{i} Dr.Babasaheb Ambedkar Film Screening <at> SCM on 13 April

01/04/2011

 

Dear Concerned Authorities,                                                                                                        

 

Greetings from Student Christian Movement of India!

 

Dr.Ambedkar also known as Babasaheb, was an Indian jurist, political leader, Buddhist activist, philosopher, thinker, anthropologist, historian, orator, prolific writer, economist, scholar, editor, revolutionary and a revivalist for Buddhism in India. He was also the chief architect of the Indian Constitution.

In order to celebrate Dr.Ambedkar life and his contribution to the egalitarian society, Student Christian Movement of India would like to screen the ground breaking film Dr. Babasaheb AMBEDKAR directed by Jabbar Patel.

This is done in partnership with Samvada, SICHREM, Dalit Bahujan Movement, NCCI – Commission on Dalit, Tribals & Adivasis, St. Joseph’s College (Autonomous) – Social Work Department and Dr.Ambedkar Philosophy Propagation Foundation. You are cordially invited to take part in this film festival. Please pass on this message to students and youth. Looking forward!

 

In solidarity

Film                 Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar.                                            Director          Jabbar patel

Music              Amar Haldipur                                                              Duration          175 Min

 

Synopsis: A portrait of the one of our greatest social reformer of our times - Ambedkar. The film documents the period between 1901 and 1956. The film delves more into Ambedkar's life as a reformer, while his personal life is sort of skimmed over. Ambedkar who is the first graduate of his community, the untouchables, is an unassuming young man. All he is concerned about, even when he goes to New York for further studies is that he's here to study, not get involved in political issues and rallies. His exchanges with Afro-Americans, his teachers who support Human Rights and the inclusion of the 14th Amendment in the US Constitution granting rights to African-Americans however rouse the reformer in him. While India is fighting against the British rule on the political level spear-headed by Mahatma Gandhi, Ambedkar wages a social battle against the Upper Caste Hindus. Ambedkar and Gandhi clash in their ideologies. Yet Gandhi admires Ambedkar and it is on his insistence that Ambedkar is made the first Law Minister in Prime Minister, Nehru's rule. The film ends on the note of salvation - where Ambedkar gives millions of untouchables an alternate religion where they find dignity, compassion and equality. He publicly renounces Hinduism and adopts Buddhism. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Re: {i} Vacancy for Program Officer/Coordinator with UWBe [1 Attachment]

Hi Manish

Your mail mentions expertise required in MS Excel, word and powerpoint. These are proprietary software applications - which are forbidden to being shared or modified by anyone other than the vendor.  On the other hand there are 'public software' alternatives to MS Office - such as OpenOffice or LibreOffice. OpenOffice being public software is freely shareable (no license fees) and its philosophy is aligned to that of 'public institutions' - of sharing resources for the common good.

Software as an 'intangible' resource is 'non rivalrous' meaning it can be shared without any reduction in its availability for others. Only by using publicly owned software resources, can we ensure its access to all. All the proprietary software applications used in NGOs have public software alternatives that are technically comparable (see http://public-software.in/taxonomy/term/38/all for public software alternatives to popular proprietary applications).

regards,
Guru

see http://public-software.in/Posters for some catchy principles on why we should all adopt and promote public software ....

{i} Please sign petition addressed to Shri Manmohan Singh Jee, not to approve Task Force Report on SCSP and TSP

Dear Friends 


Please sign this petitionhttp://www.ipetitions.com/petition/nationaldalitforum/

You may aware that the planning commission appointed a Task force to study the implementation of Scheduled Castes Sub Plan and Tribal Sub Plan and give recommendations. Subsequently, the Task Force submitted its first report on 25 November 2010. These recommendations will legitimize the actions of non allocation of funds to SCSP and TSP by  ministries / departments.

The report excludes 40 Ministries / Departments in the case of Scheduled caste and 43 in the case of Scheduled Tribes from making any efforts for their development

Responsibilities of 10 Ministries / Departments will be lessened

Only 9 Ministries / Departments will continue the status quo

Only responsibilities of 6 Ministries / Departments will be enhanced

They are totally against to the principles of Scheduled Castes Sub Plan and Tribal Sub Plan as envisioned by Mrs. Indira Gandhi Jee.

Accounting of Scheduled Castes Sub Plan and Tribal Sub Plan for National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme and Indira Aawaaz Yojana etc to the extent of SCs and STs is against the concept, as is was in addition to the general welfare / developmental schemes by the government.

They ultimately legitimizes the debate of indivisibility of funds by ministries / departments there by non allocation of funds under Scheduled Castes Sub Plan and Tribal Sub Plan
