O n the occasion of Children’s Day, The Young Indians (YI) Kolkata Chapter, the Youth Wing of CII (Confederation of Indian Industry) initiated the Flight of Fantasy project where they flew down 14 children from two Kolkata-based NGO’s — Don Bosco Ashalayam and MSS — to Mumbai, India’s dream city.
The exhilarating journey for the children began with them boarding an aircraft for the very first time. This was followed by a city tour of Mumbai’s iconic spots, such as Marine Drive and and Gateway of India. The icing on the cake was to meet, interact and learn from their favourite movie stars — Ajay Devgn, Anupam Kher and Sonu Sood.
Actor Ajay Devgn lauded the efforts of the organisation. “I feel honoured to support team Young Indians Kolkata Chapter in this excellent endeavor. Education has the power to transform lives and Team YI has done a commendable job by advocating this,” said the Drishyam 2 star.
Anupam Kher inspired the children by saying: “Work hard and accomplish all of your goals. Failure is a situation, not a person. Never be afraid of failure because it is only an incident. A person who doesn’t give up can keep trying till they succeed. Believe in yourself, that’s when the magic happens.”
