Standing for Justice with FTII

Recent appointment by the Information and Broadcasting Ministry of Mr. Chauhan has come under a lot of criticism by film industry and students community. A person who has an official affiliation with the ruling party and who lacks the vision and stature of the past chairpersons in film-making, has put a question mark on the process of selection for the post earlier held by eminent people like Girish Karnad, Shyam Benegal and Adoor Gopal Krishnan.

SIO Mumbai extended its support to the Film and Television Institute of India. SIO Mumbai took to the streets with the FTII students and other fine arts graduates at The Carter Road Amphitheater.

A crowd of about 250 people young and old, male and female thronged the amphitheater to protest against the government's proposal to appoint Gajendra Chauhan as the chairman of the prestigious institute. As a matter of fact all previous chairmen have always been active contributors in this field, which unfortunately Mr. Chauhan isn't.

The largely peaceful protest saw the activist as they marched chanting slogans on the sea face promenade.

Members of SIO Mumbai also met Ms. Arunima Sharma the lead organiser of the event, handed over SIO Intro. folders & pledged full support for the cause.

Your Pearls of Wisdom

Success breeds success


There was a farmer who grew superior quality, award-winning corn in his farm. Each year, he entered his corn in the state fair where it won honors & prizes.


One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew his corn. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors.


"How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with
yours each year?" The reporter asked. "Why brother"


'' The farmer replied, "Didn't you know? The wind picks up pollen grains from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field.


If my neighbors grow inferior, sub-standard & poor quality corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I have to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors to grow good corns."


The farmer gave a superb insight into the connectedness of life. His corn cannot improve unless his neighbors' corn also improves. So it is in the other dimensions and areas of life!
Those who choose to be in harmony must help their neighbors and colleagues to be at peace.



Those who choose to live well must help others live well. The value of a life is measured by the lives it touches...


Success does not happen in isolation; it is most often a participatory and collective process. So share the good practices, ideas and new knowledge with your family, friends, team members and neighbors & all.
