Bengaluru, Karnataka, November 13, 2014 /India PRwire/ -- 'One of the luckiest things that can happen to you in life is, I think, to have a happy childhood'. - Agatha Christie

Agreed. Childhood is those years of life which are cherished by most of us, but the story is not same in many cases. Akshaya Patra captures an overview on its latest film - 'The Possibilities.' This compelling film brings to fore the plight children go through when they are not presented with a childhood they deserve. The film will be released on the eve of Children's Day - 13th November, 2014.

'The Possibilities' portrays various struggles the child protagonist undergoes in order to survive. And how just one wholesome mid-day meal served every day at school can change his life.

A. R. Rahman and Viacom/MTV have kindly offered the famous soundtrack 'Naan Yen Piranthen' as background music for the film. The child's role is performed by Chetan, a Malayalam child artist. The film is expected to reach millions bringing their attention to possibilities in life of a child who is affected by hunger and how mid-day meals can change it.

"The Possibilities' relays a strong message about the importance of the mid-day programme. We believe the film will touch many hearts and bring nutritious food to more underserved children of our nation. We are immensely delighted and honoured as the legendary musician; Mr. A. R. Rahman has kindly agreed to donate his popular track 'Naan Yen...' as a background track enhancing the impact of the film. We are also grateful to Viacom/ MTV for helping us use the track for the benefit of children. The music complements the essence of the film and sends out a powerful message," said Chanchalapathi Dasa, Vice Chairman of The Akshaya Patra Foundation

The Akshaya Patra Foundation, an NGO headquartered in Bangalore, implements mid-day meal program in partnership with Government of India and various State Governments. The organisation is commended for its hygienically prepared nutritious food. This world largest (NGO run) mid-day meals program reach 1.4 million children from over 10,000 schools across 10 states in India.
