Mumbai, June 1, 2012: NDTV and Coca-Cola India along with the master blaster Sachin Tendulkar today celebrated the completion of the 100th school under the ‘Support My School’ initiative. As part iof the celebrations, campaign Ambassador Sachin Tendulkar spent valuable time with the children of Priyadarshani School, Mumbai.

Continuing their support to various schools nationally, Priyadarshani School in Mumbai became 100th school to benefit from NDTV-Coca Cola ‘Support My School’ initiative. To commemorate this milestone, Sachin Tendulkar, who actively participated in the success of the campaign, visited the school personally today. Not only did he inspect the school, but also interacted with the school children and advised that they must maintain a balance between studies and extra-curricular activities

Few talented students of the school entertained Sachin by performing small acts on Shivaji Maharaj and Savitribai Phule which was thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated by him. Additionally, Sachin also played cricket and badminton with the school children. Later, the school children enthusiastically participated in a Dahi handi act in which the handis were smashed with one of the stumps.

However, Sachin made sure to inculcate the importance of studies and coming regularly to school with the students. He also mentioned that with the funds, the school introduced appropriate sanitation facilities especially for girl students, rainwater harvesting facilities, and play area for the students and most importantly special training for teachers so they can share the same with the school’s students. He also inaugurated the computer room and library issuing the first book to a student which didn’t exist until the campaign helped the school.

Who sourced Leno’s sherwani?

SOPHIE CHOUDRY, THAT’S WHO. THE SINGER-ACTRESS WILL HOST JAY LENO ON HIS FORTHCOMING TRIP TO INDIA

Sophie Choudry has found a new friend — in American TV chat show host Jay Leno. She not only dressed him up for a recent minifilm, she also gave music to the project that features Leno’s Indian car.

And courtesy their budding closeness, the singeractor will now host the international celebrity on his forthcoming trip to India.

Leno, known for his extensive car collection, recently welcomed a low- cost Indian four- wheeler into his elite garage. He even commissioned a minifilm to capture the entire process — from production to its ultimate delivery in Los Angeles.

The British- Indian singer created the background music for this project. And naturally, Sophie is thrilled about her association with the international celebrity. “ I’m glad that they decided to use three of my songs for the film. It’s an honour to a part of his pet project,” she says.

Though she hasn’t met Leno yet, she’s in touch with him via email.

In fact, it was her idea to dress him up in traditional Indian attire for the minifilm.

She notes, “ I suggested to the team they get Jay out of his usual denims and put him in a sherwani for this episode.

Fortunately, they loved the idea so I got them connected with Delhi- based couturier Manav Gangwani who designed it.” Ironically, the outfit cost more than the car, a Tata Nano! According to Sophie, Leno is gearing up to visit India next year. “ I’m looking forward to hosting him in 2013. I’d be more than happy to show him around Mumbai and introduce him to some of the coolest folks in the city and fellow car- enthusiasts like himself. He arranged an Indian dance troupe in LA to welcome the car but I’ll be giving him a grand Indian welcome,” she adds.

Making a comeback

For a long while, Sophie has been out of the media’s radar but she insists she has been busy performing live on stage and corporate events. “I guess I should be going out more and meeting people for good work,” the Mumbai-based siren assures, “You’ll be seeing more of me in the future.”

I suggested to the team they get Jay out of his usual denims and put him in a sherwani for this episode. Fortunately, they loved the idea — SOPHIE CHOUDRY
