First Made in India bottled sugarcane juice OMG! (Oh My Ganna) partners with Haryana Hammers to promote Kushti

The truly made in India drink OMG! (Oh My Ganna) partners with Indian wrestling heroes of Haryana Hammers at Pro Wrestling League (PWL) to promote Kushti in the country. In its endeavor to take India’s pride factors to the world stage this indigenously developed Sugarcane juice brand is energizing Indian and International pehlwans. OMG! is the next best thing to fresh sugarcane juice and is trusted by the Haryana Hammers team to refresh their players after the tough matches.

Wrestling requires top notch fitness and stamina and a wrestler cannot go with anything but the best diet, routine and lifestyle to stay fit and healthy. Considered as the King of juices, Sugarcane Juice is blessed with extremely high nutritional properties. We Indians love our traditional beverages and are crazy for freshly extracted sugarcane juice. But the availability at street vendor shops under extreme unhygienic conditions is the biggest concern. Due to its highly perishable nature, it cannot be preserved beyond a few hours, which has also restricted the availability of canned sugarcane juice in India.

Taking up the challenge, Nutricane Beverages Pvt. Ltd., created its first bottled Sugarcane Juice OMG! (Oh My Ganna) with a non-refrigerated shelf life, same great taste and nutritional values as fresh sugarcane juice without adding any chemical preservatives.

Being a proud partner of Haryana Hammers, OMG! Sugarcane juice is offering every sip of nostalgia at this energetic and adventurous platform with the earthy taste notes of the fresh cane juice, completing the experience with the glass bottle.

Pro Wrestling League (PWL) is an initiative to revive all the adventure, all the fun that Kushti was once associated with – and Haryana Hammers is one of the top teams that is part of this League along with 5 other teams. Geared up to register the win, the bandwagon of Haryana Hammers is being led by players who have a history of accolades and wins alongside their names both nationally and internationally. This year, the team has three Rio Olympic Medalists Helen Maroulis (57 Kg), Sun Yanan (50 Kg) and Hassan Rahimi Sabzali (57 Kg) and four National Champions Sumit (125 Kg), Roublejit Singh Rangi (92 Kg), Sarita Mor (62 Kg) and Rajneesh (67 Kg). The team also has Khetik Tsabolov (74Kg), who is a two time winner of World Wrestling Championship and Pooja Sihag (76Kg) who has consistently won the Asian Championship for four years. Behind the team is the vision of Olive Sports – a venture that aims to revive the stature of Kushti in this country so as to bring the real heroes into the limelight.

With its 1st experiential store, Belgium-based brand Deceuninck (dealing in UPVC Door & Window system) is eyeing to expand its footprint in the Indian Renovation and Individual Home Owners Market. CEO Mr. Francis VanEeckhout and Director – Turkey and Emerging Markets Mr. Ergun Cicekci, Director – International Business Development – Mr. Moez Mohmedali – Deceuninck will be inaugurating the showroom this month located in Saket, New Delhi.

Deceuninck products are used worldwide in varied climatic conditions i.e., tropical climates like that of Chile/Brazil or hot climates like in the Middle East or the high UV areas in parts of Australia. As for India, at a time when New Delhi and other parts of India are struggling to keep its noise and air pollution under permissible limits and extreme temperatures at bay, Deceuninck’s UPVC Doors and Windows will help in reducing the noise and pollution levels considerably and save individuals from extreme hot weathers.

Satish Kumar, Country Manager, Deceuninck, avers, “Noise is a major issue in most cities across India considering the traffic snarls, urbanization and rapid increase in metro network. Our Zendow system has the potential to offer high noise insulation and air tightness against the pollution. ”

Deceuninck products suitability in Indian environment

Opportunity for growth

Deceuninck is betting on the Indian market’s huge growth potential and the demand in housing sector increasing every year, especially in the urban and semi-urban areas.

On how lucrative the Indian market is for Deceuninck, Francis VanEeckhout, CEO, Deceuninck says, “ India has a very high potential considering the growth of housing sector in India, implementation of new policies like RERA, GST, lower interest rates, higher disposable income in the mid-high end segment, affordable home sector growing at a fast pace given its infrastructure status and of course better informed, internet savvy customers of today. Indian consumers are gradually understanding the necessity of high-quality windows behind the glamorous curtains.” “We plan to be in both the projects and retail segment in India.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama inaugurates Smile Foundation’s initiative, ‘The World of Children’

It is said that a child’s smile can brighten up anyone’s day – imagine what would happen when 550 innocent smiles light up a place. This was the view that greeted attendees at NCUI Auditorium, August Kranti Marg, on November 19, 2017 on the launch of Smile Foundation’s ‘The World of Children’ initiative. Approximately 550 children from privileged and underprivileged background were present for the landmark event, which was graced by the Guest of Honour, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, amongst other prominent dignitaries.

