APTN National NewsThe look of the missing women’s inquiry in Vancouver is about to drastically change.In what appears to be a move to meet the pressures of a looming deadline, Wally Oppal announced major changes to his commission.Changes that took observers by surprise and on first blush disappointed them once again.APTN National News reporter Rob Smith has the story.
11 November 2009The United Nations human rights chief today called on the Security Council to put more muscle into protecting civilians in armed conflict, citing Israel’s war in Gaza and the situations in Darfur, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and Afghanistan as examples of the need to end impunity. “To be effective in the protection of civilians, the Council must consistently work to ensure accountability for perpetrators of war crimes, crimes against humanity and other gross violations of human rights,” High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said in a statement delivered by Deputy High Commissioner Kyung-wha Kang.“The establishment of tribunals for the former Yugoslavia, Rwanda and elsewhere, as well as the referral of specific cases to the International Criminal Court, have helped to send an important signal that even in the ‘fog of war’ impunity is not assured,” she added, stressing that “the corrosive effect of impunity on both human rights and peace” was clearly documented by the UN fact-finding mission’s report on the Gaza conflict last winter.As it began its debate on the protection of civilians in armed conflict, the Council unanimously adopted a resolution reiterating its willingness to respond to cases where civilians are targeted or humanitarian aid to civilians is deliberately obstructed, condemning indiscriminate or disproportionate attacks and the use of the presence of civilians to render areas or forces immune from military action.In addition, it called for an end to impunity, and noted that civilians continue to account for the vast majority of casualties in armed conflict.Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called for reinvigorated commitment by the Council, Member States, and the UN to the principles of international humanitarian law, human rights law and refugee law, laying out “five core challenges.”These are: strengthened compliance by all parties with international law such as access to conflict zones; more consistent engagement with non-State armed groups to ensure their compliance and safe access to populations; greater ability for peacekeeping missions to protect more effectively such as by active policing of territory; better and safer to civilians in need; and enhanced accountability for perpetrators of crimes and crimes against humanity.Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs John Holmes said engagement with non-State armed groups, “however much we may condemn the aims of their often bloody acts which take many civilian lives,” is critical for access to those in need and enhancing compliance with humanitarian law, and agencies must have the flexibility to engage them.Mr. Pillay’s statement was the most detailed in its litany of grave violations. Referring to the UN probe on Gaza headed by Richard Goldstone, former prosecutor at the UN tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda, she stressed the nature and scope of violations of international human rights perpetrated on the civilian population of the occupied Palestinian territory.The report, which the Secretary-General has transmitted to the Council, found evidence that both Israel and the Palestinians committed serious war crimes during the hostilities in December and January.“Israeli forces killed well over 1,000 civilians and attacked homes, schools, mosques, food and water installations, and UN facilities,” she said, noting also the indiscriminate launching of rockets and mortars into southern Israel by armed Palestinian groups in Gaza, killing Israeli civilians and causing terror and trauma among communities in disregard of international law. “Collective punishment, as evidenced by the crippling Israeli blockade and the devastating military offensive, is a violation of international human rights and humanitarian law, as are the forcible evictions of Arabs, the demolition of homes, and the expropriation of occupied East Jerusalem lands for Israeli settlements,” she added.