“I’m personally inspired by a famous quote from our former president of India Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam which reads ‘You have to dream before your dreams can come true’. His quotes and lectures encouraged and inspired the youth to work hard and achieve their dreams” said Ram Sukumar, Co-founder and CEO of Indium Software, during the launch. Ram added “At Indium, we believe that dreams and aspirations form the first step towards building a successful future. With the launch of “Kanaa” Indium volunteers aim to equip children across government schools with best-in-class training to dream big, gain control over their minds, understand their strengths and be persistent and motivated to achieve it.”

Speaking at the event, actor & director Samuthirakani said “It brings me great joy that Indium is working towards securing the future of our country by enabling children to achieve their dreams and aspirations. I strongly believe that workshops like Kanaa will be instrumental in creating a positive impact in the lives of these children.
