Profile Information

Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
I am a professional social worker, working in India in the human rights and arts field. I was educated in Loyola College, Chennai University in India. When I was in school I was in YCS a student movement and when I was in University I was in AICUF a national student movement. YCS and AICUF are part of Pax Romana.

In YCS I was a district co ordinate and a national team member. In YCS as a school student I learned human values. As the same, I was aware of the anti social issues which were happening in India and in international level.

In AICUF I joined as a member, then later on I became a national convener. When I was in AICUF I worked in the grassroots level and in top levels. As a national student leader I led the movement for a just society and against all inhuman discriminations which happen in India. I was the father of the student rights concept in aicuf. Student rights forums basically says the “student have a say in all decisions of the college”.

Then I started working against caste and other anti social issues through media and communication. I participate actively in theater activities, short film making and in video making.

I am a very creative and articulate individual. In this process I worked with 1) Right Communications, 2) Indian Nirman Sang, 3) Center for Media social work and Research, 4) Population Services International, and 5) Dalit Foundation. As the same I am a creative adviser of 1) international movement for non formal education, 2) Facts and figure India, and 3) NILAM Trust.

Hello Sathish!
In Lebanon, there is a hierarchy of social classes - a huge gap between the poor and the extremely rich. There is also the phenomenon of zaamat (in Arabic, meaning leadership but more a cult of personnality). If you have money and-or you come from a well-known family (feudality), or you are a warlord, you have power and you can do whatever you want with others. Even with the law and public institutions. So, the similarity with the system in India is with injustice and social inequalities.

HI Sathish
Thanks for your message. I look forward to learning more about your work. I have yet to make it to India, but do hope to visit and/or do some work there some day. I have done work and writing on the intersection of arts and conflict (my dissertation was on the role of arts in peacebuilding in Bosnia-Herzegovina). I am curious if any of your films are online?

Caste system in India...
There is a similar system in Lebanon: the warlords - who are the leaders of the country -, along with the elites and religious leaders, and the 'ordinary' people who follow them and do not have a real voice, except individuals and groups emerging more and more as independant and alternative voices-paths.

Hello Sathish! Thank you for your message. Nowadays I work with young Lebanese for building peace in Lebanon, on an individual basis and collective level - especially with youth groups and NGOs. What about your work? Let us keep in touch.
