Breaking The Culture Of Silence: It’s Now or Never

Posted on 15 February 2013 by BMMBoxer

By Smriti Parikh, SYBMM, Sophia College

We have a right to remain silent. But should we?


Being the largest girls’ college of Mumbai, Sophia College for Women raised their voice against rape and violence against women on the 3rd of January 2013.

The initiative was started as a means of finding solutions to curb violence and find punitive measures for the same. The first meeting saw more than 200 students huddled up in the canteen extension, listening intently and raising angered opinions. They talked about death penalties and castrations. They said that they had seen enough and now no more. But some said that situations like these cannot be dealt with anger. There is a need to think rationally as to how to cut the roots of the evil.

As more and more girls started coming up with ideas, the Student Body President, Shruti Parmar realized that the initiative has the scope of getting bigger.

Their next step was to come up with a draft resolution and send it to the Justice Verma Commission. An executive board was set up and a five member body deliberated over options and came up with pointers that were genuine and applicable in the real scenario. These pointers were then sent to law students of other colleges who scanned for legal conflicts and helped and supported us in the cause. On the 14th of January, the five girls proudly submitted their resolution to the Justice Verma Commission.

But the story wasn’t over yet. The college had decided to make this a permanent cause; not to ever submerge themselves into silence. Hence, multiple meetings were held in different classrooms with more and more people joining the force. Soon enough, there was a need to bring innovation and newness in the meetings.

On 28th of January, the leaders of different colleges congregated and decided to set up a grievance cell for college going girls as the first step. A meeting with Gamdevi police was set up and 10 girls from the college were asked to talk to him and suggest ways of improvement.

However, the enthusiasts and activists are still not satisfied. Breaking the culture of silence became a culture in itself in Sophia’s. Students roamed around wearing badges and holding placards. Even teachers felt the need to join their league.

As of today, the Student Body President says that there is a need for this movement to stay active forever. Not to come into action when another incident happens, not when one of us is affected, but now. And till this problem has been completely wiped off from the face of this society, we cannot afford to let it go into dormancy.

With hundreds of ideas still pouring in from students, Breaking the Culture of Silence has seen a tremendous participation and it hopes to see more in the coming years.

To join this cause and come up with new ideas please send an email to smritiparikh@gmail.com

Mr. Hussain Zaidi On Crime Reporting & Journalism; CollegeEvents (VG Vaze College)

Posted on 06 February 2013 by BMMBoxer

By Sweta Bhanushali, SYBMM, VG Vaze College

Mr. Hussain Zaidi

Mr. Hussain Zaidi

On 5th of December, 2012 Mr. S. Hussain Zaidi visited VG Vaze College (Mulund) to interact with the students. As we all know, Mr. Hussain Zaidi is a veteran crime reporter and author; he has covered the Mumbai mafia for nearly two decades. He has worked earlier with newspapers like Mid-Day, Mumbai Mirror, Indian Express and now is the resident Editor of Asian Age/ Deccan Chronicle in Mumbai. He has written highly acclaimed books like Black Friday (based on the 1993 blasts in Mumbai), Mafia Queens Of Mumbai (based on the female gangsters in Mumbai) and Dongri to Dubai (based on the underworld don Dawood Ibrahim).

Before actually seeing him, I was of the impression that Mr. Zaidi would not be willing to answer all questions or talk about himself but I am happy to say he proved me wrong. As he entered the college auditorium, I realized Mr. Zaidi is a thorough professional. Once on the stage, he gave a short and precise introduction of himself. He then proceeded to talk to us in a straight forward and polite manner. He shared experiences of his first job and was candid enough to talk about how he met the love of his life! The latter information was received amidst cheers from the crowd.

Dongri to Dubai

Dongri to Dubai

Mr. Zaidi spoke to the students present about the journalistic field of crime reporting. Many students asked him if crime reporting is an exciting and a glamorous field to work in, to which he answered, “Yes, the field is adventurous but devoid of glamour. We have to work hard to cover crime and sometimes we do face problems – not only professional but also personal.”

He confessed that he has not only faced life threatening situations, but has also been freely criticized for portraying his religion in a ‘particular’ manner. Mr. Zaidi, who is proud of his religion, counters this criticism and believes that as a journalist it is his duty to put forward the truth and facts.

No matter the time constraints, Mr. Zaidi answered all questions thrown at him. He also obliged students with autographs and clicked a photo or two too. We, at VG Vaze College, thoroughly enjoyed our interaction with him and do we hope we get to meet many a prominent personalities like him.

Of Fests & BMM Students; Cortokino Unleased

Posted on 30 January 2013 by BMMBoxer

– Aratrika Das, BMMBox Ambassador, Thakur College of Science and Commerce.

Hello everyone!

For all of you who don’t know it yet, Cortokino is an international short film festival, organised by the department of mass media, Thakur College of Science and Commerce.

When the responsibility of organising this fest fell on us, we decided to focus on a couple of things. First, we wanted to move away from the clichéd film festivals and host only such events that are interesting and challenging for participating students and aspiring film makers. Second, we wanted to understand our calibre as a team, so that we would be able to give our best to a fest that quite obviously meant the world to us.

Cortokino, 2013 had 8 different events. Namely, the Short Film Event, Sir Chaplin Says, Documentary Event, Point of View, An Advertisement to Make, Editor’s Cut, Stop Motion and the Silent Film event. Apart from the events, we also organised  ‘Media’s Got Talent’; an event designed especially for mass media students to showcase their talents.

The two days of the fest were filled with chaos, excitement and fun! Right from the wonderful response and the amazing, raw talent that was witnessed by all to Remo D’Souza flaunting his unmatchable moves with the students! The fest was one cool affair. I think, team Cortokino did the right thing by organising a pure film festival; a platform that showered attention and encouragement on future directors, actors or editors was needed. And I feel Cortokino fulfilled this duty with aplomb.

While the winner was one, I have to say that every movie we received was of top-notch quality. The contingents out did themselves and the students simply amazed us with their talent. As the organising team, it was overwhelming to have received  love and support from various colleges within the city and outside. As a mass media student, being a part of such a fest was a holistic learning process that my fellow batch-mates and I will never forget.

I promise, we will be back next year with the same amount of zeal and love for our work and we will present all you movie junkies with just the platform you need. Till then, keep watching ‘em movies.
