In 2020, history is being made every day.

Australian bushfires. Civil unrest in Hong Kong. A pandemic that took precious lives and changed the way we live. Protests in every corner of America — and around the world — to demand that Black Lives Matter.

But in the midst of these extraordinary events, everyday life still continues. 
We share moments, music, and meals.  
We dance. We laugh. We cry. 
We love. We fear. We hope. 

What if we captured all of it in a single day?

On Saturday, July 25, 2020, film your day and upload your footage and you may become part of a historic documentary – a time capsule of the year 2020. 

Anyone can participate and submissions from all over the world will be woven together to create a feature film, produced by Ridley Scott, directed by Kevin Macdonald, filmed by you, and premiering at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival. 

Submissions open on July 25th and close on August 2nd.

Learn more about filming requirements and how to take part.

Let’s write the story of 2020 together.TAKE PART

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

“A rousing success of an experiment: quite possibly the first large-scale, global use of the Internet to create meaningful and beautiful art.”

– CNNhttps://www.youtube.com/embed/w8S4gGI4nRo?cc_load_policy=1&enablejsapi=1&origin=https%3A%2F%2Flifeinaday.youtube&widgetid=3

In July 2010, tens of thousands of people picked up their cameras and followed a simple invitation: show us what your day looks like. 

With over 80,000 clips submitted from 189 countries, Life in a Day became the biggest participatory film project ever made. From 4,500 hours of footage, Kevin Macdonald and his team created a 90-minute feature film that premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and on YouTube. It’s since been watched over 16 million times.

You can watch the full film here.

UNDERSTANDING GENDER DISCRIMINATION

Right to equality includes equality before law, prohibition of discrimination on grounds of race, religion, gender, and caste or birth place. This law resides in the pages of the Constitution of every democratic nation. The Democratic Constitutions have always been mindful of people’s basic right. These constitutions have provided protection of the rights of the citizen by the government. But, it is very unfortunate that these laws are mere paper and ink. The society who calls itself “MODERN” never really accepted this fact. Despite of so many efforts from the government , activists, non governmental organisations and UN, the society never seems to change. Daily, there are many people who face discrimination on the basis of their gender. There are many women in families that are not allowed to work because apparently, “ That duty resides in the hands of the men of the house” ; This mentality is not restricted to any nation. All around the globe you will be able to find many cases where people do not get an opportunity to follow their dreams and passions because of their gender. 
There is a common misconception in the minds of the people that gender discrimination is solely based on women’s rights. This is where you are wrong; gender discrimination is faced by both the genders. With a growing number of men taking on the responsibility of caring for children as their parters work, breaking down traditional gender stereotypes is increasingly important. Research has also shown societal pressures to be aggressive and not reveal vulnerabilities can have negative affects on men.Bringing men into the conversation on gender equality takes a step toward breaking down those expectations of both genders. As Watson said in her speech, “It is time that we all perceive gender on a spectrum, not as two opposing sets of ideals.”

It is time for you take a stand. Speak against discrimination. IF NOT NOW, WHEN ?IF NOT BY YOU, THEN WHO ?
BE THE CHANGE

WE ARE ONE

Dear readers,

I hope that you read this blog in athe best of your health. Today I am going to have a discussion with you on ‘ Discrimination’.

This is probably the topic that has no end , thanks to our society. Today, our great 21st century society has reached Mars, has gone to Moon and invented some very phenomenal wonders that make our life easier. But, has anyone in any profession has thought that we have made our lives easy; but have we made our lives comfortable ? That is a pretty odd question because you would think that why is Akshiitaa associating these two things ? When we have easy lives we are able to live a comfortable life.

That is a valid point, but I am telling you to think about this question very deeply. Are you comfortable to live in this society ? I am not. I fear every now and then that I would made be fun off by people behind my back on the basis of my physical appearance, or I would made be fun of by my classmates because I like to wear shirts and blazers instead of skirts and tops. Yes, I am not comfortable to live like this. I am tired of hearing that these sports are for boys or that these clothes look good or that fashion industry is meant for women, dance classes and cooking are for women and a man cannot dream to have this as a career. I am tired of iving in a society that does treat all genders equally and I do not wish to live “THIS MODERN SOCIETY” to the future generations. Instead of accomodating to this society I wish to change it.

And this change will not be successful if you do not help me. Pandemic does not means that we will sit in our homes and do our 9 to 5 jobs. There is no better opportunity than this to make people aware. You can take just 2 hours from your week to write articles or poems or make posters, that make people aware. It is possible that when this lockown gets over our society will emerge to be much more morally inclined and free from social problems.

If you cannot write, or paint or sing you can at least stop someone if he or she is discriminating someone.

Discrimination is very tough to eradicate its everywhere. From job positions to politics to education etc.

I would be obliged if you all have discussions with me. We all bloggers can even create a joint blog that promotes change in the lives of people. A blog that does not restricts to a country , where we can raise our voices together to fight social evils and environmental problems and create foundations in which we can donate it to the poor and needy.

If a 15 year old girl is willing to chance why can’t you ? Why can’t you be the part of the change ?

I will upload my email id on the contact form. Kindly notify me if you want to have a joint blog that mainly discusses about these given issues:

  1. Environmental problems
  2. Social inequality [ Gender, race, cast, colour and creed ]
  3. Animal torture
  4. Poverty

and many more……

If we discuss these issues we can find a solution to this. We can make people aware in our locality which will help us to eradicate the issues given above. We can collaborate to cooperate to help government to resolve these issues.

Thank you for your time.

A Story of Courage

” India symbolises bravery, courage growth and hardcore patriotism”

Rifleman Jaswant Singh is considered the hero of Sino-India Warin 1962. According to a local legend,he single-handedly fought the Chinese army for three days. It was the last phase of the war in November 1962, and due to a lack of resources, his company was asked to fall back. But, Jaswant Singh remained at his post. With the help of two local girls, Sela and Nura, Jaswant Singh set up weapons at three different spots and fired them non-stop for three days. Thinking a big contingent was firing at them, the Chinese Army stayed put. As the time passed, the Chinese Army grew frustrated, as they knew no way to counter the purported attack of the Indian Army. They finally caught the man who was providing food to Jaswant and the two girls and interrogated him. The man spilled the beans. The Chinese then surrounded Jaswant Singh from all sides. Nura was captured and Sela died in a grenade burst. Jaswant Singh, realising he was about to be captured, shot himself. The Chinese forces cutoff Jaswant Singh’s head and took it back to China as a war souvenir. After the war was over, the commander of the Chinese forces, impressed by the late Jaswant Singh’s show of bravery, returned his head along with a brass bust made of the soldier. It is now installed at the site of the battle. He was posthumously awarded Maha Vir Chakra for his bravery. Jaswant Singh’s display of valour, and his love for his nation has proved to be a great source of inspiration to Indian soldiers since.

This is a shrine to Jaswant Singh Rawat who won the Maha Vir Chakra posthumously at the Battle of Nuranang during the 1962 india china war. 

I hope that you liked the article.
