Ravishing Raveena Tandon, otherwise an altruistic social-worker, whose passion is child-welfare will add yet another feather to her career crown, that of a ‘book author’.
Confirming this new literary dimension, the star-actress in a cryptic mode, said “My book which I will soon be focusing on, is neither a biography nor is it fiction.” Since Children’s Day is being observed today, Raveena strolls into a flashback recalling how she would be watching symbolic cultural shows on ‘C-Day.’ “We would be more excited because we would have a holiday dedicated to us little kids, on Chacha Nehru’s birth anniversary,” she chuckles.
Today’s super-confident kids are fortunate that they are tech-savvy right from a very tender age, she feels. The outspoken Tandon, has been judging an educational initiative, by the Seven Seas Academy. “A nationwide contest hunt for India’s young masterminds, to promote the prime importance of health supplements for vital brain development among children. It’s so heartening that two winners are being sponsored for an educational trip to ‘NASA’,” says the ‘mast-mast’ girl gleefully. “Even when I was going thru a major personal crisis, decades ago, I used to often spend quality time with kids at an orphanage home. It was unconditional love that they would always give me in return,” insists Raveena who had adopted two young girls (actually nieces) whose parents hadpassed away, when they were young. Currently, the evergreen actress is “waiting for the release of the hard-hitting, bold movie ‘Maatr-The Mother’ directed by Ashtar Sayyed, which has violence against women as its theme”.
