Documentary on Calligraphy by Jamia Students

Architecture student Ashhar Shams (B.Arch. IInd Year) at Jamia Millia Islamia (A central University in New Delhi), along with his friends, Rahil Malik and Mohd. Muhibuddin, have made a short 6-minute documentary on the art of Calligraphy, titled "Qalam — The Blunt Sword." This documentary was made for their faculty foundation day celebrations held last August.

For students who have not been trained in filmmaking, have done a splendid job. Most visuals in the documentary are from in and around Jamia Nagar, the area which gets its name from Jamia Millia Islamia. It is definitely worth a watch below:
