My take on FTII students strike

These issues aren't isolated to FTII alone. Students across the nation
need to heed Gandhi's 1940 call, walk out of the defunct
living-in-the-past institutions and start people's universities where
there is more autonomy and innovation. Here's one:

Also, we need to start curing ourselves out of the Diploma / Degree
disease. See: http://www.swaraj.org/shikshantar/healingdiplomadisease.pdf
So for FTII, I really think the students need to recognize their
innate talent and power and start a people's FTII rather than
continuing to respect the now-corrupted institution. Film making is
like the last thing that needs certification : you can easily show
proof of your excellence. Please invest your energies in creating
something new and better in this world.
