Population Foundation of India in collaboration with Dainik Jagran organized an evening in celebration of women’s empowerment, as embodied in the television and radio series -- Main Kuch Bhi Kar Sakti Hoon. The event saw an enthralling performance by Malini Awasthi, renowned Indian folk singer, who captivated the audience with her voice and songs. She shared anecdotes related to the folk songs and stories that indicated the celebration of a girl child in ancient India, and related it to the messages in the trans media series. 

Three Main Kuch Bhi Kar Sakti Hoon Real Heroes were identified from five districts in Bihar based on the year-long outreach activities undertaken by PFI in partnership with NGOs. The three heroes who were felicitated at the event were Usha Devi from Patna rural, Nirma Devi from Gaya and Surabhi Devi from Bhagalpur. Inspired by the series, they have taken positive action in their own life and are also spreading the message on the importance of family planning and women’s empowerment within their communities
