Film Club Screening Report - 31.08.2021

"What are you grateful for in your life?" This question broadened the horizons of students thinking during the Film Club Screening . The name of the video clipping was A Moving Story about Gratitude. Students' responses included the various people they were grateful to like their parents, siblings and their friends. They also suggested the practice of maintaining a diary called "The Happiness Journal". Students also suggested that being grateful multiplies the joy and makes one successful.

Do You Make A Difference was another video clipping that was screened and students brainstormed the idea of making other people happy even when one had one's own share of sufferings in life. Kindness, sharing and caring can make the giver and the receiver happy was summarized by a few students. Happiness is in little things that give us joy was reiterated by many students. Simplicity should be the core of life was suggested by some students too.

Film Club Screening Report - 28.08.2021

The fear to face the world outside is very much common among people. Lack of confidence is what has kept a lot of intelligent minds locked up in home. Overcome the fear; and you can conquer the world. The world has changed a lot. But still there are places which believe women deserve to stay at home. All we need is to break such stereotypes. Women are going places and there is nothing they cannot do. These are few things that every individual needs to keep in mind.

To sow the above-mentioned thoughts in the minds of students, 'Urugai Vitravarin Kathai', an animated short film was screened. Post screening, the students were engaged in a discussion. The students expressed their take on the moral of the film. Some of the points put forth by the students were:

  • Education is not the only valuable thing in the world. Learning a skill that can help you in life is more important than sticking to academics.
  • Always be sincere in what you do. Being sincere in what you do can take you places.
  • Working hard will help you reach great heights.
  • Self-confidence is the key to success.
  • To achieve something in life, it is necessary to trust ourselves.
  • Instead of grieving for what has happened, it is necessary to move forward and create a good life for ourselves.

Similar situations faced by the students were shared by the students in choosing the career (the influence of friends, relatives)
