Actress Ananya Panday is on a mission to clean up social media by doing away with abusive language and creating positivity through her campaign. She says the idea didn’t stem from her own experience of being bullied online. It’s more because she wants to set an example for people who feel like they can’t stand up for themselves. Recently the Student Of The Year 2 actress took to social media to talk about her campaign #SwachhSocialMedia. This comes after the announcement of her initiative, So Positive, earlier this year. “My reason to start So Positive and #SwachhSocialMedia campaign was inspired by what Mahatma Gandhi had said, ‘Be the change that you wish to see in the world’.
I started because once someone takes an action or one person stands up to a bully or stands up for what’s correct and they believe in, even though it might be the smallest of things... you might not feel like it can make such a big difference. I feel like if one person makes a change then everyone follows and if you want to see a change in the world, you should start it,” Ananya, who was caught in a fake certificate row, told IANS.
