Educating a Girl Child

“ I ask you all so earnestly to open girl’s schools in every village and try to uplift them. If the Conditions of women are raised, then their children will, by their noble actions, glorify the name of the Country. “ —Swami Vivekananda

Education is one of the most critical areas of empowerment for women, It is sad that some communities still discriminate against the education of the girl child.
Parents  play the most crucial role in the education of the girl child, it is important that parents are convinced first the importance of the girl child education.
In far remote rural ares many parents hesitate to send their girl child to schools as most of the schools are far off raising concern for their safety.

Education for a girl child means making the next generation well educated, full of virtues, free from the useless superstitions, confident and capable to do something good for the family, for the society and for the country as a whole.

Conceptualising A Day Shoot with Special Children has been an  heart warming experience till date.....

These Visually Imapired Children ignited positive energy that whereever they went the surroundings radiated with hope and love.....

Ready and eagerly waiting to be in the mainstream of life with just a little support from their fellowmen would make them realize their dreams and true potential......truly captured by this beautiful song written by Dr Wad, composed by Nilesh Moharir, sung by Neha Rajpal, Madhuri Karmarkar, Mangesh Borgaonkar and beautiful children from the NAB and other NGOs. Song directed by Bharati Makhija, cinematography by Raju Makhija.
This song was released by the Hon. Governor of Maharashtra S. Sankarnarayanan in Jan 2012.
Tribute to the spirit of life and never give up attitude of the specially disabled individuals.

Shooting with Children.....for Born Smart ....An amazing journey...

Enrapturing Childhood....(Bharati Makhija)

Raju and I, along with 3 cameramen,a total crew of 6 , tagged along for a challenging task ahead... Teaching toddlers through play and capturing those moments was not a child's play...Due to my passion for direction and my love for Tiny Tots made this experience truly a mind blogging experience of my life.

On the first day around toddlers, we felt like we were entering their world, which was zooming in exploring new surroundings and people, sleeping, eating , crying ....Had to keep a watchful eye on their varied moods. Every moment was different .Initially had to familiarize myself to them and when they got going in their playful mood it was my work time. I was lost in their world as it took us 98days to shoot 288 webisodes, time stood still, every baby has been such a special, unique, delightful, amazing and a learning experience, that no wonder toddlers are a bundle of joy and a Gift from God..
