Add to this, during that press conference held Wednesday at the Blue Haven Resort, TV users will have an easy to use electronic TV guide and a host of leading new channels.

I want to say a massive thank you to our loyal customers for their patience during this process – we hope they’ll agree it’s been worth the wait.” And Digicel is serious about that thank you with three months of free premium movies to TV subscribers and a free upgrade to its broadband customers.

Noble initiative for acid attack survivors

first_imgA 22-year-old Reshma Bano Qureshi and a 34-year-old Meena Khatun are the newly employed women under an odd but unique initiative by The Lalit Suri Hospitality Group. Both, survivors of a heinous crime – acid attack – are now working in the Flower Room, curating and creating flower arrangements for each room, providing the guests of the Lalit with a pleasing welcoming sight. It was Keshav Suri, the executive director of the group who is trying his best to give a better life and bring forth the marginalized communities into the mainstream.

Kitty Su continued this trend in 2018 by having transgender Chef Trapani, a globally celebrated authority in Tex-Mex Food, take on a five-city tour.In addition to all of this, perhaps the most notable initiative by The Lalit Group in 2017 was their collaboration with the NGO, Make Love Not Scars to host a high fashion couture fashion show, Powerwalk, where acid attack survivors strutted down the ramp to let society know that beauty comes from confidence and acceptance. The show had outfits donated by 20 designers who came together to ignore competition and create a sense of belonging and unity. The Lalit also helped a survivor, Sonia with her surgery, hosted her stay at the hotel and invested in her dream to own a beauty parlour in Hyderabad. Over time, Keshav Suri’s inspiration to provide acceptance and equality to the survivors has driven the Lalit Group of Hotels to employ two acid attack survivors into the hotel’s family.last_img read more
