The Quint is India’s Mobile-First digital news platform that aims to take digital news to the next level.

Living within an urban cocoon – as we do – and being fed stories of a smartphone boom often makes us forget that not everyone is privy to the same indulgences.

Pandey ji, a guard at our office, is a classic example of said disparity. In fact, while he’s gone about his daily duties, he has often wondered what The Quint does. Nand Kumar Singh (Pandey Ji), knew we are a digital news platform, but he had not the faintest idea of what that actually meant.

He knew what a smartphone was, but he couldn’t afford one.

We decided to help out the best way we could – empower him with the tools of a growing, booming digital India. We decided to hand him a smartphone.

Motorola India offered to help. And as a part of their gratification programme, they sent us a Motorola Moto E Second Gen smartphone for Nand Kumar Singh.

Take a look at how his life changed as he became a part of Digital India.
