Soha Ali Khan joins P&G to help build a P&G Shiksha school in Kolkata

Having impacted the lives of over 420, 000 children till date, P&G’s flagship Corporate Social Responsibility program P&G Shiksha continues to march forward with the motto ‘Padegha India, Badhega India’. In its 10th year, P&G Shiksha makes the necessary infrastructure interventions by building and supporting schools across the country thereby giving children the access to education. Supporting this endeavour, Bollywood actress Soha Ali Khan, who has been associated with the P&G Shiksha initiative for many years, paid a visit to a P&G Shiksha School in Kolkata to help paint the school walls and complete the on-going construction activities at the school. P&G Shiksha’s infrastructure interventions are key to enabling access to education to children across the country. The actress turned teacher for the day, involved the children in some interactive learning by implementing several fun tactics. She also engaged them in a rapid fire round, on a wide range of subjects and was very impressed with the confidence, intelligence, wit and exuberance demonstrated by the P&G Shiksha children.

The actress also shared her vision of empowering under privileged children with access to education and together with P&G Shiksha urged consumers to make the simple brand choice and join the program’s drive by purchasing P&G products such as Tide, Ariel, Whisper, Pampers, Olay, Head &Shoulders, Pantene, Vicks, Gillette, Oral-B & AmbiPur. These purchases enable the company to channelize part of the sales proceeds towards building and supporting schools across the country.

In West Bengal alone, P&G Shiksha has improved the lives of nearly 5000 underprivileged children through quality education, by building and supporting over 15 schools. With the objective of improving the quality of education and encouraging more children to stay in school in Kolkata, P&G Shiksha delivers key infrastructure interventions that enables access to education and motivates children to learn every day. P&G Shiksha has also been instrumental in the change by equipping schools with necessary amenities from building classrooms to building toilets, thereby bringing down the dropout rate and improving the overall literacy rate in West Bengal.

Supporting this initiative, actress Soha Ali Khan said, “I have been associated with P&G Shiksha for many years now and today I feel proud and delighted to be a part of this initiative yet again. I truly believe that education is a basic right of every child and it is heartening to see a movement like P&G Shiksha facilitating education for underprivileged children and helping them realise their dreams and providing them a better standard of living. With 42% rural areas in India still not having access to primary schools and 30% of primary schools not having proper toilets; infrastructure is a key issue at schools across the country. I am thrilled that by painting the school walls today I have been able to play a small role in giving these children a bright and colourful future and ensuring they have access to a fully functional school! I encourage all of you to join the movement by making the simple brand choice of buying P&G products, as a part of the proceeds go towards building and supporting schools. Today, at the P&G Shiksha School, not only did I discover a teacher in me, but also had a lot of fun painting the kids’ lives that are the future of India.”

P&G Shiksha has over the years received generous support from many thought leaders and celebrities such as Anupam Kher, Dr. Kiran Bedi, Anil Kumble, Rani Mukherjee, John Abraham, Abhay Deol, Farah Khan, Arbaaz Khan, Sameera Reddy, Huma Qureshi, Sushmita Sen, Kareena Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, Sharmila Tagore, Konkona Sen, Neha Dhupia, Soha Ali Khan, Lara Dutta, Preity Zinta, Jacqueline Fernandez, Jatin Das, Shaan, Chitrangada Singh, Soha Ali Khan, Shruti Hassan and many more.

P&G Shiksha also allows consumers to share in their support. This can be easily done by buying any P&G Product such as Tide, Ariel, Whisper, Pampers, Olay, Head &Shoulders, Pantene, Vicks, Gillette, Oral-B & AmbiPur and part of the proceeds will go towards building and supporting schools. Consumers can also visit P&G Shiksha’s online partner – Amazon.in (www.amazon.in/pgshiksha) to buy P&G products & support this cause.

With a motto of ‘Padhega India, Badhega India’ – P&G Shiksha believes that the secret to a brighter India lies in the quality of education of our children.

Suffering and empathy bind global cinema: Mahesh Bhatt

Mahesh Bhatt and Vinta Nanda of the NGO ACEE – The Third Eye, in order to mark the one-year anniversary of the Global Centers for Health & Development, brought together diverse filmmakers, Nigerian director of note Tunde Kelani, and Oscar-nominated American producer Stuart Sender got together to discuss health issues in global cinema.

