The Government is acting so senselessly that now it has all become like a bad, a very bad quality of film. It has become an annoying and unacceptable farce. But farce it maybe, it surely is not a film, it is real life and there are people who are suffering… suffering because of a range of bigoted ideas wrapped in empty patriotic beliefs that has been nurturing differences among people from generations. This will go on and on and will affect every individual on this planet in some way, if we refuse to understand each other, if we deny looking for the truth on our own level and if we don’t take a stand. Every bit counts!

‘In Defence of our Present – On giving up the National Awards’ is a booklet released by Solidarity with #FTII, a group of filmmakers who came together to protest against the blatant disregard by this government for plurality, tolerance and secularism in the country as well as their attempts to destroy the excellence of institutions like Film and Television Institute of India. The booklet brings together statements by filmmakers on returning their National Awards as well as essays on the struggle of FTII students.
