DIY – a noble initiative based out of Gurugram, conducted a special screening of the bollywood blockbuster Super 30 for more than 450 underprivileged school children.
Gurugram is today one of the foremost cities of India. It has countless super-rich and affluent citizens residing in swanky posh villas and high-rises. However, in the midst of the modern marvels, stand small villages within the city. Here, the quality of life is in stark contrast. Unsurprisingly, it is here that the city’s poor, with no resources to avail the privileges, spend their lives in hardships and anonymity.
In the midst of this oddity, joining hands together are some of the affluent individuals. These stakeholders are collaborating and going out of their way to make a better tomorrow. They are impacting underprivileged kids and changing the future of the city. The combined efforts from the collaboration – DIY – is making a very real impact today.
Bringing a smile to 450 young children
As India celebrated its 73rd Independence Day, DIY made it special for 450 young children. The young guns from the poorer locality of Nathupur along with their teachers were endowed with the opportunity. Together, they watched hit Bollywood movie Super 30 on the biggest screen in India, through the combined effects of DIY.
450 underprivileged children watched Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30 in a swanky multiplex through combined efforts of DIY.
Watching Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30 on plush seats of the theatre was an experience they wouldn’t have dreamed. The sheer excitement of being at a theatre complex and mall was clearly visible on their faces.
The event saw children singing, hooting and dancing on the eve of the Independence Day. It was followed by the screening of the inspirational story of a simple mathematician Anand Kapoor with soft drinks and popcorn.
DIY for Children – Simple Idea, Massive Vision
DIY has created an amazing aura of understanding. Its a connection with these wonderful children who will make our future. The fantastic aura created by the collaboration led to these children on the quest of hope. After all, there is always hope for a better life as long as we are alive.
To add to this amazing phenomenon, the children watched and experienced an inspirational story. Super 30 starring Hrithik Roshan is an awe-inspiring movie for the children. The movie entails the story of Anand Kumar. A young academic who started an educational program for the underprivileged children, choosing 30 candidates each year.
Instead of a platform, DIY is a link between haves and have-nots, putting onus on the affluent to take charge and contribute.
The idea behind the initiative is simple, a no-cash transaction philosophy. Contributions are as much your heart allows. Instead of acting as a platform to contribute, DIY acts as a link between the haves and have-nots. It puts the onus on the affluent to take charge. The haves contribute their share in the development and progress of the poorer parts of the city.
The Influencers’ effort for the underprivileged
A personality very similar to that of Anand Kumar is behind the school from where the children belonged. With no means or resources for quality education, these children are taken care of by big-hearted individuals headed by the influencers involved and willing to make a change.
What started under a tree, is now a full-fledged CBSE-affiliated school with free education, books, uniforms and mid-day meals courtesy of such individuals.
Taking this amazing initiative forward is no easy task. However, the individual efforts of the people involved in DIY are doing an amazing job of expanding the educational efforts. Giving children a chance to be somebody in this world is perhaps the best virtue a person can put their efforts into. And we personally call on more residents of the city to join the noble cause of DIY. Take the onus of contributing our share to the progress of the city’s underprivileged.
The initiative was supported by The Palms Country Club (Madhumita), Miraj Cinema, Rasoi on Wheels (Manika Badhwar), Faithpoint Realtors (Pankaj Papneja), Rahul Batra (Musician), Three sixty degree (Vikash Gupta), C-Square Cafe (Supraneet), IT Logistics (Aditya Kumar), Mr.Drycleaner (Deepak Sachdeva), Professional Photography Inst.
