The primary mission of the Padma Binani Foundation is to make a small and yet significant contribution to India's cultural preservation initiatives in view of today's contrarian influences. Modern day movements, in some cases, run contrary to what our country and its culture represent. We pledge to instill in he younger generation, the necessary strength and fortitude of character to counter these paradoxical influences so that tomorrow's leaders can emerge strong and can be fortified with a deep-rooted bond and a sense of belonging to their community. It is our endeavor to revitalize the rich cultural heritage and traditions of our society by allowing young children to think and dream, to act judiciously and to take decisions that are selfless and in the larger interest of the nation. This mission is being achieved by providing today's youth with unqualified access to purposeful and superior quality children's literature. The Foundation also aims to promote and support the publication of books on Indian philosophy, culture and heritage with strong social and philosophical content. The Foundation aspires to protect and preserve as a custodian the treasures of Indian classical, devotional and folk music through an active music publishing program.
