An idea curated by two friends hailing from different cities of India having distinct cultures, beliefs’ and value system; uniting on being victims of fat shaming and dark skinned. This page has been created to change the mindset of people globally towards these issues. Our aim is to bring together like minded people to share their experiences and drive the campaign forward so that it reaches the masses and people drop this social stigma and accept beauty in all forms.
Subodhika and Shravya come from two different states of India, New Delhi and Hyderabad respectively. They both first met at a business conference in New Delhi. Hardly acquainted, they found a lot common in between and none of them knew that a formal interaction will develop into a long term friendship and beyond. They both maintained contact over calls and messages for the next two years. With a couple of trips of Shravya to New Delhi, their bond became stronger by the day. Having common areas of interest, they started to believe and often discussed their thoughts and opinions on certain issues.
Later in 2017, Subodhika showed great interest in going down to Hyderabad to meet Shravya and to visit Tirupati Balaji. The plan was implemented in January 2018. Both of them discussing their personal lives on a long train journey, found that they should do something collectively for the cause they care for. The day they had to leave from Tirupati, they developed an idea to work on sensitizing and changing the mindset of people towards body shaming and colorism. Since then there has been no looking back. The idea developed into a concept and with the conviction of both, it has taken the shape of Blawn& Big.