“Until meaningful steps are taken to end impunity for these violations and assert the applicability of international law, peace and security will remain illusive for all the people of the region,” she said, urging the Council to embrace the report’s recommendations to secure accountability for all perpetrators, and to fully integrate human rights guarantees into peacemaking efforts.On the DRC, she called the situation in the east of the vast county “a horrifying reminder of the depths to which inhumanity can spiral if left unchecked.”Decrying the fact that military operations against residual armed groups have led to massive displacement, the killing of several hundred civilians this year alone, and a drastic increase in sexual violence, including rape, she called for a review of support by the UN peacekeeping mission for the Congolese Army whenever there is a risk of violations of humanitarian law.On Darfur, where some 300,000 people have been killed and 2.7 million others displaced by six years of conflict pitting rebels against the Government and its allied Janjaweed militiamen, Ms. Pillay said justice remains elusive and violations continue, while the joint UN-African Union peacekeeping mission, known as UNAMID, has been unable to fully deploy due to resource constraints, delayed troop deployment, and political impediments.Turning to Afghanistan, she said the conflict has repeatedly caught civilians in the cross-fire, as evidenced by the recent attack on a UN guesthouse in Kabul that killed 5 UN staff members and injured numerous others. “Civilian casualties continue to mount, with hundreds killed every year by armed anti-government elements, government forces, and international forces carrying out both air strikes and ground assaults,” she added, noting the continued impunity. These four country cases demonstrate the gap between policy and practice. “Closing that gap will require a greater commitment by all to the explicit application of international law, and to its enforcement,” Ms. Pillay concluded. “It will require more political will, and less political exceptionalism – all must be held to a single standard.”More than 60 countries are scheduled to speak in the day-long debate. read more

Brock and McMaster University students are working with the Niagara Health System this summer in the I-EQUIP pilot program to find ways to improve health care locally. Seen here are I-EQUIP participants Brock student Cam Thompson, Gina Fleming, a pharmacist with the Niagara Health System, Brock student Michelle Zahradnik, McMaster student Allison Brown and Brock professor Madelyn Law.Brock University and McMaster University have teamed up with the Niagara Health System (NHS) to assist in health care improvement efforts across the NHS.This summer, eight Brock community health sciences students are working with five students at the Niagara campus of McMaster’s Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine and five NHS managers and clinicians to better patient care at different sites throughout the region’s health system.The endeavour, called I-EQUIP – Interprofessional Education for Quality Improvement – is part of a new initiative developed jointly by the two universities. The point is to give the students the chance to apply what they’re learning in the classroom.The pilot fills an education gap that exists for future health care professionals when it comes to understanding how health care systems function, and what it means to clinical practice and patients, explained Madelyn Law, assistant professor in the Department of Community Health Sciences at Brock. “You need to understand what quality health care is and how to achieve that, and how to be the impetus for improvement,” Law said.Talk of an applied learning experience started last winter. The opportunity for students to put their knowledge to the test with the NHS was particularly timely because each hospital has had to implement quality improvement plans in accordance with the province’s Excellent Care for All Act, which came into effect in 2010.The students are working with the NHS this summer to create site-specific projects that will be rolled out this fall in ways that will enable staff to carry on with them. The outcomes will be presented at a symposium in the spring of 2013.“The vision is that the health workforce of the future will identify problems, create answers and study the effectiveness of those solutions,” said Dr. Karl Stobbe, assistant regional dean of the medical school’s Niagara campus. “This project has a lot of potential for major impact, but it will take time.”The hope is that future students will also continue the work started by their predecessors or find new ways to improve care.“We are extremely excited to be partners in this initiative,” said Sue Matthews, NHS interim president and CEO. “Our collaboration with the universities leads to great opportunities for students, and great learning and knowledge transfer that helps us improve patient care.”Gina Fleming, a pharmacist with the NHS who’s working with the students, echoed Matthews’ sentiments.“Definitely, it’s fresh perspective. They have the expertise and the research part of things,” Fleming said.The program could expand beyond improving acute care to tweaking primary care, long-term care or public health departments, Law explained.