The dairy giants have released a fantistic cartoon featuring Assam’s very own Hima and the company mascot, the ‘Amul girl’.
With a clever twist of words using Hima’s surname, Das, the Amul cartoon bears the message: “Das the way to go, girl”.
The cartoon shows the ‘Amul Girl’ holding Hima’s four international golds (which she has won within 15 days) and saluting her. The cartoon version of Hima can be seen holding a sandwich topped with a cube of Amul butter, with a triumphant smile on her face.
The cartoon also features the message: “Amul: Always gold” on the bottom right corner.
