International Film Festival for disabled begins in Bhopal

Saturday December 18, 2010 07:53:24 PM, Pervez Bari,

Bhopal: The three-day International Film Festival centered on disabled persons began here on Friday evening at Bharat Bhavan, known as the Cultural centre of India. The film festival began with the screening of Hindi feature film “Taare Zamin Par”.

With efforts and encouragement the disabled person can not only achieve success like a normal person but also on several occasions they can excel others. This was the message of the three-day Internal Film Festival.

The film festival is being jointly organized by the Social Justice Department of the Madhya Pradesh Government and “Arushi” institute. It was inaugurated by Madhya Pradesh Water Resources & Environment Minister Jayant Malaiya.

While inaugurating the festival Malaiya said that the society should be sensitive towards the disabled. He said that the disabled deserve special attention and encouragement in the society. Films are strong medium for transmission of any message, he added.

"We should create such an environment in the society that each disabled person feels he is normal and able like others", he remarked.

Social Justice Department Secretary V. K. Batham said that the state government is very sensitive towards the disabled persons. New rehabilitation policy is being prepared soon so that each and every disabled person in the state can get the right to live in the society with dignity and ability.

On this occasion Commissioner Bhopal Division Manoj Shrivastava said that we should organize such programs centered on disabled persons who had, in spite of their disability and with their different creative activities, acquired a special and top position in the society.

Giving example Shrivastava said that there was a time when the head of the state of Ireland, Indonesia and the United States of America were victims of disability.

Earlier, Commissioner Social Justice Hiralal Trivedi explained the background of the film festival and said that the state government, with strong intention, is taking such steps with which and with cooperation from the society disability does not become a curse to the affected and they get a chance to prove their talents.

On this occasion Anil Mudgal of Arushi Institute also expressed his views. On second day of the film festival, December 18, Hindi feature film “Dosti” will be screened.
