The Deepshikha Mahila Club is a social welfare organization established in 1965, when five like-minded ladies, Satyabhama Jalan, Radha Khemka, Anasuya Ganeriwal, Prabha Badruka and Shanti Devi Pitti, felt the need of a forum which could collectively work for the upliftment of the weaker sections of its members. Veena Marda is the current president of the club. Their numerous activities include service to the under-privileged in fields like education, healthcare, empowerment in various skills, and social development. Today, the Deepshikha Mahila Club is a premier voluntary charitable and social organization of the twin cities, and also runs a vocational training centre which works towards the self-empowerment of women in various fields. It has a strength of about 150 members and 5 honorary members. Deep Mela is an annual event, and has gained wide recognition.
