Young FICCI Ladies Organisation (YFLO) organized Ashaji - a brimful of magic to kick-start their year under the leadership of Avarna Jain at The Lalit with legendary singer Smt. Asha Bhonsle as Guest of Honour. On this occasion Neeta Boochra (President FLO), Celebrated RJ Sayema Rehman, Itiva Chopra (Sr. Vice Chairperson, YFLO) along with committee members & others were also present there.

Addressing the gathering, Avarna Jain said, I'm happy and excited with the new responsibility at YFLO and I'll try to prove myself with some good work, like the organization is doing for 11 years now. The theme for the year is “EMBARK, ENDURE, EMERGE: A New India”. It resonates the sentiments of the youth of India Today - ever hopeful for change, ever ready to persevere and ever prepared to emerge a winner. As the team embarks on a new journey this year, one important aspect is  that YFLO is planning to go green, says Avarna.

She further added, the year ahead aims towards empowerment of women at all levels – to empower its members with better knowledge, skills and ideas. Some events are catered to enrich the members, other workshops are held to equip the members to hone their skills in different areas such as finance or management.

On this occasion, the legendary singer shared her experiences. She said, everyone faces challenges in their life, 
the challenges that I had to face during my early years were humongous. There were many established singers and it was difficult for me to get into the industry. So, I decided to change my style of singing. She mentioned about her hardships she had to face early in her career. 'Eena Meene Deeka' was the first song I sang trying the new style, although the old people criticised me a lot, but I had found many fans and that is how it started," she said.. Asha ji concluded the event with some lines of song 'In Aankhon Ki…'.

At 28, Avarna Jain is the youngest ever Chairperson of YFLO Delhi. She is daughter of Mr Sanjiv Goenka Chairman of Rs 28000 crore RP Sanjiv Goenka Group  and is married to Mr Devansh Jain (founder of Inox Wind), son of Vivek Jain of the Inox Group. Avarna graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a Communication degree. She runs a café chain Au Bon Pain that has recently made public its plans to expand into Delhi, in Khan Market, Defence Colony and GK 1 M Block Market.
