About 15 of them came from different parts of Pakistan. Kosar Bano honoured me with a traditional cap which she said is offered to someone you like and respect. In the second half of the day  attended by students and NGO activists, we paid our tributes to Nigar Ahmad, celebrated and discussed One Billion Rising and had a discussion on gender, patriarchy and Feminism. We ended with all of us singing together.
