“BYJU’S Education for All has helped me take one step closer to my dream of becoming a lawyer”, says 16-year-old Nehal*

Hoskote, 25 February 2023: An investment in knowledge pays the best interest. The story of 16-year-old Nehal* from Hoskote, Karnataka is a living testament of that. Nehal is a promising student at the Government School in Bagepalli and dreams of becoming a lawyer when she grows up. Hailing from a lower socio-economic background, Nehal was far from the resources that could help study her better to achieve her dream. However, with the support of NGO Right to Live, she was introduced to BYJU’S premium, high-quality digital learning programs through which she has been continuing her learning journey, free of cost.

Coming from a family that struggles economically, Nehal understands the importance of education and is determined to make a difference in society where injustice often prevails. Her father, the sole breadwinner brings home a meager income, just enough to help the family break even. In such a situation, it was difficult for Nehal to ask her parents for additional resources to support her education. But with the seamless access to content on BYJU’S app, she has been able to continue her learning journey, thanks to BYJU’S Education For All and NGO Right to Live.

Once struggling to source the right study materials, Nehal now practices often and works through her doubts in all subjects on the BYJU’S learning app. With the help of personalized learning content available, she is now able to study regularly and decode difficult concepts. Not limiting the benefits of the app to herself, Nehal shares the content with her friends, who have also improved their understanding of the subjects. With the courses available to them in Kannada, Nehal and her friends have been finding it extremely easy to clear their doubts without any challenges.

While painting and drawing are her hobbies, Nehal’s true passion lies in pursuing law and fighting against injustices in her society. “I want to become a lawyer one day and make a difference in our society. I want to help my family and other families in Hoskote and make justice affordable to them. I’m so happy that Right To Live introduced me to BYJU’S Education For All, as it has immensely helped me study well as well as help my classmates. Content on BYJU’S app has greatly strengthened my learning foundation and cleared doubts in math and science easily, in a personalized manner. I can now learn regularly and prepare well for my exams with innovative, fun quizzes and tests provided on the app,” says Nehal.

Launched in 2020, BYJU’S flagship social impact initiative ‘Education for All’ aims at bringing about a positive systemic change to the education ecosystem. With a mission to empower 10 million underprivileged children by 2025, the initiative has already impacted 5.5 million children in the remotest corners of the country through 175+ NGOs across 400 districts. Reinforcing its dedication to providing girls with an equal opportunity to learn, nearly 50% of the beneficiaries of BYJU’S Education for All programs are girls.

Solo exhibition presenting the recent watercolours and prints by Indrapramit Roy

Emami Ar

Kolkata, 25th February, 2023:Emami Art, one of India’s leading contemporary art galleries, presents Soliloquy, a solo exhibition of noted Indian artist Indrapramit Roy. The show, which consists of over fifty watercolours and prints, will open on February 24, 2023, on Gallery’s fifth floor, and is on view through April 15, 2023.

Done in 2020 during the covid-19 –induced lockdowns, the works – a solitary conversation of the artist with himself – bear the marks of the time. Locked at home and separated from the outside world, the lockdown phases offered the artist a space for introspection, contemplation, and inspiration for creating new kinds of work. Soliloquy is a unique body of work in Indrapramit Roy’s entire artistic oeuvre.

The exhibition has three watercolour series– quarantine diary, quarantine drawings and cacti – and large independent watercolours and prints. They show how remarkably ordinary objects and phenomena like rippling water, clouds, unfinished building construction and cacti turn into extraordinary, powerful visual images, revealing evocative and poetic use of the medium. Instead of painting ideas, Indrapramit Roy depicts what is visible and present before us. But, unlike realistic paintings, his work aims to capture psychological and spatial transient moments. For this, he finds watercolour more suitable than other mediums. Many of the pieces emerged from his daily habit of drawing and reading.

Text used in the painting is often used as the works’ titles. But they do not signify the content. They instead run parallel to the visual image creating third meanings or texts. Therefore, the image-text dialogue is one crucial aspect of the works in the exhibition.

“The works in Soliloquy were mostly done or at least started during a time when the whole world was in the throes of a cataclysmic contagion. A time that forced me to contemplate the human condition in the relative safety and isolation of my studio. The bombardment of terrible news punctuated with laughable political shenanigans, the steady stream of information mixed with disinformation created a peculiar mental state that veered from anxiety to panic and swung between clarity and clutter alternatively.

I cannot paint ideas but only what is ‘paintable’. Perhaps, that is one of the reasons why text plays such an important role in this body of work – creating a third text when seen together with the visuals. There are 54 watercolours belonging to three different suits of different sizes and two prints in this exhibition. The show has traveled from Baroda to Delhi and now at  Emami Art Kolkata in its third and final iteration. I am very excited to show my most recent works in the city of my birth after a hiatus of six years.” Indrapramit Roy, Artist

“I am delighted that we are presenting renowned contemporary artist Indrapramit Roy’s solo exhibition, which consists of over fifty watercolours and prints done chiefly during the pandemic in 2020. The works, the artist’s solitary conversation with himself, bear the marks of the hard times, revealing a sense of silence, solitude and keen observation of water, cacti and twilight scenes of the city limits. What attracted me is the intense gaze that transforms what is ordinary into something extraordinary and the evocative use of the watercolour medium. I hope the city’s art lovers will enjoy the exhibition.” Richa Agarwal, CEO Emami Art.

Hence, using Ubtan Face Wash can give you the Haldi ceremony glow, without hosting an elaborate haldi ceremony.

Conceptualized by Korra Worldwide, the new TVC showcases the unique proposition of Mamaearth’s Ubtan Face Wash, which gives a glow similar to the one from the Haldi ceremony during weddings. The film captures a delightful banter at a Haldi ceremony, where the bride’s radiant glow after wiping away the

haldi catches everyone’s attention. Even the younger sister of the bride is amazed by the bride’s glowing skin and is staring at her in awe. Shilpa notices this and playfully nudges the sister, asking if she also feels like getting married after seeing the bride’s glow. The sister responds by complimenting Shilpa’s flawless skin and expresses her desire to have the same glow every day without getting married. Shilpa then reveals her secret to glowing skin – Mamaearth’s Ubtan Face Wash.

Commenting on the campaign, Ghazal Alagh, Co-Founder and CIO at MamaEarth said “Ubtan has been treasured for generations as the secret to glowing and radiant skin. Typically used in Indian ceremonies, such as the haldi ceremony during weddings, Ubtan has been known to detain and lend a radiant glow. For our customers to experience the Ubtan glow every day, we’ve taken the best of traditional Ubtan ingredients and crafted them into a hassle-free formula in a facewash so that the benefits of Ubtan can be achieved every day. Our new TV commercial establishes the Ubtan range as synonymous with achieving the ShaadiWalaGlowEveryDay, naturally with Mamaearth Ubtan Facewash. I hope this resonates with our consumers and they choose the goodness of natural ingredients with us.”

We are proud of this work by Korra and are looking forward to continuing the great work together and helping Mamaearth build a deeper connection with the consumers.”
