- An article Published in Chaturang (Loksatta): Saturday, February 23, 2013.

Functioning since September 2002 with the help of a few marriage bureaus from Pune, this is one of our most sought-after activities.
The concept of covering up the patches with simple Foundation Cream after matching the color tone is novel. It boosts up one's confidence while presenting oneself in day-to-day activities.
Shweta Association offers help to all these people for better placement. Please send your resume to us, if you are unemployed or not happy with current job.
