Rahul Bose and Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson shared some cordial and warm moments at the Oxfam event in New York.

Rahul was glad that Scarlett used her celebrity status for a good cause for the benefit of children all over the world. ''It is easy to just lend your name to a cause and forget about it. The real test to actually execute your presence and see that the funds actually used for that particular cause. I admire Scarlett and several other celebrites for that,'' Rahul said.

Both celebrities are ambassadors of Oxfam to raise funds for Oxfam's Health and Education for all campaign. A short film shot by Rahul Bose was screened at the event. ''The short film is about street kids and a very factual projection of the children who do not have access to health and education in India,'' said Rahul.

Rahul added, ''India has around 836 million poor people and the worst maternal and infant mortality rates, plus the largest number of people without any access to education,'' Bose said.

Scarlett and he will urge governments to allocate an increased proportion of their annual budget to provide essential services to the people. ''Rich countries should also support poor nations with an increased and long–term aid commitment targeting health and education sectors.''
