By Tricitynews
Chandigarh 13th June:- Magma Fincorp Ltd., has announced M Scholar, a well-recognized scholarship programme for meritorious students from underprivileged families. During the past three years, Magma had awarded scholarships to 200 students.
India is a young country aspiring to grow.  While the primary and upper primary education is free in India, a significant number of children drop out of the school because of their poor socio-economic background. Some of the reasons for this drop out include Poverty, lack of opportunities for students living in villages and poor infrastructure facilities especially for the girl children in remote parts of the country. This results in school and college drop outs of students who are otherwise talented and meritorious.    
Keeping alive the motto of ‘investing in the smallest dreams’, Magma started offering financial assistance in form of scholarships to such students in 2015 under “M-Scholar”.  Students are selected on the basis of their academic performance and socio-economic background.
Speaking to the media, Kaushik Sinha, Vice President, CSR, Corporate Communications & Admin, Magma Fincorp Ltd, elaborated on the initiative and the application procedure. “Magma is happy to announce a new batch of M-Scholar this year. He added that M Scholar is helping shape destiny of 200 meritorious students from underprivileged families and a new batch of students will now benefit from this.

The story of play then goes back to 1921 and again come back in 1994 and ends in Kanpur, where Shiv Verma another comrade of Bhagat Singh is alive. ‘Gagan Damama Bajyo highlights the ideological learning of Bhagat Singh and also tries to project his thinking pattern. Relying on the combination of Music, Dance and visual effects relating to body Theatre this play is designed as the collage comprising of the important events of Bhagat Singh’s life. With the synchronization of chorus and transformation to individual character their movements and the change over from one scene to another was affected without much ado.