“We know that patient care and services could be improved across the spectrum,” she said.The experience also provides students with “a huge leverage point” to launch their careers in health care, Law added.“The great thing about I-EQUIP is that we are able to use what we have learned from our coursework and translate that into practical solutions to improve healthcare delivery in Niagara,” said Rob Smith, a third year Brock health sciences student.Others see it as a way to return the favour for the learning opportunities provided by the health system.“As medical students we rely on a lot of time and support from the hospital staff and the patients in the region so I feel like this project is a great way to try to give and give back to the health system,” said Ted Maloney, a McMaster MD candidate, Class of 2014.Law said she only sees the program – and student interest in it – growing as word about the experience it provides spreads.“I have a feeling next year we’ll have a lot of students hearing about it and wanting to be part of it.” read more
Boliden is launching an organisation comprising two Business Areas: Smelters and Mines. The change entails integrating Business Area Market with these two Business Areas, and Svante Nilsson has been appointed President, BA Smelters.The bulk of BA Market’s operations – purchasing raw materials and selling metals – will be integrated with Smelters, while responsibility for concentrates sales will be integrated with Mines. These changes are being implemented with a view to generating further efficiency improvements within the Group’s material flows.“In two years, Business Area Market has achieved significant efficiency improvements in the Group’s management of its material flows. The next step towards achieving further improvements requires this area of responsibility to be tied even more closely to the production units,” says Lennart Evrell, Boliden’s President and CEO.Svante Nilsson, currently President, Business Area Market and acting President, Business Area Smelters, has been appointed President, Business Area Smelters. The organisational changes are effective as of May 8, 2009.Boliden is a leading European metals company whose core competence is in the fields of exploration, mining, smelting and recycling. Boliden’s main metals are zinc and copper. Other important metals extracted and refined include lead, gold and silver. The number of employees is approximately 4 600 and annual turnover amounts to approximately SEK 30 billion. read more
NEARLY €9 MILLION has been paid out to survivors of the Magdalene Laundries with the 250 women who have accepted offers sharing an average of €34,800.The Department of Justice has told the Public Accounts Committee today that 724 applications have been made to the compensation scheme set up on foot of a report by the former senator Martin McAleese into the controversial laundries.The department’s secretary general Brian Purcell told the committee that progress on compensation has been “broadly in line with expectations” with 250 women accepting offers and €8.7 million paid out.However, he acknowledged delays in amending current legislation to provide the affected women with healthcare.The department set aside €23 million for the compensation fund which was set up following a report by Justice Quirke, President of the Law Reform Commission, on the establishment of an ex-gratia scheme and supports for the hundreds of women affected.One of the Quirke report’s recommendations was that the Magdalene women should all be granted access, without charge, to a wide range of services including GP care, hospital visits, drugs, and dental counselling through ‘an enhanced medical card’.The committee heard that there has been a delay in providing this as it requires a change in the law. Recommendations on amending existing legislation are expected to be finalised by the department within the next fortnight.Read: Abuse survivors to protest against redress fundRead: Women ‘yet to receive a penny’ on anniversary of apology to Magdalene survivors read more
Sony laisse bien tomber la PSP GoLa marque japonaise a confirmé l’abandon de la production de la PSP Go, lancée en 2009.Sony veut se concentrer sur la NGP, sa future console portable nouvelle génération. Le constructeur nippon a donc annoncé l’arrêt de la production de sa PSP Go pour mettre toutes ses forces dans la future concurrente de la Nintendo 3DS. Néanmoins, la console sera commercialisée jusqu’à épuisement des stocks disponibles et Sony a indiqué qu’il assurerait le SAV ainsi que les mises à jour, relaye Zdnet. Il semble que le tremblement de terre du 11 mars a quelque peu précipité cette décision, le géant japonais ayant déjà repoussé la date de sortie de la NGP. On va vraisemblablement devoir attendre jusqu’au début de l’année 2012 pour se la procurer alors que son lancement était prévu pour la période des fêtes de fin d’année.

