** What is saying about the sand art video for United Nation Development Programme on International Day of Girl Child 2022.

” Not all ads have to flashy, a mass-masala entertainer, star a megastar or have a deep storyline to be impressive. Sometimes it’s the simplicity that touches the heart. This new spot from UNDP INDIA is a great example of simple and effective messaging. On the occasion of ‘International Day of the Girl Child’, UNDP India has put together a spot where they use sand artist Dr. Badal Barai’s beautiful illustrations and Nilanjana Biswas’s voiceover to show how dreams and ambition have no gender. The spot is a pledge to create an equal future for all. At a little over a minute long, this spot is impactful and delivers a moving message. A great watch and a definite Mast in our opinion.”