The event witnessed the launch of the initiative – ‘The World of Children’. Conceptualised as a one-of-its-kind platform that brought together children from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds, ‘The World of Children’ is aimed at enabling children to discuss their issues challenges, and ideas with each other, as well as youth icons and inspirational leaders from the world over. The initiative is aimed at helping children and adults understand the problems that plague today’s youth and to find the right outlet for their energy and enthusiasm through meaningful, thought-provoking discussions, relevant advice, and guidance.

The event kicked off with the introduction and formal welcome of His Holiness onto the stage, followed by an address by His Holiness to the children in attendance. It was followed by another address and Q&A session between His Holiness and the students. Children from Gramin Vikas Samiti, Nai Disha, Ina Raja Memorial Education Trust, Neev – Mission Education centres of Smile Foundation and from the privileged schools – Bharti Public School (Swasthya Vihar), Bharti Public School (Mayur Vihar), Mount Carmel School, Queen Mary School, Kothari International, Victoria Public School, Mother Global Public School, and Ahlcon International School were the schools participating at the event.

Reciting anecdotes from his life and experience and laying emphasis on self-creation, His Holiness The Dalai Lama said, ”I see much development in the field of education in the recent years. One can change the way of thinking in order to reduce the gap of rich and poor, both of them have the responsibility to bring in education. I always stress, you should develop self confidence. I would like to contribute to the task taken up by the Smile Foundation and take the mission of equal education and infrastructure to all and bridge this gap. Self creation is very important and you can become a great person through will-power, hardwork and dedication.”

Citing India, His Holiness The Dalai Lama said, ”India is my home, both physically and mentally, since last fifty years and I am a student of the Nalanda tradition. In this tradition there is a lot of emphasis on reasoning, logic, and experiment and not faith. Ancient knowledge of India is more meaningful today, today the world is going through a crisis; it is highly developed but there is no inner peace. Inner peace comes from training of mind and not temporary shortcuts.”

His Holiness in his message to the children concluded, ”It is your responsibility to build this 21st century into a better, compassionate and peaceful generation. In order to build a better world you need determination, strictly secular education, universal responsibility.”

Speaking on the launch, Mr. Santanu Mishra, Co-founder & Executive Trustee, Smile Foundation, said, “The children today – whether privileged or underprivileged, need support, advice and guidance to help them realize their true potential, make the right choices, and discover a meaningful purpose in life. The lessons that are learnt in childhood tend to stay with us throughout our lives. We believe that the wise words, advice and guidance of real-life achievers such as His Holiness – the Dalai Lama will positively influence the thought-process and decision-making of the children and will be cherished by them all their lives. We are extremely thankful to His Holiness to grace us with his presence and enrich us with his thoughts. The only objective of “The World of Children” is to ensure that the young minds of our country grow up as good human beings and responsible change-makers committed to build a better world for all.”

In today’s world, depression amongst children the world over is on the rise, as are other critical issues such as loneliness, insecurity, and anxiety etc. This has resulted in a rapid increase in drug abuse, violence, and suicide amongst school-going children of all ages. What’s worse is that these issues often either get swept under the rug because of the fear of social rejection, mistaken for a lack of will, or ignored.

“Ignoring this problem will not make it go away, which is why we are looking to address it with our latest initiative, ‘The World of Children’. Through this unique, one-of-its-kind outreach programme, we are looking to encourage children from various socioeconomic backgrounds to openly discuss their problems with their peers and elders, and to find solutions to those problems through their own experiences, learning, and observations. This will not only help in raising greater awareness about the various issues that plague children today, but also in creating a supportive and nurturing environment that can help them in overcoming challenges, making the right life choices, and realising their true potential,” added Santanu.

Established in 2002 to effect a positive change at the grassroots level, Smile Foundation has been ceaselessly working towards alleviating the problems and challenges faced by underprivileged children, their families, and their communities. Smile Foundation has won widespread recognition and accolades for its pioneering work in the field of child empowerment over the years, engaging and empowering underprivileged children, youth and women through relevant education, innovative healthcare, and market-focussed livelihood programmes.