What: Network of 15 luxury auto dealerships with more than 1,450 employees across Colorado, California, Oregon and Washington.Headquarters: 17800 S.E. Mill Plain Blvd., No. 190, VancouverProjected 2014 revenue: $1.2 billion.CEO: Greg Goodwin.Web: www.kuniauto.com/index.htmWalk through the floor-to-ceiling glass front door, and you might think you’ve been transported to the high-tech halls of Silicon Valley. Here, at one of Vancouver’s largest companies, a ping-pong table beckons employees to stay active when they take a break. The scent of spices wafts from the office’s commercial-grade kitchen. Even on a cloudy day, enough sun shines through the wall of windows to make the polished concrete floors gleam.But then there are the cars: High-end vehicles parked next to meeting nooks and alongside corporate logos, showing visitors to Kuni Automotive headquarters what this $1.2 billion business is really all about. “Welcome,” says Kuni CEO Greg Goodwin. “To The Garage.”After two years in his company’s gleaming corporate headquarters, home to about 50 employees from the luxury auto dealership chain’s management and finance teams, Goodwin says he still feels revitalized each time he shows up at the office.He and Chief Financial Officer Laura Carlisle conceived of the space they call “The Garage” after Kuni acquired a chain of Colorado Land Rover dealerships in 2011. That acquisition more than tripled the size of Kuni’s headquarters staff, and there just wasn’t enough room in the company’s old headquarters. They found a 15,000-square-foot former call center inside Columbia Tech Center, then hired C2K Architecture Inc. to remove the carpet and drop ceilings and design a space inspired by Google and Facebook headquarters — and by the automotive garages that are central to their industry. read more
Global professional services recruitment organisation Ambition has given its 40 UK-based employees an additional hour off work this week, in order to help staff focus on their mental wellbeing.The initiative, which has been designed to allow extra time for employees to take part in activities that can help them de-stress or concentrate on their mental wellbeing, is one of the measures that has been implemented by the organisation this week in recognition of The Mental Health Foundation’s Mental Health Awareness Week, running between Monday 14 May and Sunday 20 May 2018.Employees are able to use the extra hour off work as they wish, for example to take a longer lunch break, arrive at work an hour later or leave work an hour earlier.Other initiatives Ambition has run this week as part of Mental Health Awareness Week included hosting a Curry and Chaat fundraising event, where employees enjoyed a curry together, and creating an interactive stress awareness space so that employees can share their experiences of stress and their tips on dealing with it.The organisation has also been encouraging employees to use their lunch break to get away from their desks and get involved in activities that might benefit their mental health. Ambition suggested employees take a team lunch in the park, go for a walk, meet up with friends who work nearby, read a book, take a nap or listen to a podcast.Ambition decided to recognise Mental Health Awareness Week as it wanted to encourage employees to be aware of their own mental health, as well as showcase that the organisation supports staff in taking time out of the working day to de-stress. Ambition also wished to highlight the importance of discussing mental health both in and out of the workplace.The Mental Health Awareness Week activities were communicated to employees via an organisation-wide email on Friday 11 May 2018.The initiatives this week form part of Ambition’s wider focus on employees’ mental and physical health and wellbeing. This includes the organisation holding an annual wellbeing week, where employees can participate in activities surrounding healthy eating, exercise and mindfulness.Nicky Acuna Ocana, managing director at Ambition UK, said: “Recruitment can be a very stressful career at times, so ensuring our staff take time out to unwind is something we take extremely seriously. This week especially we are encouraging employees to focus on their mental wellbeing and use their time to de-stress and bond with their colleagues.“Although we are specifically focusing on mental health this week, we always encourage and support staff when they are feeling overwhelmed. Letting our staff know that we are here for them brings the team together and helps to improve productivity and communication across the business.” read more
