Black Pamphlets ..On Campus Democracy

The screening of Black Pamphlet took place on 13th March 2010 at Satyabharati Auditorium, due to the non-availability of Raam Ke Naam. This was suggested to us as pertaining to the issues of youth policy and leadership. And it did generate quite a discussion!
  1. Almost everybody felt that youth's involvement in politics is vital, but also focused on the dangers depicted in the documentary of corruption, bad practices, hooliganism, etc. Discussions moved on to the role of political parties and how student's movement need to be independent.
  2. Whether right or left affiliated student bodies, it was felt that brain washing of youngsters is an exercise which goes around all the corners. This also happens in  Ranchi when young people dive into movements and they are guided by various interest groups.
  3. The youth needs to interact at various spheres and also have opportunities to get engaged in social movements and get exposed to larger societal questions. For this various programmatic support is required to promote such youth development processes.
  4. Youth Policy of Jharkhand has been passed by the Cabinet in Jharkhand, and very few people know about it. It is time that more and more discussions are brought into the forefront, and systems are demanded for implementation of the same. (Akay Minz).
