Film fest on Disability Issues

With Jayshree Periwal, Kiran Mehra Kerpelmen, Margaret Alva  and Satish Kapoor
Jaipur, April 22, 2013: Today evening I'll fly back to Kolkata. In the morning I went to the Step By Step International School at Mahapura where Prabha Khaitan Foundation, in association with the United Nations Information Centre, hosted the screening of award winning films on `Disability Issues' presented by the We Care Film Fest and Brotherhood.
With Her Excellency Governor of Rajasthan, Margaret Alva
Her Excellency Smt Margaret Alva, Honble Governor of Rajasthan, was the Chief Guest of the event. This unique film festival - advocating the change of attitudes - has been an eye opener for so many people across the country, motivating them to stand up for a cause.
With Kiran Mehra Kerpelman and her daughter
On the occasion 21 short films were screened at the Step by Step International School. The Director of UNIC (India and Bhutan), Ms Kiran Mehra Kerpelman was present at the inaugural function. The festival has travelled to 98 venues across India drawing on an average 300 viewers per venue.
The Director of Step by Step International School, Ms Jayshree Periwal and the man behind the ‘We Care Film Fest’, Mr Satish Kapoor, were also present at the inaugural function. The Governor saw few of the films screened and appreciated the filmmakers' efforts. The special children from Umang and Disha performed a song and dance performance in the presence of students from other.
With Aruna Singh, Sanjana and Mita Kapur
Last evening's dinner at the ITC Rajputana was also well attended and I think by this visit of the Director of UNIC and other officials, new doors of activities and programmes have opened up for UNIC in Rajasthan.
I will not be able to attend the FICCI Flo event this evening where Deepti Naval is the Chief Guest.