Meghan MarkleGetty ImagesMeghan Markle is not a commoner per se, but she is when it comes to the Royal Family and so was Kate Middleton.Apparently, the only reason the pair was allowed to join the Royal Family was because of Princess Margaret. Princess Margaret’s marriage to Lord Snowdon was a symbolic “symptom of the great changes in the monarchy”, a historian claims.Apparently, long before Prince William and Prince Harry both chose to marry non-royals, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, respectively, it was Princess Margaret who made history by becoming the first daughter of a king to marry a commoner in 4 centuries.Reportedly in an uncovered article from 1960, the late author and historian L.G. Pine commented how the marriage of Princess Margaret and Mr. Armstrong-Jones, later known as Lord Snowdon, was “a symptom of the great changes in our Royal Family.”Mr. Pine remembers the “very great changes wrought by the 1914-18 War in the pattern of the royal marriages in Britain.” Meghan MarkleGetty ImagesThe article states “only one of Queen Victoria’s children [Princess Louise married the nine Duke of Argyll] married outside the ranks of royalty.”Mr.Pine commented that “we have only to recall that, of the five children of George V who married, only one married a scion of royalty.”Well, we have to say, Princess Margaret paving the way again was indeed a good thing as both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle seem like fine additions to the Royal Family. Even though there might be a feud brewing between the pair. Meghan Markle is expected to give birth in April. read more
Amazon.com Inc said on Wednesday it had signed a deal to lease 20 Boeing 767 widebody freighter aircraft to handle more of its own deliveries in the United States.The deal comes at a time when the world’s biggest on-line retailer is offering ever-faster, and increasingly free, deliveries for millions of on-line orders.Amazon, which relies on carriers like United Parcel Service Inc and FedEx Corp to deliver most of its packages, spent $11.5 billion on shipping last year.In a bid to assume more control over its supply chain and reduce costs, Amazon has rolled out thousands of trailers and launched a programme that uses contract drivers to deliver fast orders.But analysts said the long-rumoured plan to build its own air fleet posed little threat to the leading delivery companies.”This is an incremental negative for FDX and UPS as it will likely remove some higher yielding express freight and parcel volume from each of the respective networks,” RBC Capital Markets analyst John Barnes wrote in a client note.UPS, the world’s No. 1 package delivery company, operates about 240 large planes while FedEx has a fleet of about 370, Barnes noted. FedEx and UPS shares were down about 1.5 percent.FedEx said on Wednesday the announcement was not a surprise and called Amazon a valuable customer.”We work closely with Amazon and have been aware for some time about their need for supplemental air capacity related to inventory management,” said Patrick Fitzgerald, senior vice president of integrated marketing and communications at FedEx.The leased planes will start to go into operation on April 1, Amazon spokeswoman Kelly Cheeseman said in an email.Amazon has been testing deliveries by drones but has not said when they would be in service.The duration of the leases will be five to seven years, lessor Air Transport Services Group Inc said.As part of the agreement, Amazon has the right to buy up to 19.9 percent of ATSG’s stock over five years at $9.73 per share.ATSG’s stock soared almost 27 percent to a record high of $14.90, before paring gains to about 16 percent. read more
According to recent reports Qatar is on track to pass the three million visitor mark by end of the year, with support of upcoming festivals from now until end of 2015, said H.E. Issa bin Mohammed Al Mohannadi, the Chairman of Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA).“The summer signals growth for the tourism industry. It also means arrival of the Eid Al-Fitr festival, followed closely by Qatar Summer Festival 2015, and Eid Al-Adha Festival. These activities help to diversify and grow our country’s tourism offering. We have called on our partners to make Qatar stand out this year and help us pass the three million visitors mark for the first time by end of 2015,” he stated while addressing QTA stakeholders, partners and staff at the authority’s second annual tourism industry Ghabga.Initial estimates of the sector’s impact on the local economy suggest that tourism directly contributed USD 3.7 billion to the country’s GDP in 2013, representing four percent of Qatar’s non-hydrocarbon economy. As the country increases its efforts to diversify sources of revenue, Qatar is working towards achieving an average of USS 10.7 billion in tourism spending by 2030. For Qatar’s tourism sector the year 2015 has been promising, with the country on track for a 10% year-on-year increase in number of visitors, from the region and world. read more
June 03 , 2019 From the pages of Produce Business UKIn 2018, the value of fresh fruit and vegetable exports from Holland to the UK was valued at €1.2 billion, a 1% lift compared to the previous year. These figures show the relationship between the two countries remains strong despite a time of political uncertainty where Britain’s place in the European Union has more ups and downs than a rollercoaster.Historically, the two nations have worked closely within the fresh produce industry primarily because of their close geographical proximity. Subsequently, it’s become an everyday occurrence to buy produce imported from Holland in a British supermarket.“The relationship is still so strong because of the increased need of UK businesses to reduce costs and at the same time maintain their market position through the high service level Dutch businesses can bring,” says Wilco van den Berg, who is part of the marketing team at fruit producer GroentenFruit Huis. “This gives an extra added value in these times of great uncertainty.