Mayor of Mumbai, will be the Guest of Honour. Hanjer T-shirts will also be distributed on the occasion.

With the theme, ‘Recycle Waste for a Healthy City’, the Hanjer Green Run is a unique 5 km mini marathon initiative to create awareness of proper disposal and recycling of waste. Log on to ‘www.facebook.com/hanjerhere’ on Facebook or www.mithibaikshitij.com to register.

Dr. Irfan Furniturewala, Promoter, Hanjer Biotech Energies, said, “Hanjer Green Run is a unique 5 km mini marathon to create awareness in Mumbai about the urgent need for proper disposal and recycling of municipal waste in the city to reduce the increasing risk of various life threatening diseases such as malaria, dengue, etc. The recent death of revered film maker, Yash Chopra, who passed away after suffering from dengue is a case in point. These diseases are caused due to non efficient measures to dispose garbage and waste products.” He added, “The Hanjer Green Run is a wake up initiative to spread message through this marathon to join Hanjer in saving the environment and improving public health by handling waste responsibility. We genuinely feel that the leading film personalities in Bollywood can play a major role in spreading the awareness. The Hanjer initiative is an ideal platform for the entire film fraternity in Mumbai to come together and deliberate on the important measures that need to be taken to protect the environment and the public health. We are grateful to Hon. Mayor of Mumbai Shri Sunil Prabhu and film personalities who are supporting this noble cause of creating awareness amongst citizens.”

Hanjer Green Run is an effort to effect a much needed change in the way people perceive waste and project it as a positive resource, which can yield precious value. Hanjer’s objective is to awaken the conscience within every citizen and make each one believe that change starts with a single person- you. These simple efforts from citizens can help keep the city cleaner and greener providing for a better quality of life, was their message to the audience.

As a part of its corporate social responsibility and to create awareness of correct disposal of waste, Hanjer has created ‘The Green Heart project’ which includes various community programs such as ‘Trash Bash- celebrating waste’, ‘Trash Buster- an educative game on waste segregation’ and ‘Green Earth- Save the soil’, to increase awareness in cities on better and more responsible handling of waste with long term benefits to environment and quality of life. All these activities are spearheaded by a mascot named “Hanjer Girl”, a smart and friendly character which identifies with the youth of today. She is a responsible and conscious citizen who interacts with people to join her in good practices of creating a ‘Green and Healthy City’.

To play the free Hanjer Trash Buster game, web surfers can visit the Hanjer website (www.hanjer.com) or log on to ‘www.facebook.com/hanjerhere’ on Facebook, and follow ‘Hanjer Girl’ – the smart young mnemonic for Hanjer’s Green initiatives such as Trash Bash, and click on Trash Buster. They can also get useful tips from the attractive ‘Hanjer Girl’ on how to make the world greener. ‘Trash Buster’ helps players understand how Hanjer’s unique waste processing, recycling and resource recovery model helps cities manage their waste more efficiently and reduce land dumping. It explains how waste can be transformed into energy, compost and other green and recyclable products.

Ghost found in Chandigarh

We found ghost in Chandigarh! Got that? No? Many of you will not get it, let us explain.

During the audition of (Chandigarh based) Pinta & Dehal productions film “2 Nights in Soul Valley”, the entire star cast was finalized, except the most crucial character the ghost around whom the story of the film revolves. The director of the film Harish Sharma was tense as the date for the shoot was nearing and none of the actors who auditioned were suited the role of the ghost. However, the entire unit left for Chandigarh. The unexpected happened in Chandigarh as we found our ghost in the form of Yashan Jindal, who is a student of D.A.V school. Although this is Yashan’s debut film, but he has done a great job in it.

This Ghost from Chandigarh has taken the responsibility to scare you and when you watch this movie this young ghost of 17 will surely let you know the meaning of fear.

Life OK brings Savdhaan India’s fight to Mumbai with Sachin Pilgaonkar

Every day, thousands of people come to Mumbai with dreams of making a name for themselves and earning quick money. But the illusion of earning fast money quickly fades away as reality sets in. In a bid to achieve their dreams quickly, people often fall prey to greed and take a wrong turn on their road to success by committing crimes to fulfill their unreasonable desires and aspirations. This insatiable greed for quick bucks has time and again made the city of dreams become a city of nightmare for many people. But the Mumbaiya-Never-Say-Die spirit and its people have kept the city moving forward. In honor of those resilient Mumbaikars who stood up against wrongdoings and said ‘Aata Bas’, Savdhaan India will start its special ‘Mumbai Fights Back’ series on 8th December which will be hosted by veteran actor Sachin Pilgaonkar. The special weekend series on Mumbai specific cases was launched on Wednesday through an online movement.

Kick-starting the ‘Aata Bas’ campaign, Sachin Pilgaonkar, host of Mumbai Fights Back special series said, “I am extremely delighted to be a part of the Aata Bass initiative. Being the host of Savdhaan India’s Mumbai Fights Back, I feel it is my obligation to spread the word against increasing greed lead crimes in Mumbai. I decided to be a part of the show as it aims to encourage people to fight back against crime and criminals.”

In an attempt to make Mumbai crime free, Life OK introduced a digital application, ‘Aata Bas’ and Sachin kick started the movement against crime by being the first to pledge his support. He stood up to say ‘Aata Bas’ in an endeavor to awaken the true spirit of Mumbai and encourage people to be a part of this initiative. People can access this application either on Facebook at www.facebook.com/lifeok or on Twitter at #aatabas and pledge their support by saying ‘Aata Bas’ to greed and the crimes arising from it, thus becoming a part of a movement that aims to make Mumbai a safer place.

Life OK is guided by the philosophy of ‘cherish your values and beliefs’, aims to encourage Indian audiences to stand up for their rights. The show goes beyond mere awareness factor thus making it an extension of Life OK’s core thought.

Savdhaan India illustrates cases where people have valiantly fought back against atrocities such as female foeticide, untouchability, child labour and sexual harassment. The movement alerts viewers and inspires them to counter injustice with firm determination. The weekend series airs every Saturday-Sunday at 10pm and weekday series every Monday to Friday at 10.30pm on Life OK
