Last Call at the Oasis
Thu Oct 17, 7:30 PM
Lamakaan & Docu Circle of Hyderabad
This is the comeback film screening of the Docu Circle of Hyderabad.

You drink it, you swim in it, you survive on it. It's time you knew the truth about it.
Release year: 2011
Directed by: Jessica Yu
Duration: 1hr 40mins
Rating: PG13 (for some bad language and a lot of bad news)
Synopsis 1
A documentary by first-time filmmaker Jessica Yu, which tackles the macro issue of a possible
impending water crisis in a macro way. Last Call at the Oasis offers not only solutions that are
being examined and soon to be implemented ways to steer us away from economical
uncertainty if we begin to lose our dependence on water, but also explores a number of different
issues and smaller little conflicts that makeup and define the grandiose term " water crisis." We
open with a quote frighteningly stating that we could soon be fighting wars over water instead of
oil. People have taken for granted the seemingly unlimited supply of water we've been blessed
to have, but with a simple turn of the tap or even a trip to a nearby shop, we have access to as
much water as we can get our hands-on. One man states how our water supply is " infinite and
exhaustible," and how water is constantly reused, but we are beginning to dispose of it at a rate
so fast and uncontrollable that we are approaching a darker future, where water will be harder to
access and even more difficult to store.
Contamination and the popularity of bottled water are tackled here as well. As we see the
poignant images of women around the world lugging barrels of water at their sides or on their
heads, returning to a place where not a drop is in sight, while we make a trip to the store to
purchase bottled water and return home to a place where a simple turn of a tap can give us
more of the same thing, we question the logic of the situation and the complete and total
arrogance of it all. We've been told time and time again that bottled water is allegedly better for
us and are under the impression that it is more closely monitored than traditional tap water. Yet
a close look proves us naive, as even in the US, there have been hundreds of recalls of bottled
water because of contamination, glass particles in the water, and even mould.

The screening will be followed by a discussion.


ALL ARE WELCOME. ENTRY IS FREE & OPEN TO ALL!!!

NationalLanguage:Myth or Reality
Fri Oct 18, 7:00 PM

National Language of India: a myth or reality a talk by Shyam Rudra Pathak

"Compulsory status of English is causing large scale ruination of our talents from the group of non-English knowing people. There is a high correlation between the English knowing people and the affluent sections of the society. The compulsory status of English in all India competitive examinations produces a merit list which is in favour of the English knowing society of the country. This leads to the exclusion of the talents who are not in a position to receive education in the English medium. Government schools by and large teach the vast number of students in the media of Indian languages, whereas the competitive examinations held on the all India level are mostly held in the English medium and they contain compulsory English language paper as well. This situation not only deprives the students of the lower and middle stratum of the society of getting the developmental opportunities, but it also deprives the country of using its vast pool of the natural resource of the talents of its majority of the people. This is one of the root causes of the backwardness of this country. One additional dimension to the discrimination on the linguistic basis is among the Hindi belt and nonhindi belt people because there are many developmental opportunities being made available in the Hindi medium but not in the nonHindi Indian languages' media. Indians are the rarest of the unfortunate people in this world where people cannot seek justice in their own languages in the high courts and the Supreme court according to the constitutional provision laid down in article 348 of the Indian constitution. However, the central government goes beyond the constitution of India in discriminating between the Hindi belt and nonhindi belt people while making linguistic provisions in the high courts.

A brief about the Speaker:
Shyam Rudra Pathak is India's social-cultural worker. He is the coordinator of 'Campaign and Development Campaign' campaign.

He has written about himself: "If I recollect my childhood days I realize that I took deeper interest in agricultural activities before I started taking interest in studies. I remember I was considered a weak student for many years in my village school. I started taking interest in studies when I was asked to prepare for the admission test of Netarhat Vidyalay at the age of eleven or twelve. I passed that admission test and took admission in that school in class VI from where I appeared in my matriculation board examination. I was provided a silver medal by the Bihar board for securing one of the top ten positions in the 1979 secondary school examination.
In 1980 I took admission in 5 years integrated M S Physics course in IIT Delhi after obtaining an all India rank of 1330 in the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) for the IITs.
I got the first position in the All India GATE 1985 examination and took admission in M Tech in Energy Studies in IIT Delhi in 1985.
The biggest achievement of my life is the removal of compulsory English Language Paper in JEE from 1988 and the introduction of optional Indian Languages media in JEE from 1990. My efforts for this included several fasts as well, the longest among which was of nineteen and a half days duration undertaken in July/August 1989.

I wrote my MS Physics project report in Hindi in IIT Delhi and it was first rejected on that ground but was later on accepted after the issue was highlighted in newspapers, magazines and finally in the Parliament. The degrees started being given in Hindi and English in IITD from the convocation of 1985 after I refused to accept it in English alone, for which the convocation of the year 1985 had to be postponed in which the then PM Rajeev Gandhi was the chief guest. I wrote my M Tech Project Report also in Hindi, which was also not accepted in the beginning but was later on accepted after the issue was raised by some parliamentarians.

I worked as a research scholar in Energy Studies in IIT Delhi and in Astrophysics in TIFR Mumbai and TIFR Pune. I was expelled twice from TIFR Pune during this programme, although I held the first rank in the all India written examination for the research scholars selection of the TIFR and I had also obtained the first rank in the graduate programme (course woks and project) for the research scholars of TIFR Pune of my batch.

I took part in the anti Mandal agitation in 1990 and was sent to Tihar jail in that connection for about two days.

I remained in the Tihar Jail for the second time from July 17 till July 24, 2013 after refusing to stop my Dharana in spite of being arrested and released every day on 225 days from December 4, 2012 till July 16, 2013 in front of the residence of UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and the National head office of the congress party in Delhi. This Dharana was undertaken with the demand of amending article 348 of the Indian Constitution so that people can seek justice in their languages in the High Courts and the Supreme Court of India.
I was made the sole leader of the CSAT agitation during its later half period by the thousands of agitating UPSC aspirants in 2014 in Delhi. I am still facing a criminal case filed by the Modi govt against me in this connection."

Rafia Sultana
The play revolves around a clinic that is run by a lady doctor who is a smart business woman with only one or two regular patients yet making a comfortable living. The patients on the other hand who visits has a different motive and end up coming injured and don't mind spending heavily on her fees.

Will the compounder succeeds or the Cop from opposite police station will have a upper hand or patient wins the heart will be hilarious to watch. The play is a compilation of jokes put together in a story form adding music and dance to spice it up.
OlLolomatta is a word that is commonly used by Core Hyderbadis which means "don't mind, its a joke"
