Filmmaker Deepak Bada, who was present on the occasion, said – “Documentary films give an opportunity to try to bring about social change and share the sorrows and happiness of our people, and our country needs such youths who can bring reality to the fore. Come and keep your creations on that basis, when the society creates the works, then the art comes out of it, then the society prospers. He appealed to the students of journalism and mass communication to understand their community responsibility well. “First of all you have to understand that what are the responsibilities of our community or a common city. If you look at the preamble of the constitution, it is written in big bold letters, values like equality, justice, fraternity and freedom. One Responsible citizens consider these values to be equal to others. Being a citizen means protecting the community first and foremost. A filmmaker and journalist should first understand these values and behave in their personal life. Our work is the same. We should be imbued with values, only then we should find out what is the meaning of these values.
Scriptwriter Sunil Minz, who has worked with Ramdayal Munda, Meghnath, and Biju Toppo, addressed the students, talking about the documentary shown that featured PVTG groups whose daily earnings are 10 kg. 50 rupees on Dhibri, her international beauty business is worth billion dollars. We got political independence only in 1947, but the PVTG group of our country still did not get financial independence. Through the film, the backwardness of PVTG group has been highlighted, even in this century it is deprived of social and political justice. Our constitution has prescribed some rights for every marginalized people, PVTG group is still deprived of those rights and they are not able to raise their voice.
