Antara Nandy, Jim Ankan Deka and Vinod M Singh (a shot from Aakaxok Subo Khojo)

When the sixteen year old Antara Nandy met Jim Ankan Deka (who is also sixteen at heart), all they could talk about was vibrancy of life and reaching up to the blue skies. Little wonder, the duo came up with a song called ‘Aakaxok Subo Khojo’, which in Assamese means ‘the desire to touch the sky’. Previously Nandy and Deka had collaborated on a campaign against violence towards women, "Awaaz - speak up against sexual violence", where Nandy raised her voice against child sexual abuse.
