Introduces Mi Scholarship worth INR 2 Crore for thousands of students across India to pursue higher education 



Mi India, India’s number one smartphone and smart TV brand has created a new Guinness World Records feat by setting up the world’s ‘Largest Oil Lamp’ installation – “The ‘Ray of Hope”. The Ray of Hope is a part of the brand’s on-going Durga Puja celebrations. Building on the symbol of hope that was created by the installation, Mi India will also mobilize scholarships worth INR 2 Crore to be distributed among thousands of students in partnership with ‘Buddy4Study’, India’s largest student empowerment program. The brand is collaborating with former cricketer Sourav Ganguly for this campaign and has jointly shared this announcement through a digital film across its social channels today.


The installation of the Lamp has been done at Ballygunge Cultural Association’s Durga Puja, Kolkata  and was inaugurated by popular artists Mir Afsar Ali and Priyanka Sarkar. The record has been attempted based on two parameters, volume and size. The lamp will be on display for people visiting the pandal from 22nd October to 26th October at the venue.


Additionally, Mi India will enable the student community from underprivileged segments to pursue higher education in continuation to their efforts in increasing literacy and online education in the country. Partnering with Buddy4Study, Mi India will enable thousands of students across India in senior secondary classes and graduation courses. Buddy4Study will help Mi India, mobilize, manage and execute the scholarship program. With education being one of the 17 sustainable development goals today, the scholarships could help those very bright meritorious students reach their full potential. 


As a part of puja celebration, the brand collaborated once again this year with popular singer Rupam Islam in Kolkata to create 2020’s new Puja song-  ‘Amar Pujo’. Reinvigorating the festival spirit, the song celebrates unity and togetherness despite all the limitations & restrictions this year .


The Ray of Hope and the scholarship program builds up on the brand’s social initiatives last year wherein the brand was awarded two world records for Largest Notebook Mosaic – Image and Largest Donation of School Supplies in 24 hours on 08 November 2019.
