“FULL HOUSE,” that’s exactly what the Bose auditorium of physics department cried on 25th January as it held a special screening of the movie Swades: We The People organized by RT Education (Disha). It was an effort to rekindle the feeling of patriotism among the students on the eve of Republic Day.
With Gandhism as its main theme, the movie brought its viewers close to humanitarian essentials, questioning the existence of the Panchayat System in the villages, debating the needs of an education system, need for working in unison and the utter poverty, cultural disbeliefs of people.
Though the movie revolved around topics of great concern and with a running time of more than three hours, it kept the students glued to their seats. The screening was not just aimed to educate the students about their country’s problems, but to remind about a responsibility, to act and make a difference.
