MTV, renowned for its groundbreaking initiatives, proudly presents ‘MTV Question Marks’, an insightful pro-socio endeavour with Cause Ambassador and renowned author, poet and screenwriter, Shaheen Bhatt. The parent-focused mindset reorientation workshop took centre stage at Mithibai College on 4th October with mental health experts Aanchal Narang – Founder of Another Light Counselling, Psychologist, Anureet Sethi – Co-founder, Chairperson, Trijog – Know Your Mind, General Manager (IEC) Podar Education Network on the stage along with Arushi Sethi Shah – CEO, Co-Founder, Trijog – Know Your Mind and Ankur Goel – Founding Member & COO at Drums Food. In a society where marks and academic achievements have often been the sole measure of success, MTV’s latest campaign takes a bold step to redefine these parameters for today’s youth.
Talking about the campaign and her personal journey battling against mental health issues, Cause Ambassador Shaheen Bhatt, said, “I’m honoured to be a part of ‘MTV Question Marks’, a critical changemaker for the youth of today. I’ve always believed that marks are not the sole measure of an individual’s worth, as championed by the campaign thought – ‘Marks hai, benchmark nahi’. It’s important more than ever, that parents reorient their idea of ‘success’ and provide a healthier approach to nurturing our young minds. Let’s create a world where our children thrive not only academically but also emotionally and mentally.”
Aanchal Narang, Founder of Another Light Counselling, Psychologist said, “Exams are often equated with a child’s capability to succeed, which is unfair threshold. With this campaign, we hope to create a space where parents can learn and understand their children in a way most have not before. We aim to help parents navigate through their children’s academic life while being empathetic and compassionate.”
“We champion celebrating efforts, debunking the misconception that top academic performance defines worth. Our campaign emphasizes nurturing environments, acceptance, and mental health support, bridging the gap with Trijog.” Added, Arushi Sethi Shah, CEO, Co-Founder, Trijog – Know Your Mind

By prioritizing emotional resilience, empathy, and compassion, we pave the way for societal stability. Join our campaign to shift focus from IQ to EQ, creating a stronger, empathetic society.”
