Harivansh Rai Bachchan Memorial Trust and Urja Foundation have come together in the endeavour to provide solar-powered lights to small villages hitherto deprived of electricity.
"There is a trust in my father's name - Harivansh Rai Bachchan Trust - and whatever money we collect, we give it to some charitable cause. Urja Foundation will provide electricity to 3,000 houses in villages," Big B told reporters.
"This is just a beginning. We will start this by November. The electricity will be provided through solar energy free of cost to small villages," he said.
