We recently got this e-mail from a friend of ours inviting us to come to a special screening of 2 very popular hindi movies in London, all to help raise funds for literacy projects of Pratham in India.
Formed in 1994, Pratham has provided pre-primary and primary education to over 1.5 million children so far and has an ambitious goal of having every Indian child in School...Regularly and Learning Well.
V & I are going for one of the movies and hope all the desi's in London that read this can join in too. It's a great way to revisit a hit of the past and contribute a small bit to helping a worthy cause.
On 12th February 2005 - Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge
On 19th February 2005 - Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
(both with English subtitles)
On both days:
Time - 1-5pm
Prince Charles Cinema, Leicester Square
Tickets - £12, (£10 concessions)
Available from the box office - 020 7494 3654 (daily from 1.30-8.30pm)
I hope that
1. you can attend both or at least one of the screenings to support this worthy cause, and
2. spread this information to more people who you think would be interested in the event
Be tempted: A selection of Indian snacks will be available for purchase at the venue
Be very tempted: Think about your own good fortune and the educational opportunities you have been privilaged to have, think about children in India who need this start in life and what a simple contribution this is.
See you there!
