Women dignitaries from around the world came together on Friday for the fifth International Women’s Conference held at the Art of Living International Centre in the City. The three-day conference focuses on the impact of technology on women and society and the connection (if any) between spirituality and technology. The inaugural programme was presided over by Sri Sri Ravishankar. “It is wise to keep quiet when women are in power,” he joked as he began. “Technology is meant to connect people. But it causes more problems than anything else. There are many health hazards, people spend their lives before a computer without proper sleep, exercise, nutrition or meditation. There's no getting away from it either, we need to find a balance,” the Art of Living founder said.