“As a UK business you can reliably order in the morning and have fresh fruit and veg delivered to your door before midnight. This allows for low stock and you can still maintain high flexibility in the market with a long shelf life. The produce grown in the Netherlands is also of high quality and complies with the latest standards as demanded by UK customers.”Last year, the top five exported types of fresh produce from Holland to the UK were tomatoes (€279m), sweet peppers (€203m), cucumbers (€102m), onions (€74m) and avocados (€50m). And this strong relationship will proudly be on display at this year’s London Produce Show and Conference, which runs from June 5th to the 7th at London’s Grosvenor House, with Dutch exhibitors out in force. One of them, Henny van de Wetering of green veg supplier Valstar, says 7.1% of the Netherlands’ total imports and exports now goes to the UK. For Valstar it’s even more important, with 23% of its products exported to the UK market.HARD CHALLENGES AHEADWetering admits Brexit is putting a pressure on this historically fruitful union and has a few concerns about what’s on the horizon. “We must take into account that a hard Brexit is almost unavoidable. We prepare for the worst scenario but also hope for a workable solution.“If a hard Brexit will take place, all the business between the United Kingdom and European Union will be covered by the WTO (World Trade Organization). This means customs declarations must be made again, import rates will be applied and customs controls must be held at the border, which will result in longer waiting times, higher costs and more administration.”As a result of things going through the WTO rather than the EU, he says there’s a possibility of stricter regulations being imposed on both imports and exports, which means they might have to be checked multiple times. ‘Cooperation, communication and education’ key … You might also be interested in “Stricter requirements may be imposed to the quality of products in terms of import and export,” he says. “As a fruit and vegetable exporter, we will have to prove that our products meet the required quality by means of a phytosanitary certificate. This certificate is a statement in which the authorities of the country of origin declare that these products are healthy and do not suffer from a disease. The customs in the EU will have to assess the declaration and decide if the products can or cannot be exported.“But the products have to meet the requirements of the United Kingdom, as well. So when the products arrive at the terminal or port, it is possible that the customs want to check the documents or products once again. This can cause longer waiting times for our products to arrive at the destination, which will dent the freshness of the product and therefore create more waste.”These are concerns shared by Berg, who says interference in the supply chain could diminish reliability. He believes the biggest challenge will “be for the industry to sit together with their respective governments on how to ensure that official standards have been met with a systematic approach rather than on a consignment-by-consignment basis; for grouped transport this would be disastrous. It’s just a pity that bi-lateral talks between our governments are out of the question because of the current political situation.”VALUE REMAINS ON BOTH SIDESHowever, Berg also sees the value in respecting the decision of the British people to leave the EU and says Dutch suppliers must do what they can to help the UK find the best possible solution.“We feel it remains important to show that we respect the political decisions that have been taken and that the best way to move forward is to find solutions for the new reality,” Berg says. “Only then can we secure a healthy produce industry in the interest of the UK consumer, who like every human being, needs access to healthy, sustainable produce for a fair price.”There’s a sense that despite the obvious disadvantages from Brexit, no one wants these two nations’ great relationship to end and will do everything it takes to create a good outcome. A large number of fruit and veg sold in the UK is imported, with 84% of fruit and 43% of vegetables eaten in the UK in 2017 imported from the EU and non-EU countries. A team of researchers from the University of Liverpool and Imperial College London found that under a no-deal Brexit, the cost of bananas would rise by approximately 17%, citrus fruits by 14% and tomatoes by 15%. Wetering says this reality means the UK will have to do everything in its power to minimize any risk of prices rising, something they can only do by working closely with the Dutch, a country happy to remain a close ally.“We are continuously looking for new opportunities in terms of new varieties, more sustainable package solutions, which is becoming more and more a topic, and transport possibilities. We’re also looking to innovate when it comes to our relationship with the UK, which takes about a quarter of our business.“Since the UK is not self-sufficient at all, it is extremely important to have a close relationship and to anticipate in an efficient way the needs of the UK consumer. With our knowledge, innovations and logistical structure, I believe the Dutch can fulfill this need.”DUTCH ON DISPLAYValstar and Holland Fresh Group are among a host of Dutch companies that will be exhibiting or represented at the London Produce Show next week.

