Director: Altaf Mazid | Producer: Zabeen Ahmed
Focus Years: 2005 | Country: India
A writer looks for a bit of good news in the days of the Assam Movement (1985-90), when the youth had sunk to the lowest depths of degradation, and civilized emotions seemed to be wiped completely out of existence. Everywhere prevailed only lust and cowardly violence.
Newspapers had chilling pages of depressing stories and to read them was to be overcome by an even greater feeling of horror and helplessness.
Finally the writer discovers a small piece of news item in a morning paper that gives him hope as it brings him tales of inspiring people who survive the troubled times by piously and devoutly reading their holy scriptures.
