Award winning show consulted on by Religious Department’s own, Deepak Sarma

Professor Deepak Sarma, in addition to their University duties, is a cultural consultant for Netflix, Mattel, and Moonbug, and has worked on projects such as “Deepa & Anoop” and “CoComelon Lane”. For the last several years, they consulted on the new YouTube series, “Ghee Happy”, which has just been awarded the 51st Annie Award’s “Best TV/ Media – Preschool” in the field of 2023 animation! The series is a playful reimagining of the Hindu deities as little kids discovering their powers in a deity daycare. Full episodes, shorts, and music videos can all be found at the Ghee Happy Studio on YouTube. From all of us here in the Religious Studies Department, we wish you a warm congratulations, Deepak!
