To spread awareness for #NoWorldWithoutGirls, eBay India and the #Fab4, SANAM will launch the music video on Thursday, July 20, 2017 across all digital platforms and undertake a Facebook and YouTube live event with the Band on the same day between 2:30-3:00 pm.

Commenting on the launch of the campaign, Shivani Suri, Director Marketing, eBay India, said, “At eBay India, it’s been our continuous endeavor to inspire consumers to shop for their favorite things from our widest range of 10 crore products without any inhibitions or fear of societal judgements.  But we stand against the one thing that judges a girl even before she is born, by prohibiting availability of sex determination kits on our site. Through the campaign #NoWorldWithoutGirls and our association with immensely popular and gifted talent such as Band SANAM we aim to drive awareness for this cause amongst the youth in the language (music) they understand best.”
