The Clarion Call

A premise for 'sustainable coexistence'

Science and scientific attitude are the virtues that can provide solution to ills prevalent in the societies traditionally. Rationality and reason can make this world a beautiful place not just for us, but also for the entire diversity on this planet. Imbibing sustainability in our thoughts and actions may be necessary for the sustenance of us all together; the ecology and environment, the planet, the humanity and at the same time making this planet a beautiful place for everyone, in the North or the South; in cities or rural heartlands; in developed or developing world.

Creative Workshop

The creative urge is driven by passion for originality and excellence. Creativity is not allowed to take back seat while you yearn for meaningfulness. Socially relevant and educative films pose that challenge that you always crave for. It is not just for the sake of contribution but for fulfilment of a purpose. A community radio may be another expression to the creativity.                    Click for Details
