Gandhi Study Centre aims to uphold the ideals of the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi. The Centre will explore the relevance of Gandhian ideology in the present world through seminars, workshops, lectures and exhibitions. Premised on the conviction that Gandhiji's philosophy has perennial relevance, the Centre's continuous effort will be to locate his ideology in this day and age and catalyze the awareness that it is the answer to the present crisis. The Centre's sustained thrust will be to analyze study and inculcate in young people Gandhian ethics and the principles of truth, nonviolence and self-discipline. Gandhiji's ideology has influenced myriad spheres of human experience: politics, economics, education, nation-building etc. The Centre will provide opportunities to critically interrogate these ideas, and disseminate them, exploring at the same time, Gandhiji's relevance as a leader, motivator, nation-builder and role model.
Cinema is immensely popular today. But in our preoccupation with cinema as a source of entertainment, we often fail to recognize its educational and social dimensions. Karnataka Chalana Chitra Academy is now taking the message across Karnataka that it is now time to acquaint our students with the educational and social dimensions of cinema. Also, the academy aims to cultivate intelligent, critical appreciation of cinema among viewers. With these objectives the Academy Chairman, Sri Nagabharana, inaugurated the film club in our college. Inaugurating the club, Sri Nagabharana expressed the hope that in the days to come, our students will be exposed to good cinema from across India and the world. Viewing them critically, they will become perceptive judges of this powerful medium.
