Social Responsibility of Hollywood

London, Oct 10 (IANS) Hollywood couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have donated $340,000 for famine victims in Somalia.
Jolie -- who raises six children, Maddox, 10, Pax, seven, Zahara, six, Shiloh, five, and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne with Pitt -- recently thanked Somali refugees for helping to inspire her and make her a better parent.
'I'm so grateful - I don't want to cry - to the refugee families that I have the honour and privilege to spend the last years with. From them I've learned so much. I've learned to be a better person, a better mother. They've inspired me by showing me the unbreakable strength of the human spirit,' she said. reports that the couple gave the money through their Jolie-Pitt Foundation to the Humanitarian Initiative Just Relief Aid, which helps care for mothers who have been displaced from the war-torn nation.
Mohamed Dahir from the organisation said the money would allow for an expansion of the Badbaado camp in Mogadishu - the capital city of Somalia - which takes in around 300 women and children every day.
Around 29,000 children under the age of five reportedly died due to drought and famine in the country, and the United Nations claims 750,000 people are at risk of starving to death in the next few months.

Sharukh And His Business Ventures

I am Passionate About All My Business Ventures

- January 23, 2011 in Blog

‘The entertainment industry has made me what I am today’

I am Passionate About All My Business VenturesI have never truly felt that I am a businessman in true sense of that. You have a people like Mukesh Ambani who is a businessman; I am hardly in the same league. Being an entrepreneur is something that happened to me as my carrier in the film industry evolved over the years. When I started Red Chillies in 2002, it was with the dream of becoming a successful entrepreneur. Infact, the company was a progression, an offshoot if I may call it that, of my carrier in the Indian film industry. I wanted to contribute in the different and significant way to the entertainment industry, which has made me what I am today.

You know, there’s a feeling among many people that my enterprises are a means by which I am investing my money that I earn through my films, shows etc. But that is not true. Each of my business enterprises is my passion. They are all related to the entertainment industry in some way or the other and so I can relate to them too. This is biggest and most important motivator for any entrepreneur-to feel passionate about his/her enterprise.

So, my tip to today’s aspiring entrepreneurs would always start with telling them to be passionate about their enterprise.
Don’t jump in just to make money, though that is important too, of course. I believe that if you really feel strongly about your venture, it will pay off in the end and the money will flowing automatically. You should also strike while the iron’s hot. Don’t sit on your ideas if you feel it’s the right time to start a business around them. Sometimes, an idea clicks with your target audience because it was created at the right time. Delaying action may end up in delayed results too.

I also feel you should always think big… take small steps towards your target , but always set yourself a high goal, if you feel your idea’s worth it. When times are tough (as they are), do not think cost-cutting will solve your problems. Those who do that, perish faster in the long run instead, look for other measures to help you tide over the crisis. I would like to end by saying that entrepreneurs should always be honest in all their business dealings. I have always felt that honesty and transparency always pay off in the long run. Keep the faith.
