true that empowering women means empowering them to rebuilding the society. Adversities more often than not break the spirit, however for some it helps to break the records. There are many such examples in our society who have stood against all odds, stood for themselves and help many like them for a better today than yesterday. A humble attempt by Zee Marathi to bring forth such extraordinary work of REAL Life heroes who have made a positive impact on society at large is ‘Unch Mazha Zhoka Puraskar’.
The awards recognize the commendable work of women across various fields in Maharashtra. These awards are governed by a board of jury members who finalise the winners across categories. Initiated in 2013, 2016 will be the fourth year of this initiative. This year the ground event is scheduled to take place on 18th August & the telecast is on 28th August 2016 @ 7 PM on Zee Marathi.
