(PMC) The short film which released just last month is a part of Red Dot Campaign (RDC) which was officially launched recently by PMC Commissioner Kunal Kumar Talking about the Red Dot Campaign Malti Gadgil from SWaCH said “We began the process of raising awareness about proper ways of sanitary waste disposal way back in 2008-09 by having extended discussions with our members who had first brought to light the indignity they felt from handling this kind of waste We have conducted several awareness drives in the past including a send-it-back event on March 8 when we packed used sanitary waste and sent it to corporates — Kimberley Clarke J&J and P&G to give them an inkling of what it felt like to have to deal with this waste on a daily basis This was to raise awareness about this issue” The RDC she said is to go a step further to ensure it comes to them packed in a particular way to save them from indignity and to safeguard the health of wastepickers This packing method was finalised through discussions and consensus from the membership of Kagad Kach Patra Kashtakari Panchayat (KKPKP) and SWaCH The wastepicker members felt the bags that the SWaCH manufactures are not reaching all due to its cost and hence proposed RDC a low/no cost option — rap and mark with a red dot “The campaign has just begun We plan to work with the newly-elected councilors and use PMC’s channels such as emails ads in theatres billboards etc to raise awareness” said Gadgil Though SWaCH has been taking efforts to raise awareness about proper disposal of sanitary waste since a long time Pai said the challenges lie in figuring out why is no response from people and apathy from the corporates SWaCH also released another short film last month which has already received more than a million views It features wastepickers’ children drawing attention to the need to wrap and mark with the red dot to keep their mothers safe Sharing how the organisation aims to reach more people Gadgil said “We plan to ensure all the newly-elected councilors endorse this system of sanitary waste disposal raise funds to ensure some billboards carry this information All our pushcarts will be painted with this message We have new pamphlets that need to be distributed” For all the latest Pune News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express Web Desk | New Delhi | Updated: January 22 2017 6:47 pm

producer Meenakshi Sagar has intensified With CINTAA (Cine and TV artists association) getting involved things have heated up Meenakshi who has been accused of not paying her actors Sara Afreen Khan Mouli Ganguly and Shiny Doshi has now slapped legal notices against Sara and CINTAA for defaming her Both parties though maintain she is blatantly lying Popular Zee TV show Jamai Raja that aired successfully for three years before wrapping up in March 2017 has found itself making headlines Time and again the actors of the show namely Sara Afreen Khan Shiny Doshi and Mouli Ganguly have accused producer Meenakshi Sagar of not paying their dues Recently Sara went public with the matter after the two cheques provided by Meenakshi bounced back She has also decided to file a case against the producer as a bounced cheque equals to a criminal offence The producer who also felt a big blow after CINTAA decided to stop actors from working with Meenakshi as part of its non-cooperation move till she clears all dues When indianexpresscom reached out to Meenakshi she said “Sara is lying She sent us a fraudulent notice after her cheques were cleared to get her two minutes of fame My lawyer has already sent her a notice and filed defamation charges according to which she has to pay me money for all the harassment Mouli is right about the delay but we have been clearing her dues so there was no need for all this This is complete extortion” “But I am really disappointed with the way CINTAA is dealing with the matter They have no legal right to impose a non-cooperation movement against me and my company How can they stop actors to work with me; it was a completely one-sided decision I have sent them a notice and waiting for a revert I have also reached out to IMPPA (Indian Motion Picture Producers’ Association) and they have promised to support me and sort out this issue” she added Meenakshi has shared proof of her notice to Sara and CINTAA with indianexpresscom Sara on her part accused Meenakshi of blatantly lying She told us “Why would I send her a notice if she had cleared my dues I have proof that both her cheques bounced (pics attached) and that is a criminal offence She has gone on record to say that she asked me not to encash the cheques and that she would transfer the amount Why will someone give cheques when they don’t want us to encash it Above all she stopped answering my calls and messages which prove that she wanted to get away I had no other option but to approach the CINTAA and speak to the media And now she calls me to threaten that she will never give me the money I feel pity for actors who work so hard and this is how producers treat them As for the defamation charges well I am ready to fight in the case for I know I am right” When we reached out to General Secretary CINTAA actor Sushant Singh he had no idea about the notice “I am getting to hear this from you Unless we receive a notice from competent authorities we can’t respond This is a classic case of ‘ulta chor kotwal ko daante’ In the last two years we have had 53 complaints against Meenakshi and Moti Sagar We don’t want any more members being victimised by these people hence our advisory to our members to not work with her” he said Anil Nagrath Secretary IMPPA told indianexpresscom “Meenakshi Sagar has been paying her actors; yes there’s a delay but she has never denied it Also IMPPA strictly condemns the non-cooperation movement that CINTAA has started Meenakshi has been honest about her business issues and we will provide all the support she requires As part of the industry we believe all issues can be sorted out with patience and time” We will keep an eye on where this battle heads next For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian

II) Director-Academics DAV CMC New Delhi was here in the city to inaugurate the two-day Hansraj Parliamentary Debate Championship in which 30 teams from schools across the Tricity took part “Instead of creating a controversy over detention/no detention all stakeholders in the education system should focus on framing the right policy keeping in mind the well-being of each child Two extremes are always wrong So we need to have from Class I measures to help the child develop the right educational base so that he never fails The educational stakeholders should focus more on the preventive measures ensuring that the education system is so strong that there is no need for such a policy” she said Debates on the education policy should not become political controversies Peshin said “Right now every school is giving knowledge to the students but many are still missing as how to ensure a student should apply the gained knowledge in the right manner” Sharing her views on the issue of subscribing to NCERT books at all CBSE-affiliated schools she said the issue raised by NCERT is right to some extent as there in no doubt that at many places publishers of private books are doing commercialisation and because of which the students are getting sub-standard reading material “We have to understand that whatever NCERT or CBSE is saying we at DAV are also saying the same thing We also say that commercialisation done by the private publisher is wrong but at the same time we also ensure that the students get dynamic set of books which are revised every year which is certainly missing in the case of the NCERT books” said Peshin For all the latest Chandigarh News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Sandeep Dwivedi | Published: November 30 2013 2:56 am Related
