About the experience

Sakshi, Pawan, Samir, Harry and Anuj enjoyed a merry feast with Taapsee. Sakshi and Taapsee chatted about their mutual love for plants and related to each other’s year-long struggle of sneaking in plants to the house unbeknownst to their families. Anuj recited a poem he had written after he watched Thappad, and Taapsee admired his lyrical prowess. Taapsee and Pawan laughed over engineering jokes, whilst Samir praised Taapsee’s physical transformation for her upcoming film Rashmi Rocket. Harry told Taapsee how Hong Kong is going through Wave 4 of the pandemic, and Taapsee told him how the pandemic in India didn’t come in waves, it had turned into one big storm! There was talk of how the pandemic did not hinder weddings from happening in India, there was talk of what pranks Taapsee carried out during college days (because Anuj felt like Taapsee was one of those people who seems like a definite prankster!). Suggestions for must-watch content were exchanged, and Taapsee asked Anuj where she could find some courage to watch the violence in Paatal Lok! She also told everyone how she really wished she could play an Indian superhero in the next Avengers! Maybe her superpower could be defeating any despair with her bubbly spirit, because that is exactly what she did for us on this unforgettable virtual date!

About Nanhi Kali

Nanhi Kali was started in 1996 with the objective of educating girls from low-income families & helping them complete 10 years of formal schooling. India has poor female literacy rates of 65% and 46% in urban and rural areas respectively. These disparities have been further accentuated by the on-going global health crisis, as girls are now even more likely to be compelled by their families to drop out of school.

In order to ensure that they are able to continue their education during the pandemic, Nanhi Kali has been providing quality digital education to the girls. Every girl receives holistic support that includes: academic support and access to an adaptive learning software via digital tablets, access to trained women tutors who mentor the Nanhi Kalis, a professionally designed sports curriculum, and a school supplies kit along with a 1 year supply of branded sanitary napkins.

Currently, they support 1,53,999 girls across 10 states in India.
