Ideas abound from meeting with Hon. Steven Ciobo MP

The Kanetica team met today with Steven Ciobo, a local councillor and also member of the federal government of Australia, to seek backing and advice for the Kanetica film and other opportunities to build Australia-India relations.


Raju is planning the Kanetica film to be an Australian production to support the authenticity of the Kanetica story – which was started on the Gold Coast. Steven recommended a few avenues Kanetica can investigate for funding for the film.

Also discussed, was an opportunity that aligns with the New Colombo Plan, the federal government’s initiative aimed at strengthening people-to-people and institutional relationships through study, internships and transformational experiences.

“There is a great opportunity for home stays and documentaries for Australian film students,” says Raju, “Australian students will visit India and film documentaries or docu-dramas in collaboration with Inspire India.”

Inspire India has already done many of these exchanges with students in Europe.

Inspire India, of which Raju is Founder and Chairman, is a social organisation dedicated to the improvement of lives of the youth of India, with more than 23,000 members - the largest collective group of youth aged 15-20 in India.

Any involvement with Kanetica and Inspire India will expose any participating educational institution to many Indian communities, and also to Inspire India’s impressive patronage of entrepreneurs, politicians, and celebrities. Also, the credibility students will gain will be a huge entry point with various promotion agencies worldwide. Not to mention that the involvement of students in India will encourage Indian students to come and study in Australia.

The meeting ended with Steven Ciobo’s support for our ideas, and his offer to help where he can.
