New Delhi, Nov 8: Where, the gorgeous Bollywood Diva, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan recently celebrated her 44th birthday on November 1, she made a decision of sponsoring a free meal for 1000 underprivileged children under the Annamrita Midday Meal Scheme of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), according to the reports.
ISKCON head Radhanath Swami Maharaj stated the Annamrita Foundation’s midday meal scheme was launched in 2004 from a small room with 900 meals and has now grown to over 1.20 million children in seven states, trough 20 hi-tech ISO certified kitchens.
“He then instructed all his devotees that no child within a 10-mile radius of the ISKCON Temple should go hungry. Since then, the temple has been distributing Krishna Prasad in the form of ‘khichdi’ since the past 13 years to poor people in the vicinity and lakhs more through the Annamrita Foundation projects. The ‘Annamrita Scheme’ envisages that no child should be deprived of education due to the lack of healthy wholesome meals. Schools have reported an increase in attendance and performance levels where the Annamrita meals are being served,” Radhanath Swami said.
On the work front, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is currently shooting for her upcoming movie 'Fanney Khan'.
