would return to classes but “continue to protest and resist the current appointments in whatever peaceful and non-violent form we are able to” Do you think returning national awards has reached an alarming proportion http://s.tco/vEjoMXZjLI The Indian Express (@IndianExpress) October 29 2015 Students had gone on an indefinite strike on June 12 following the appointment of television actor and BJP member Gajendra Chauhan as president of the FTII Society and chairman of its Governing Council They also expressed discontent over four other “political” appointees who they alleged lacked the artistic and cinematic expertise to secure a place in the FTII Society Watch Video:Discussing The Widening Of The Protest Against ‘Intolerance’ Full text of the filmmakers’ letter to President and Prime Minister The filmmakers who have decided to return their National Awards are Dibakar Banerjee Anand Patwardhan Paresh Kamdar Nishtha Jain Kirti Nakhwa Harshavardhan Kulkarni Hari Nair Rakesh Sharma Indraneel Lahiri and Lipika Singh Darai Earlier in Pune two FTII alumni Pratik Vatsa and Vikrant Pawar made a similar announcement At a press conference in Mumbai the filmmakers read out a joint statement and said they had decided to join protesting writers and Sahitya Akademi winners who had returned their awards Some of them also brought their National Award medals with them “It has become imperative that we see the government’s stonewalling of students’ protest in a context The Information and Broadcast Ministry has appointed people with a narrow vision in the institutions under them FTII Children’s Film Society and CBFC are examples that the film fraternity has objected to” read the letter addressed to the Prime Minister and the President Read Also:FTII issue is not connected to Bollywood: Dibakar Banerjee “Meanwhile we have watched the murders of rationalists and writers like Dr Narendra Dabholkar Govind Pansare and M M Kalburgi with dismay These are clearly not random acts of violence People are being murdered for their beliefs and opinions There seems to be no attempt to unravel the larger picture and bring to book extremist groups that believe in ruthless violence to eliminate those who hold a counter view from theirs There has been no official condemnation of these groups and we question this silence” it read Jain said her award has become a daily reminder of the way the state looks at filmmakers Filmmakers announce their decision to return National Awards in Mumbai on Wednesday (Express Photo by: Dilip Kagda) Asked about the silence from Bollywood on the issue Banerjee said the issue isn’t about Bollywood but about education “When engineering students protest do we expect the companies that employ engineers to unite behind those students” he said “As common citizens who don’t believe in armed struggle; this is our weapon of protest” said Patwardhan The FTII strike had forced the government to open a channel of dialogue with the protesters but despite holding as many as eight meetings they failed to arrive at a mutually agreeable solution Sources from the students’ group said the latest meeting with Minister of State for I&B Rajyavardhan Rathore in New Delhi on October 20 convinced them that the negotiations would be futile This added to the anxiety among a section of students who were growing impatient with the strike and were eager to return to classes it is learnt A lot of them felt the strike “would never end” as the government seemed to be in no hurry to resolve the issue It was this pressure that most likely triggered the sudden withdrawal of the strike sources said On Wednesday students blamed the government representatives and the I&B Ministry saying “they didn’t have the mandate” to discuss the contentious appointments “We must mention that until today despite eight to nine meetings no tangible solution to resolve the crisis has really been given to us We were repeatedly told by Secretary-level officials and even by MoS Rathore that they did not have the mandate to remove contentious people from the FTII Society Even when our representatives were whisked away to the capital and given assurances by the honourable Minister I&B Arun Jaitley and MoS Rathore no concrete solutions were provided They only gave us signals and even told that our ‘politicisation’ had led to the withdrawal of any such solutions” said Vikas Urs a final year Cinematography student “We’ve reached this decision after internal deliberations… From tomorrow we will return to classes but will continue to protest and resist the current appointments in whatever peaceful and non-violent form we are able to The lessons we have learnt will reflect in the films we will make” said Harishankar Nachimuthu president of the Students’ Association who also urged filmmakers and artists to “take the fight forward” Students also shot off a letter to Rathore saying they would not participate in any further talks with the ministry unless it met their demand of removing the contentious appointees “Although Rathore had conveyed he would hold another meeting with us we would not attend any further meeting unless our core demands are met We would continue with passive resistance till then” said Rakesh Shukla a final year Film Direction student “Passive resistance” students said would involve petitioning the court to demand a transparent system of appointments at the institute in the future They also said they would try to corner the government and especially the I&B Ministry at the upcoming International Film Festival of India to be held in Goa by trying to persuade participants to boycott it For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by

