Laterally these two people handover the session to Mr. Khaleel Jageer. He started with Technology and Women in technology. Later He went into Mozilla and its project. Then he raised the question about importance of Language to a human. Simultaneously he fired another question importance of mother tongue to a human. This two question make the participants to think more. Ultimately they started to answer with their own point about language.
