Actress-turned-author and interior designer Twinkle Khanna has come forward to support education for slum children here.

"Today when I came here I saw the children performing and the film. I just wanted to say that there is so much goodness in the world. We keep looking at the terrible and diabolical things when we open newspapers. But there is goodness in the world too and I saw a glimpse of that here today," Khanna said. 

The 43-year-old author, who is the wife of Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar, says she is grateful to be part of the campaign.

Talking about the association, Khanna said: "I'm planning to do a little bit of English reading. To me, a life that doesn't change things and touch people's lives is pretty meaningless. Rather I would like to spend a little bit of my time doing something to make their life better."

On the professional front, after the success of her first literary attempt, Khanna has launched her second book, titled The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad, a series of short stories.
