४ मार्च को बदलापुर (महाराष्ट्र) की मैराथन हॉउसिंग सासायटी में लोक राज संगठन की स्थानीय समिति द्वारा आयोजित अंतरराष्ट्रीय महिला दिन बड़े ही रोचक ढंग से मनाया गया। कार्यक्रम में तकरीबन 70 महिलाएं और 30 बच्चों ने हिस्सा लिया। सब से रोचक और खुशी देनेवाली बात यह थी कि इन 70 महिलाओं में 23 वर्ष की युवतियों से लेकर 75 वर्ष की, दिल से अभी नौजवान, महिलाओं ने भी बड़े उत्साह से हिस्सा लिया। हमारे लोक राज के सदस्य जिन्होंने पहल लेकर इस कार्यक्रम का आयोजन किया, उन्हें मैराथन रहिवासियों द्वारा बहुत सरहाया गया। महिलाएं इतनी खुश थीं कि उन्होंने अंत में लोक राज से जुड़ने की इच्छा व्यक्त की।
