Reliving the Leopold moments with RGV

“I would not term The Attacks of 26/11 a film. It is something you can
only experience — you will walk out of the theatre silently. Ramu’s
chronicling of the attacks is so gripping. Why I did the film? It is
because it shows why such incidents happen and I like Ramu’s comment
of the subject.” Thus echoed Nana at the music launch of The Attacks
of 26/11 at the Leopold Cafe. Unlike other musical events, this one
was replete with stories by survivors Reuters Journalist Sourav Mishra
and Filmmaker Kate Chailate, soulful singing by Sukhwinder, Rooshin
Dalal and Sooraj Jagan, and moments relived by RGV and Nana.
Said Ram Gopal Varma, “The idea to hold it at Leopold was because the
place mattered to the film. We shot at Leopold Cafe because I could
think of no better location that this to bring out the significance of
this occasion.
The mood was sombre and the event did not resemble a typical Bollywood
movie music launch and there was a dash of pathos in Nana’s voice,
tremendous restraint in Ram Gopal Varma’s demeanour and a few drop of
tears in Kate’s eyes.
Ram Gopal Varma’s The Attacks of 26/11, produced by Parag Sanghavi of
Alumbra Entertainment and Eros International, is all set for a March 1


Sherlyn celebrates her Birthday and Womanhood

Mumbai, 11th February 2013: While celebrities like throwing a bash or taking a vacation on their birthdays, Sherlyn decided to be different as she celebrated her birthday in ‘special’ company. The model turned actress was at ‘Kamathipura’, Mumbai’s oldest and Asia’s 2nd largest red light district. Sherlyn feels that sex workers are considered an ‘outcast’ by the society which is prejudicial. Hence she wanted to make them feel special and decided to spend her birthday moments with them.

Sherlyn opted for a cake with a special message that read ‘celebrating womanhood’ as it is the essence of her birthday. Sherlyn decided to visit the sex workers as they hold a special place in her heart as she in her own words was ‘one of them’. It was during her stay in Los Angeles in July last year that there was a phenomenal shift in her level of consciousness.

While Bollywood has been to Kamathipura several times for movie shoots, no one has been thoughtful to spend personal time with sex workers. Meena (name changed) was very excited about the fact that Sherlyn chose to celebrate the occasion with the ladies of Kamathipura. Proper care was taken to respect the privacy of the sex workers, hence media was not invited for coverage and Sherlyn was just assisted by Kreative Access Media team. Sherlyn is known to live her life by her rules and the distinctive way in which she celebrated her birthday makes her bold and beautiful.

Focus Kids launches ‘Internet for Kids’, a first-of-its-kind initiative aimed at championing the cause of ‘Responsible Usage of Internet for Kids’

~Good Internet versus Bad Internet’ sessions to be conducted at schools to propagate the cause~

~Desktop systems to be donated to deserving schools for every 1k downloads~

February 11th2013, Mumbai: Focus Kids, India’s only integrated kid’s media company has launched ‘Internet for Kids’, a first-of-its-kind initiative that is aimed at championing the cause of ‘Responsible Usage of Internet for kids’. Internet for Kids is a downloadable PDF guide that will help parents to have an active dialogue with their children about internet usage which is more ‘constructive’ than ‘restrictive’. The campaign revolves around three key principles – LEARN, TALK and EXPLORE. LEARN-Parents and children need to know internet better. Parents, in order to ensure their children have a safe, well regulated and effective internet usage; and children to understand the medium and how it can be helpful to them. TALK-Discussing and talking about the doubts, myths, confusions, concerns in the most open manner is very important for both parents and children. EXPLORE -It is important for parents and children to explore the various benefits of the internet, as it is a wonderful and ever evolving resource of information. Speaking on the launch of Internet for Kids, Mr. Swapnil Puranik, Business Head, Focus Kids said, “The Internet is an excellent medium for kids to learn and explore. Today, it has become a way of life for both – parents and kids, making it imperative for them to understand this medium better. Parents should monitor what a kid sees and absorbs on the internet; without making him or her feel intruded .Restricting kids from using the internet or accessing social networking websites may not be the best solution. The ‘Internet for Kids’ parenting guide provides some simple yet effective methods in ensuring effective‘ Internet Parenting’ to address these issues.”

Advocating the need for online safety of kids Mr. Puranik further added, “According to a recent survey it is estimated that 27% of urban kids in India currently consume internet, through various screens. Subsequently there is a growing concern among parents about the digital divide between them and their kids. It is not possible for parents to control the online activity of their kids at all times. Additionally, India does not have a cyber-policy that safe guards the interests of children like Children’s Online Privacy Protection (COPPA) in the United States. These gaps have increased the instances of online bullying and threatening, which can have an adverse impact on kids. Having worked with various kid’s brands and schools in the past, our intention is to inculcate the culture of responsible internet usage in kids across India, and increase awareness among parents, through an initiative like this.”

As an extension to the campaign, Focus Kids will be organizing interactive sessions in various schools across select cities in India, which have commenced from 8th of February 2013.Colorful posters spreading awareness about the Good Internet versus Bad Internet sessions will be displayed in the schools prior to the same. During these sessions a brief will be provided by a Focus Kids representative and an edutainment video will be played, demonstrating the difference between good internet habits versus bad internet influence. A quick quiz will be held at the end to gauge the understanding of participants. A Good Internet tracker will be provided to all participants to keep a tab on useful websites they will be visiting through the year.

As a social responsibility aspect of the campaign, Focus Kids plans to donate desktops units to deserving schools across Maharashtra, for every 1000 downloads of the Internet for Kids guide. This donation-drive will not only help encouraging downloads of the Internet for Kids guides, but will serve needy schools with quality internet access, in a bid to usher in a fresh medium of learning. Focus Kids plans to reach out to 400 schools across the country through this campaign.

The Internet for Kids PDF will be available on the following website is an easy-to-follow guide with a colorful representation of the information. Parents or kids wishing to download the document can do so using either their email id’s, or logging-in with their Facebook accounts, which will display on their profiles participation in the initiative. The Good Inernet versus bad internet video will be accessible on the website. Information and photos capturing the desktop donation drive and Good Internet versus Bad Internet demonstrations being organized at schools will be displayed on the website. Focus Kids aims at reaching out to One million individuals across India, through this campaign at the end of one year.
