"Right now, I am in Lucknow, India with UNICEF. I am really looking forward to this field visit. I spent a few of my childhood years at school in Lucknow, I have family and friends here. And I am keen to understand how the needle has shifted for women and children in the state of Uttar Pradesh. I want to see first-hand how technology and innovation are making that shift at a (larger) scale. Across India, gender inequality results in unequal opportunities, and it is the girls that are most disadvantaged," Priyanka Chopra said.(HT Photo/Deepak Gupta) expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout
