What is in a movie show? A lot of love.
For most of us, any movie is just another one in a long stream of not-so-significant events in our lives. Ever thought about kids who have next to no chance of seeing one?
Mr Gireesh Kumar who owns the Sree Padmanabha Theatre in Trivandrum is a special kind of person. For the last couple of years, 1% of profit from the theatre has come to Pallium India to fund children’s educational and other forms of support.
On 25 May 2011, there was a special free show for children of the Malayalam movie “Emmanuel” starring the superstar Mammootty, an ardent supporter of palliative care.
Children from families of patients whose education Pallium India supports were included in this year’s program. How many businessmen could think about the emotional needs of children and about how they also need some fun in their lives!
