Say No to sexual violence against women

NEW DELHI: Sexual violence against women poses no less threat to the Indian culture and civilization these days. A steep rise in these cases has made the capital city of Delhi a darkening den of rapists which requires mass awareness to firmly deal with the menace. This was more or less of what a short film features drawing huge applause among the Delhities who have come to catch a glimpse of it. 

The story centering around a case of sexual violence where a youth raped a woman inside her residence. But a prompt initiative by the victim and her daughter forced the police to act quickly which was why, the culprit was caught. 

Tilu Das, an undergraduate student in the north eastern city of Guwahati said,  “Really relevant. This is, simply a huge message to the people not only living in Delhi but the entire nation should listen it. Only because of prompt initiative by Pragya, who happens to the victim’s daughter, Vijay, the culprit was captured by police,” said Sanjay Kakoti, student leader based in the capital. 

“Need of the hour is mass alertness to firmly deal with these cases. Alertness helps the police to track the criminals since they have a set of technology for it. Without peoples’ cooperation police alone can’t achieve thing,” said . 

Ajmir Singh, a social activist said,”the film, beyond doubt, has a noble intention. But it is silent on how to help the capital get rid of these incident: mass awareness is not the sole factor. Need of the hour is a slew of long term measure to change the mindset of a section of the people where consumerism reigns. Anyhow, the venture, in fact, is noble with sharp concept and crisp scripting.”

Satya Prasad Sabherwal, who owns the TVNF(Television News and Features) said,”I and TVNF started producing short films on various social issues which have been corroding the foundations of Indian society for a very very long time. I was keen to make a film on the issue of rape for a long time and had decided its title and script some two years back. But got the guts and time now. I would request all to watch Sanak and many other short films on TVNF channel on youtube.”

Will NRC help deport immigrants?

3 Jan 2018 - 4:44pm | AT News

GUWAHATI: Four days after the Registrar General of India published the first NRC draft, Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Wednesday said his government would never discriminate any body in the state. In a statement released in Guwahati, the chief minister said the Centre would devise a humane mechanism for those left in the NRC. 

He said, "the government is working reasonably as per the Supreme Court order. Those who will be found to be illegal immigrants after the final list will also be treated humanely. A mechanism has to be evolved by the central government on what to do with them.” His statement assumes significance amid the stepped up efforts to grant citizenship to the Hindu illegal settlers in the state triggering a massive protest. The first draft released on December 31 midnight has names of 1.9 crore people out of the 3.29 crore applicants.
