Uvarsad (Gandhinagar) : Continuing its efforts to create a platform for engaging dialogues, Karnavati University organised a charismatic discussion on ‘The War Within’ by noted filmmaker, Mr Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri, on Friday. The session was held at the varsity campus in Uvarsad Gandhinagar. Karnavati University is a state private university dedicated to excellence in teaching and is focused on interdisciplinary learning.
Mr Vivek Agnihotri is the Member of the Board, Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and a noted film director, screenwriter and author. During his session, he spoke about the role of Indian women in shaping the world order.
“Feminism is a concept of the West. They changed the definition of empowerment. According to them, only those women who work at factories are empowered. Women empowerment films in India are focused on the idea of independence derived from the western world. Modern feminism doesn’t have the sentiment of sacrifice. There is nobody in the world who is more empowered than the women of India.” Mr Agnihotri said during the interactive session.
“It’s time to celebrate our real heroes. The real heroes of India are Indian women and it is important to put them on the world stage, and tell them that if the world will live happily, it will be their women. Indian economy will turn from $3 tr to $5 trillion due to the Naari Shakti,” he said.
” All civilisations of the world have ended. Only civilisation that is alive and thriving in this modern world is the Indian civilisation, which has survived despite centuries of slavery here. The biggest crisis of the world is trust deficit according to noted political and social thinkers. Indians are known for their trust, which is their universal quality. The world is understanding the importance of sentiment of sacrifice to save other lives and build other lives,” he further went on to say.
Mr Ritesh Hada, President, Karnavati University, said, “Over the years, Karnavati University has organised a series of meaningful dialogues engaging political figures, thought leaders, academicians, policymakers and youth. The idea behind organising such discussions is to provide a platform to the youth of India to express their ideas and thoughts on a variety of subjects of national importance. In times of today, when the socio-economic, political and geopolitical scenario is undergoing a paradigm shift, such discussions provide meaningful insights to the youth on subjects of importance.”
