An evening with Linda

S.R. Ashok Kumar

CHENNAI: It was a dream come true for the 50 little girls from the Tripura Girls Home.

The girls have lost their parents or their material possessions or have come from destitute conditions. All the 50 girls from the Tripura foundation were brought to the theatre to see a film along with actress Linda Arsenic.

Linda is a leading actress and model from New York and star dancer in the superhit movies "Sachein", "Kana Kandein" and "Bhadra" (Telugu). Her forthcoming films are "Thoti Jaya" and "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" (Hindi).

The kids were brought to see the Tamil film "Kana Kandein" at the Abirami Mega Mall and were also taken to the Taj Coramandel Hotel for an extravagant dinner.

Linda says she suffered a lot when she was a kid. "I remember my younger days. When I was young, I suffered a lot as I lost my father." However these children must be fortunate, she felt, as they have joined the Tripura Girls Home where they are provided with not only quality education but are also given nutritious food.

"My dream was to come to India and serve these children. When I got an opportunity to act in films, I waited to do something for the unfortunate children.

"I am very much moved by the love and support of the people here and also the affection that is showered on me by the Indian people. What best I can do I am doing for children."
