Author, columnist and film producer Twinkle Khanna is a woman of various arts. She also comes forward to support social causes and is often seen as being active about it through her social media handles. On Tuesday, the former actress posted an old picture from her school days. Tickling the funny bones, she stressed how her hairstyle was the same as her teachers. A close look at the picture and you will agree with her too. But the post was not about a random throwback but came with a point.
Twinkle Khanna was appointed the artist ambassador of the non- profit organization Save The Children India last November, which focuses on promoting the right to menstrual hygiene and adolescent health among children and slum communities. Stressing on the need of education for the girl child. She further mentioned in her tweet how ‘2/5 girls still don’t complete school.’ The post was her way of joining the #WhyTheGap to help spread awareness and provide each girl #TheRightStart.

Khanna further nominated actress Sonam Kapoor, Tahira Kashyap and husband Akshay Kumar to join the movement by coming ahead and sharing a childhood picture from their school times.
Mrs.Funnybones had expressed her happiness while being a part of the organisation and was quoted by TheHindu.com as, “I am delighted to promote adolescent health and menstrual hygiene. Through the adolescent health programme, I have interacted with the youth and learnt about the strides being made towards changing mindsets, at a time when their habits are not yet ingrained. It is uplifting to be a partner for programmes that do not just educate girls but also boys to work towards a more progressive society.”Read More
