NGO founded by actor Rahul Bose today announced “The Idea of India’ – an auction of iconic memorabilia donated by 16 legendary Indians. Rahul Bose says, “The founding idea of free India was that ours would be a country where every citizen mattered, every Indian would be cherished by the state regardless of class, caste or religion. It is this idea that these sixteen Indians have actively upheld all their lives. In support of that very idea these Indians have not just donated their memorabilia, some have donated a part of their history, others a part of their best work, some a piece of their greatest joy, others their most prized memory – all with unthinking selflessness and love. Thank you for this, thank you for living The Idea of India.
We are also extremely happy to have Standard Chartered Bank on board with us as partners. Standard Chartered has an enviable history of philanthropy long before it became fashionable for corporations to be philanthropic. Our gratitude and a warm welcome to them to ‘The Idea of India!”
