20 years ago, Pace IIT & Medical had embarked upon a difficult journey to create an
impact on the lives of young minds and in the years to follow Pace has been able to get
closer to their goals. Pace believes that financial barriers should not stop young minds
from achieving their dreams and helped educate one such young girl, Tiyasa Majumder,
daughter of a taxi driver whose dream was to become a doctor.
One of Pace’s finest student, Tiyasa has recently cleared her medical entrance
examination and has managed to secure a position at West Bengal’s top medical
college, R.G. Kar Medical College.
On Saturday, 7th July, 2018, at the Pace Exide More Centre, celebrated Actor
& RJ, Mir along with Tiyasa and her family launched #TiyasarKhoj, a film by
Pace as a tribute to her undying quest to achieve her dream of being a
doctor. Pace also has launched a website called www.tiyasarkhoj.com for
similar aspirants like her.
The website has been launched to inspire thousands of other girls and boys
to dare to dream to become what they want. The entire initiative is rooted in
the socio – economic fabric of West Bengal and aims to invite participation
from the people of Bengal to come forward and nominate someone they
know who deserves higher education. Once nominated, the candidate will be
verified and if found deserving, they will get full support from Pace for their
coaching fee and in some special cases, their engineering and medical
college fee.
Speaking on the occasion, Rohit Agarwal, Director of Pace Kolkata, said, “Pace
Kolkata is very proud of our student Tiyasha who has inspired us to launch the
#TiyasarKhoj initiative where we will give 1 cr of scholarships in next one month. We
will not only be sponsoring her entire medical college fee , but 40 more Class 11
students like her. We will take care of their complete preparation for their engineering
or medical entrance exams for the next 2 years”
Speaking on the occasion, Vivek Modi, CEO of YellowBulbs, said – ” It’s been more
than a year since we launched Pace in Kolkata. Tiyasa’s success story inspired us to
conceive and create a special film dedicated to her and her parents. We are very
excited to take it ahead with our initiative #TiyasarKhoj and I hope the website
Tiyasarkhoj.com becomes the gateway to the dreams of millions of students of Bengal.”
Excited to launch the film Suman Sen Director of the Film and CoFounder of the
line producer Fickle Formula, said ” While making the film, I tried to capture
the moments as real as possible. The film was not scripted, so the emotional
moments are true to its core. Through the entire story I tried to encapsulate
Tiyasa’s journey towards her dream. To a hope.”
