Adds Robin Raina :
" My father, a secular man with communist leanings taught me about honesty and integrity: My mother inspired me by her courage and inner strength."
‘’My number one priority now is charity. My dream is to make charity fashionable and cool. I want people to experience the joy of giving.At present my focus is on the poor and the underprivileged. Homes for the homeless, education for underprivileged children and vocational education and skill development for the deprived are the areas I would like to concentrate on.’’
"Poverty knows no boundaries of race, religion, color or geographies. Poverty has become the single largest religion in the world today transcending all these boundaries. The developed world and each one of us who are fortunate in terms of wealth, need to make strong efforts to eradicate poverty from the world map."
“ Actually we are now working across the country with our projects spread across Mumbai, Delhi, J&K, UP and other parts of the country. It so happened that I decided to build homes in Bawana simply because this was emerging as the second largest slum area in the sub-continent and my dream is to convert Bawana into an area that has permanent homes for all. A new school with 329 children currently enrolled has been started in the slums of Noida in Sector- 53.”
“By the end of 2017, our intention is to invest at least $120 million in India. This investment will mostly be around R&D and acquisitions. I admit, some years back I wasn't really interested in investing here, I feel this is just the right time to invest. PM Modi's Digital India dream holds promise.”
