For the last two decades of her life she has striven persistently to educate women above their rights and duties, given them a sense of dignity in front of their menfolk through her Women’s Court Every penny she received as contribution from feminist organizations throughout the world has been recycled into her noble social work.

Bhartiya Nari Samaj,
Thank you for your letter requesting me to preside over the felicitation ceremony for Mrs Hemvati Rani Singhania. I heartily and gratefully accept this offer.
I have been in continual touch with the social activities of Mrs Singhania for a decade and have personally known her as a very warm friend. I have referred to her and her activities in various reports and papers read out at international conferences organized by feminist and socialist organizations. At the last conference at Munich, many delegates expressed a desire to visit Kerala and acquaint themselves with the activities of Mrs Singhania.
Once again, I shall deem it my privilege to preside over the function.
