Update on “Mozhi”

Filed under: Movie,My Other Avtaar,Society — Rajesh @ 11:10 pm

Ability Foundation tells me that the charity (they hate that word, so replace it with “fundraiser”) show of “Mozhi” has been postponed (no doubt due to “unavoidable circumstances”) to 25 February. So you have plenty of time to get in touch with them at 2445 2400 to get your donor passes.
A word about “Mozhi”. Its central character played by Jyotika is hearing impaired. So a lot of the conversation is in sign language – pretty interesting really. Imagine being able to sign your conversation. The possibilities of what you could do armed with this special code are endless!
We once suggested to a group of school Principals that sign language should be made one of the electives in high school. We argued this would help integration of people who are hearing-impaired. The Principals didn’t see it that way. They just went pale and one of them said quickly, “No way! We have enough problems in high school as it is! Think what would happen in an examination hall!”
