Parisar Asha conducted a revolutionary creative summit, on ‘The Art of Learning for a Sustainable Tomorrow’ in association with Rubix 108 Technologies & Edusports, for more than 300 school principals at Kohinoor Continental Hotel, Mumbai. The summit commenced with the customary lamp lighting ceremony by Shri. Adv. Ashish Shelar- Hon’ble President of BJP, Mumbai, ace Choreographer Sandip Soparrkar and CEO of Parisar Asha, Ms. Aarati Savur. Hon’ble School Education Minister, Maharashtra Shri Vinod Tawde and famous film personality, Ms. Juhi Chawla were present on this momentous occasion to show their support for Parisar Asha. Juhi Chawla chose this platform to screen the trailer of her movie ‘Chalk n Duster’, which is scheduled to release on 15th Jan’16 and is also based on the current education scenario. Juhi Chawla was seen playing quiz game with teachers. The event was attended by Singer Gwen Athaide and actress Kesariee.
It was also a moment of pride for Parisar Asha , when Shri Ashish Shelar, Hon’ble President of BJP, Mumbai unveiled their new initiative ISoulastic- A renewed academic approach to touch the mind , body and soul of a child.
This was also a jubilant occasion for few teachers who were awarded prizes by the distinguished guests as winners of the ‘Selfie Contest’, initiated by Parisar Asha on Teachers’ Day 2015 and sponsored by Pidilite Industries Ltd. Other panelists also focused on many untapped subjects relevant in the curriculum, such as safety, child finance and inclusive education.
“As an individual, the system cannot be changed single-handedly. The biggest takeaway of this unique initiative for all our educationists was to learn the art of Individual Social Responsibility (ISR) and initiate a positive wave to change mindsets for accepting the emerging learning styles across the globe, to make the existing education system joyous and fulfilling, contributing positively towards a sustainable future.”, said C.E.O of Parisar Asha, Ms. Aarati Savur.
This summit is the beginning of another journey in the field of education and Parisar Asha feels that this revolutionary treatment of education will go a long way to bring about a substantial change in the current education system.
We have seen Educational films in past like Do Dooni Chaar, 3 Idiots which are some where related to teachers, to change the Education system & has been hugely appreciated by viewers due to it great message. Now Lets see Our next film CHALK N DUSTER which again is a Solo Release, how it fares with Audience ?
Film Chalk N Duster opens with Annual Day Prepartions of Kantaben High School, where Dacnce Teacher Jyoti (Juhi Chawala) & Art Teacher (Upasana Singh Bharadwaj) are doing rehearsals with students for Annual Day. Twist comes when Head Clerk Kamini (Divya Dutta) tells lies to Anmol Pareikh (Aarya Babbar) who is a UK return , that She has done preparations for Annual day & Takes the honor of Principal.
On Getting Powers, Kamini increases fees , puts charge on Tea , Inorder to haraas Teachers so they on their own leave and go, So can appoint younger ones.
But Here comes twist , when She raised fingers on Vidya (Shabana Azmi) that she is incapable of teaching – Who has given free lectures & classes to students who can’t afford. These words came in ears of Jackie Shroff (Who is owner of No 1 School) & He sent Media (Richa Chaddha) to Kantaben School and Then you know “When Media is there, Truth can’t be hidden”
Rapid Fire Round is the Best Round by Anchor (Rishi Kapoor) where Questions are Set by Anmol Pareikh & Kamini Gupta. And Spontaneous Answers by Vidya mam & Jyoti Mam. Here also you will get some GK like “First Petrol Car” , etc
(Samir Soni) is an Computer Engineer and plays is supporting Husband of Jyoti Mam (Juhi Chawla) . Child Actors are really good and thenspecial appreances of NASA scientists and Pilot who are students of Vidya.
Direction by Jayant Gilatar is just Super. Great story line which is portrayed by sweetness and simplicity, and keeps it charm throughout.
Music By Sandesh Shandilya is sensuous especially “Aye Zindagi” & “The fear of Algebra” which guesses will remind you of Algebra and Geometry.
Review: Film Chalk N Duster is full of Entertainment with strong Content & good message to open the eyes of Corrupt System which is Sad , But true. And also you will send “Good Morning message to your Teachers after Watching or might you may even go for Picnic to you School.
Character Graph : Juhi Chawla looks lovely as Dance teacher, which actually took me back reminded of my Hindi Teacher. Shabana Azmi (Maths teacher) and I can really remember lessons given by Naina teacher on Algebra. Aarya Babbar also maintains his presence even in his small appearance . Special Appearance by Rishi Kapoor, Jackie Shroff and Richa is again Outstanding. And Last but not Least Vampish Divya Dutta , you are juts thundering after Bhagban.
