Muscat - 

It was a riot of colours at the Afrah Ballroom of Grand Hyatt Muscat on Tuesday evening when the curtains went up on the inaugural edition of the Oman Woman of the Year Awards.

Organised by Muscat Daily,  the evening surely belonged to the ladies, as 23 winners with varied backgrounds sat among a captivated audience, soon to be awarded with trophies for their outstanding achievements. It was the first time that women from such diverse fields and age groups were being felicitated on a common platform in Oman.

“We’ve gathered here today to celebrate women who have made a difference in fields as diverse as technology, customer service, arts, education, sports, to name a few,” said Mohana Prabhakar, chief executive of Apex Press and Publishing, who welcomed the attendees.

She pointed out that being a successful or strong woman was not about asking for concessions or special treatment. Rather, it was about earning respect for one’s own capabilities and asking not to be treated differently.

The audience comprised guests nominated for the various awards along with their family members, friends and colleagues who were present in large numbers to cheer them as they proceeded to receive their coveted trophies - an acrylic figurine in a rich lilac hue, signifying the grace of womanhood.

Every awardee received a tumultuous applause from the audience as the spotlight led them to the dais accompanied by vibrant music.

And, as Barka Shahbal al Bakry, who received the Lifetime Achievement award for her significant contribution to the community, summed up, “This was an excellent function and I am very, very pleased. It’s not so much about the appreciation but the acknowledgment of my work. I hope it will be an inspiration for other women to follow the steps of the awardees in all the categories.”