Ravi Walia whose A Prayer of Rain consists of Interwoven stories of people in India and US as they face dilemmas of life together said, “A Prayer for Rain” is a story that needed to be told. It is about the Bhopal Gas tragedy that happened 30 years ago and has not yet achieved closure. We made this film based on the worst industrial disaster India has ever faced so that we can bring to attention the plight of the people at the time and also the current state of Bhopal where the sufferings continue even today in other forms and justice has not yet been delivered.”

Mahesh Bhatt said “The three largest film industries of the world have come together to share and learn from each other. Suffering is what touches all of us in similar ways and empathy is what binds all of humanity together. Filmmakers are sensitive to the pain and respond to this suffering through their craft. What makes this group special is their commitment to adding socially relevant elements to mainstream cinema.”

“The job of a filmmaker is to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable”, commented well-known Hollywood director Stuart Sender.

“The Global Center Summit is an opportunity for Hollywood, Bollywood and Nollywood to come together and address the most pressing health and social issues faced by the different communities of the world, enthused host Vinta Nanda.

“We are the world, and the world is us. When one makes a film, one has to put in ones’ best effort as we never know where it might reach. We hope to collaborate with and learn from the Indian film industry,” added acclaimed Nigerian director Tunde Kelani.

“The field reality in India is different from what we can imagine from an urban context. Women in rural India are changing. They are taking charge of their lives and working towards a collective consciousness leading to their own empowerment,” said acclaimed director Kalpana Lajmi.

With Juvederm XC, ageless beauty the comfortable way

Dr. Simal Soin, Dermatologist, New Delhi

Ouch…that hurts! Remember saying this to your beautician, bent diligently on you to mend you unruly eyebrows or wax your arms? Then, imagine the ache and discomfort one might have to undergo while undertaking a cosmetic makeover; one that involves going under the doctor’s knife?

Even if there is no knife, just a jab that you would like to take in order to beautify your visage…you will indeed feel the prick (and the agony). The measures we take to look good and our most beautiful, both surgical and non-surgical, often come supplemented with initial discomfort. All we do, while attempting any nip and tuck procedure or beauty injection(s), is to continuously remind our brain ‘there’s no gain without pain’. Isn’t it?

So, would you believe if you come to know that you can still gain beauty sans any suffering? Astonishing as this might sound to your ears but it is true that modern-day dermal fillers such as Juvederm XC are more comfortable option available for those seeking aesthetic enhancement. Unlike fillers of yesteryears, Juvederm XC comes in a composition that contains preservative-free Lidocaine (anesthetic) along with the major constituent – hyaluronic acid. The latter is a natural skin component responsible for maintaining the skin volume and hence the bountiful and youthful radiance.

Dermal fillers have been in use as anti-ageing solutions and aesthetic fixes from quite some time now. Patients, till date, used to experience discomfort while taking filler injection(s). However, the latest dermal filler Juvederm XC is unique. Since it contains a local anesthetic, it knocks off years from one’s face in a soothing and comfortable manner.

Most people are desirous of good looks yet they are ‘needle phobic’ and get panicky at the mere thought of a needle pricking their delicate facial skin. Hence, they get frustrated out of their unfulfilled wish of looking their best even in an advancing age. We have had patients with low self esteem coming to us, complaining how they wish to look beautiful and want to get a treatment done but back out at the last moment owning to their fear of pain. It takes a lot of counseling to get such patients mentally and psychologically prepared. Needless to say, this also consumes a lot of time.

With Juvederm XC, however, the injection experience is extremely comfortable. Hence one feels almost no discomfort and yet gains youthful features. This wondrous dermal filler that can smoothly erase glabellar lines, forehead lines and naso-labial folds (deep lines around the nose that reach up to lips).

This US-FDA approved dermal filler not only acts as your tool against the ageing effects but also helps in enhancing your facial features. For example, if you are one of those countless girls who wish to have a pout a la Hollywood hottie Angelina Jolie then, this new dermal filler comes handy. It effectively and painlessly plumps up your lip size thereby giving them a volume boost and renewed shape.

Lip augmentation and nose job are two most common requests we get from women both young and aged alike. The smooth consistency of hyaluronic acid-based XC filler along with its inherent anesthetic agent makes it tool of choice to perform the aforesaid treatments. It involves very little downtime.
