Robin Raina Foundation will visit the NASDAQ MarketSite in New York City’s Times Square, to ring the closing bell and mark the premier of its documentary film, “DILLI”.
Produced by Black Ticket Films for the Robin Raina Foundation, the film presents the untold story of the under-privileged in Delhi. “Dilli” brings out a stark comparison of the rampant progress and development of the megalopolis vis-à-vis thousands who are left homeless while the whole city is modernized and revamped.
“Dilli” records and documents the evacuation of the thousands who in a matter of minutes lost their homes, and were left in a sea of rubble with nowhere to go and no ray of hope for a better tomorrow.
Directors Sushmit Ghosh and Rintu Thomas, eloquently weave this untold story of mass exodus of thousands who were bulldozed from their homes and transferred to the makeshift facade in the slums of Bawana, without water, shelter or drainage while the city was being given a facelift for the 2010 Commonwealth Games. RRF is presently carrying out the largest private charity home building initiative in the Indian sub-continent, in terms of building 6000 homes, free of cost, for the underprivileged slum dwellers of Delhi.
In honor of the occasion of the premier of the film “Dilli”, Robin Raina, Founder of the Robin Raina Foundation will preside over the NASDAQ Closing Bell.