statesman of prime ministerial stature we see moving out of the presidential palace For Pranabda has all it takes to make a historic head of government But Destiny which as Omar Khayyam wisely said “With men for pieces plays/Hither and thither moves/And mates and slays/ Then one by one back in the closet lays” Unless a miracle happens (and they sometimes do in politics) we are never going to see Pranab Mukherjee in Race Course Road There is the distant example of C Rajagopalachari who moved from the Governor-Generalship of India to Government House in Calcutta before becoming Union Home Minister and then Chief Minister of Madras I once teased the departing Rashtrapatiji with this example but he is a man too embedded in propriety too strong a believer in what is proper to even countenance such an idea Yet it is probably the Indian National Congress that is the biggest gainer from this presidential election For freed of his constitutional constraints a retired Pranabda could well become the Congress party’s principal counselor and help guide it back from its present nadir closer to the zenith Only time will reveal his inclinations in this regard but the party would do well to listen to his advice (were he to give it) because his has been the wisest voice in the party for decades We were deprived of it at a time when we were sorely in need of it because the minute he became president his sense of duty detached him from any hint of partisan politics He was faithful to the only book he knew which was the Constitution He studied and restudied it; went into each precedent many of which he carried in his prodigious memory; conscientiously consulted all he needed to consult; and came to conclusions that were apt and would stand the test of history He did not depart an iota from his constitutionally decreed role even when it must have been an enormous strain to preside over a nation being led astray from its fundamental values and civilisational attributes That is why at one passing stage when it looked as if the ruling alliance might fall short of the required majority a possible consensus candidate to win an uncontested election might have been Pranab Mukherjee himself Certainly the Modi government could not have faulted him for any deviation from his oath of office In the last three years there must have been many occasions when the Congressman in Mukherjee must have been crying out to be released from his constitutional bonds but that unbending adherence to the limits of his constitutional office kept his inward urges under strict control while his thorough knowledge of the moral authority of his office was fully utilised to air his concerns He knew the subtle art of hinting at these concerns but stating them in such a manner as to elude those trying to search for a partisan tilt to his remarks They never found any For he indefatigably held to the ethic of constitutional propriety in all his words and actions Perhaps his moment of departure is also for him a moment of liberation It is most unlikely that he will play any overt role in party politics but Congressmen and women hope even pray that they will never be missing a gentle quiet word from him to the high command to put the party and therefore the nation on the right path What gave Mukherjee his stature in the Congress despite the many storms and setbacks he encountered The first point to note is that he did not start as a Congressman His initial party of choice was the Bangla Congress a regional outfit floated by Ajoy Ghosh after the “Syndicate” was routed by the “Indicate” But when he was not yet quite 35 Indira Gandhi spotted immense potential in this new recruit to the Rajya Sabha who remained glued to his last-row seat through long hours of debate and discussion when many of his colleagues would find relief in drinking endless cups of coffee in Central Hall He soon became a permanent fixture at her side especially after she won the historic “garibi hatao” election of March 1971 with an overwhelming two-thirds majority Over the next six years including the period of the Emergency Mukherjee spiraled to the top becoming finance minister when he was barely in his forties That perhaps was his undoing For when Indiraji was assassinated he was suspected of harbouring excessive ambitions and found himself turfed out of office and even out of the party He wandered in the political wilderness even attempting to found his own party — but eventually how he came back and why he had been sent out or sent himself out is a mystery that will be unravelled only when he gets to subsequent volumes of his autobiography However that may be by the time Rajiv Gandhi found himself in the Opposition Pranab Mukherjee had returned — to a humble cubicle in the AICC dealing with economic issues Once back however it took him no time at all to access the inner circle Then PV Narasimha Rao became PM and Mukherjee was well on the way to his second ascent to the top Appointed Deputy Chairman of the Planning Commission he was perhaps the last of the chiefs of that now derelict institution to actually believe in planning A bit like the boy on the burning deck he held aloft the flag of socialism in a governmental ethos that had lost its faith in the Nehruvian perspective and was reaching out to a brave new world Several high ministerial offices followed — defence foreign affairs finance — and in the party he was always the last repository of principles policies and politics Then at just the moment he might have become PM he instead became president His belief that the Congress is the “natural party of governance” is unwavering That is just the morale booster we need Welcome home Pranabda The writer is a senior Congress leader
