The Constitution of India declares the nation state's common goal - to secure to all its citizens, justice, liberty, equality and fraternity. However, serious problems that beset the judicial system make it largely dysfunctional, unaccountable, inaccessible and insensitive, especially to the poor. The film is an attempt to decipher the judicial process in India from the standpoints of the all the stake holders. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOfssH9JOIkBhal Khabar

Stanley Ka Dabba
|Director: Amol Gupte|
Stanley is a fourth grader who is very popular amongst his friends. He is talented and is liked by his teachers. Ms. Rosy is highly astonished and impressed with his writing capability, speaking skills and creativity. However, he never brings his lunch box or 'dabba'. 'Khadoos' (miser), as he is popularly called, is a Hindi teacher who does not bring his own dabba but likes to eat others' lunch. Stanley's friends share their lunch with him by hiding from Khadoos. Khadoos eventually finds them on the terrace and warns Stanley to bring his own lunch or stop coming to school. Stanley misses school for a few days and his absence is felt by his teachers and school mates. One fine day, Stanley brings his dabba packed with mouth-watering items for Khadoos. Khadoos realises his mistake and quits the school. Stanley's performance in an inter-school festival is appreciated by everybody. Ms. Rosy (Divya Dutta) offers Stanley a ride to his home, but he refuses and says that his mother is waiting for him in her car. Afterwards its the school's principal who drops him at a place as Stanley rushes towards his residence. Towards the end, the reason for Stanley's lack of a dabba is revealed(which is that he is an orphan and works in a small hotel). From the next day on wards Stanley starts bringing the leftover from the hotel, which comprises of tasty dishes made at the hotel and shares his dabba with everyone and lies to everyone how his mother cooked the food. As the movie ends, Stanley looks at his mother's picture and tell her good night. His mother's resemblance to Ms. Rosy tells why he liked that teacher of his so much. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tg-6MO9HcJU&feature=fvst Laal Band Laal is a musical band from Pakistan known for singing socialist political songs, especially on the poetry written by leftist Urdu poets such as Faiz Ahmed Faiz and Habib Jalib. The band received mainstream attention during the Lawyers' Movement, in which it led support to the reinstatement of the then deposed Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and the restoration of democracy in Pakistan. In just one year the band has gained recognition all over Pakistan. They have performed in almost all the major cities as well as many smaller towns. On their fanclub page, Shahram has invited all to join the "Laal Tehreek", a revolutionary movement of young and enthusiastic revolutionaries committed to the emancipation of the people. Reminiscent of another great Pakistani band Junoon, Laal has not only managed to reconnect the people of Pakistan to the forgotten revolutionary socialist poets, but also introduced them to the youth. The youth will invariably play an important role in the politics of the country in the years to come. Surprisingly, the band has avoided criticisms for its leftist tendencies and has enjoyed mainstream success without having its material challenged by the public or media. Laal has complained that the Pakistani media, in an instance of self-censorship, has refused to air the video of its song Jhoot ka Uncha Sar because it is deemed to be critical of the Pakistan Army. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Brtguo0BTtIRobert Georgio Enrico