entertainment industry Related News 36-year-old Vinay Jaiswal with more than 1100 corporate films and audio-visuals under his name never thought that his 6:18 minutes short film ‘Jai Hind’ will be the next trending thing on social media and overnight he will be the talking point of entertainment industry Kolkata born Vinay who is director by profession once wished to be an IITian but gradually realized that his interest was in films and since then he was determined to make flicks his source of livelihood In an exclusive conversation with IndianExpresscom the director and owner of Kreative Wings Studio talks about the idea behind the short film and what was the most difficult thing in completion of the project Q With more than 1 million views on You Tube Jai Hind is the news buzz in the industry Did you expect this kind of response Vinay: (Laughs) Absolutely not I knew that what I was approaching was sensible with a noble intent and it will be appreciated but never thought that it will trend on social media all over and even the media organizations will give it so much of prominence I am humbled and this has given me a push as a creative person to do more to my society Even with ‘Jai Hind’ my idea was not to earn money but to thank those souls who were passionate enough to gift us the free air to survive on this land Q How did this idea strike you Vinay: I wrote the script on 22nd July and within 20 days this short film was made With independence day around the corner I was thinking that we all keep talking about freedom But did we ever thought what would have been the scenario if we were not blessed with this freedom So there I got stuck and then this story took birth And once I was done my motive was to portray it through some brilliant actors who had strong sensibilities and could contest against injustice then manoj Bajpai came to my mind Q Raveena Tandon and Manoj Bajpai both of them come from different school of film in terms of work they have done How did this paring happen Vinay: The casting director of the film and also a close friend of mine from NSD helped me to connect with Manoj Bajpai I narrated him the story over phone he found it interesting and agreed to work on the project After our first meeting it was Manoj who proposed Raveena’s name for the female character and asked me if I would like to cast her I meet Raveena narrated her the screenplay and she gained to do the film Q In India short films still face funding and marketing issues How difficult it was for you to get the things on floor Vinay: That is extremely difficult when it comes to short film making For this project I was very much determined with ‘no money making and no money taking’ formula I wanted only those who were willing to work with same dedicationI discussed the film with Boring Brand a creative agency owned by Anshul Sushil and Akriti Bhargav and based in Gurgaon I was of strong opinion that there should be no brand connect in the film and that’s why we wanted someone with same passion to join us and then OYO Room a client of Boring Brand came on board and Abhinav from the team understood my thought and we were able to produce the film Strangely on the first day of the shoot there was fire and it was pack-up time I am thankful to the entire crew who took the call and few of them did not even charge for the loss I think the intent was correct so things kept falling in place and today I am getting calls for bigger projects Q The social media is filed with comments like melodrama jingoism and unpleasant What is your take on such response Vinay: I welcome it all with open arms I have been tracking the response on social media and I too read few comments filed with anger As an artist I am open to criticism The film is my way of expressing gratitude to those brave soldiers and if a particular section feels it is not correct I apologize to them but at the same time who feels it’s a good attempt I am thankful to them for recognizing my efforts In both the cases I have learnt as an artist and it will help me to grow For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt
