An old English proverb states that “One should practice what one preaches.” This goes true for very few people in this world, of which one is Mr. Salim Diwan. Just giving great speeches and making others hear them too doesn’t make you a responsible person, but having the conviction and belief in words and actions will only help to change the overall mentality of society by creating an unshakable belief amongst them.
Only a clear vision and genuine efforts to achieve the goals will make a difference in this society. There is a belief in rural India (where child marriages were once common) about the upbringing of a child, who is always considered a burden and is only meant to be married off at the earliest possible opportunity because parents never thought or believed in their very existence after getting them married off. This gave rise to a noble campaign by the prime minister of India to embark upon getting girls’ rights and education so that they have a better life, a better future, and a say in society. Thus, the “Beti Bachao Beti Padhao” campaign was started by the Indian Prime Minister as a mode of raising awareness towards eradicating the issue of girl child infanticide and providing free education to every girl as her birthright.
SHORT MOVIES PLAY BIG ROLES
As per the current trend, people are moving more toward online work than offline work and are more interested in all kinds of virtual entertainment that they can enjoy in the comfort of their homes. OTT platforms and short movies are the perfect way of entertaining yourself these days, as it doesn’t take much time to complete the production procedures and it connects directly to the topic with no other distractions.
As the “Education and Rights of the Girl Child” campaign gained traction, Mr. Salim Diwan produced some short films highlighting the plight of girl children and decided to direct his campaign more aggressively to spread the message that women must be treated with respect and high regard as the most important pillars of this society, where they play very sensitive and important roles as daughter, mother, sister, wife, and so on. He believes that women are the primary caretakers of children and elders, besides being the leaders and administrators in the family.
One of Mr. Salim Diwan’s recent short movies on this topic has won many accolades and awards, which reflects the acceptance of his work. This has inspired him to do more work in the field of women’s empowerment and the protection of girls’ basic human rights. Only a person who is true to his principles, passionate, sincere, and has a lion’s heart can do this without having any expectations of any kind. It’s well proven that all deeds done without expectations and with all sincerity go down in history as true philanthropy.
A DOORSTEP MESSENGER: Salim Diwan
Mr. Salim Diwan, an actor by profession, was so impressed with this campaign since it matched his vision and foresight that he decided to create awareness in this society by making short films that served as a platform for exposing this thought process so that the same can be properly communicated by sharp examples to the masses.
In the current times when documentary movies, web series, and short movies are well accepted by the masses, Mr. Salim Diwan decided to use these platforms as key ways to spread his message to end such narrow-minded beliefs and took on the responsibility to make it happen on his own by enlisting the help of his production team.
It is well known in social circles that he loves doing movies and plays, which are not only his hobbies but his acute passion, and this has finally helped him to connect to the masses to spread awareness about these social causes at the ground level, which, when precisely explained, can be termed “Mr. Salim Diwan has become a Doorstep Messenger.”
WILL KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK
This platform that he has created with his hard work, for which he and his entire production crew toiled day and night, has been widely accepted as one of the torchbearers for these social causes.
Mr. Salim Diwan exhibits tremendous willpower, considers women as a form of Goddess Shakti, and is known to treat them with immense respect, aside from helping the needy live life with self-respect and dignity, which he inherited from his late father, Shri S. D. Chopdar, who was also an ardent follower of these principles. His work on the “Education and Rights of the Girl Child” campaign is just a small glimpse of his social work forays.
