After successfully making more than 50 documentaries, national award winner and a 1982 batch graduate of Jamia Millia Islami Delhi, ANWAR JAMAL has completed his first feature film Swaraj. Swaraj received a huge response from the audience when it was premiered at Delhi’s India Habitat Centre on the occasion of India’s 55th Independence Day. Produced by Professor Georage Mathew of the Institute of Social Sciences, it is Jamal’s socio-political and gender issues in retrospect with the story revolving around four women who are in search of water, one of the most basic needs of life. The film was shot on 35 mm with a budget of Rs 40 lakh, funded by the Institute of Social Sciences. The central idea of the film, according to Anwar, is that in such difficult circumstances when these women have to struggle hard for such an essential thing of life as water, instead of becoming rebels, their peaceful role in building society is the real swaraj or independence.

After 10 years of legal fight, TEHMINA KHATUN has won the battle to get admission to Gandhi Centenary B Ed College at Habra in North 24 Parganas district of West Bengal.

After running form sessions court to high court for ten years, the Kolkata High Court finally issued orders to the college authorities to give her admission to the college. Whether she gets a job or not after crossing the age limit, she calls it the triumph of reason and logic. It is to be noted that of the five governing body members of the college, three belonged to CPI (M) while two were members of RSS. They had however, unamnimouly agreed earlier to allow her admission on the condition that she wrote her name as Tehmina Mitra and her religion as Hinduism.

Ever since the death of her husband in 1993, SAJIDA, a help-based employee who is bringing up two daughters and a son, has become a living example of courage, honesty and devotion to duty. A 4th class employee at the office of Chief Public Relations Officer in Northern Railway, Sajida foiled the attempts of three Lashkar-e-Toiyaba militants who were trying to enter the office in January this year. On January 14, three militants in the guise of beggars tried to enter the office whom she stopped. When they tried to force their entry, Sajida clashed with them and raised an alarm which made them flee. Later when the three militants were arrested on January 16 and their photos were published in newspapers, then only it was known that these were the militants who had tried to force their entry but were not successful. A dutiful Sajida has been honoured by railway authorities for her courage and also by Sahara India which rewarded her by paying Rs 1100.
