Aamir Khan was in Delhi recently to spend some time with eight children affected by the Gujarat riots. These children are now studying in the capital, post the traumatic experience of the riots. The meeting was set up by Act Now for Harmony and Democracy (ANHAD), an organization with which the actor is actively involved. He has been giving monetary support to many children who lost a year of education as a result of the riots.
In the beginning the kids were feeling very shy to speak up. However, Aamir did give them some valuable advice. He told them that such bad incidents in life make people stronger. These kids too should excel in their studies and put up a fight against their circumstances.
After the meeting, he spoke to the media about issues that concern the nation. He said that a lot of natural calamities and riots have happened in our country. However, it is up to the citizens to take a stand and do something. He said that he supported these kids irrespective of their religion, caste and status. Ultimately, we all are Indians and have to help each other.
