Christmas, New Year and Sankranthi is a time of celebration, hope and laughter.
The sad truth, however, is that there are millions of children around the world who are deprived of this experience, not because they've been naughty, but because they come from underprivileged backgrounds and cannot afford to celebrate.
New Year comes and goes. But, that doesn't bring any change in their life. And these are underprivileged children. We want to make a little difference.
So we invited few underpriveled kids to Nalas Appakadai for a lunch.We want to give them an experience of India's Largest Appams Selling Restaurant 'Nalaas Aappakadai' The Chain of 15 Restaurants—12 in India and 3 in overseas-one each in London, Abhudabhi and Paris.
