The fifth women's car rally from Gurgaon to Jhamdoli (Jaipur) via Pratapgarh Fort was flagged off on Saturday. The venue, Hotel Fortune Excalibur on Sohna Road, was abuzz with activity since early morning.

Since its inception in 2007, the initiative by NGO Uthaan has seen participation by women across ages grow by leaps and bounds. But what made this year's event was even more special was that it was dedicated to the spirit of womanhood ahead of International Women's Day on March 8.

MV Vashishtha, senior advisor of Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitaran Nigam, flagged off the rally. The time, speed and distance parameter also differentiates the event from others. Twenty-five out of the more than 100 women who participated will be awarded exciting holiday packages and certificates.
