Renuka (Proposed)

Nobody is clear about the need for a dam in Renuka valley. Despite this, the people of the valley are being displaced without adequate compensation.

When I meet Puran Chand, an activist in the forefront of the anti-Renuka dam struggle, he dictates from the two much-thumbed pages of his notebook the several objections he has against the government’s plan for the rehabilitation of people displaced by the Renuka dam. Here is a man who has repeatedly raised his objections and perhaps tired of repeating it. And who can blame him?

Shimla celebrated World Water Day 2014 with students of Bishop Cotton and St. Thomas School who watched movies and participated in discussions on water conservation.

People learn and retain better through visual media. That's a fact. So what better way to bring attention to topics around the themes of water than by screening movies? That was the thought process behind organising an event on World Water Day with school students in Shimla. 

With a strength of 120 students from the Bishop Cotton School and St Thomas' School, India Water Portal aided by WWF-India's Shimla office screened films and facilitated interactions on the issues that the films raised.

Too many people, too much pollution and too little water – that's Delhi’s water supply situation in a nutshell.

Green pastures and meadows, tall trees, lakes, wells and the river…those are my memories of Delhi. It wasn’t too long ago that one woke up early to the sounds of lawns being watered, children running off to school and people walking in the parks. A flurry of activity but quite different from what it is today.

Photo Exhibit: Delhi's might, Renuka's plight - 26th Sept-2nd Oct


Venue: Art & Aesthetics Gallery, JNU Campus, New Delhi

JNU 

The School of Arts and Aesthetics, JNU is one of the few places in India that offers post-graduate degree courses in the theoretical and critical study of the cinematic, visual and performing arts. Moreover, it is the only place in India where these disciplines are offered in an integrated programme that allows students to understand the individual arts in a broader context of history, sociology, politics, semiotics, gender and cultural studies apart from being able to integrate the study of one art form with the other arts. The three streams of study offered at the school are Visual Studies, Theatre & Performance Studies and Cinema Studies.
