The Future of India is YOUTH
In 2020, India will become the largest youth workforce in the world, beating China. 65% of our country is under 35, but this year, 50% of that will be under 25. These are not the millennials but a new generation of young Indians, the Gen Z, who have one thing in common: they have all grown up on the mobile phone and the internet. That has given them far more awareness, understanding, and access to the world at a much younger age than any other generation before. This isn't a generation that will wait for India to change, this is the generation that will change India. Our future is Gen Z!

CINEMA | 8:15 PM
Aunty Sudha Aunty Radha
Tanuja Chandra, Anupama Mandloi, Aparna Sud
Three hours outside of the capital of India, is a village called Lahra. This film follows two widowed sisters, aged 86 and 93, who have retired to this village, whose days are spent with their adopted family of domestic help. With a rare acceptance of old-age and all that it brings, they spend their time gossiping, watching T.V., soaking in the sun and bonding with the help in a hearty sharing of community life. The film resolutely assumes the tone of this oddball group of people – a facile easy-going manner, that gazes lightly at the passing of days. And yet, from this light-heartedness, emerge lessons. Of courage and perseverance, of camaraderie and care-giving, of destiny and faith, and the most significant one: when we engage in conversations of death, we improve the quality of life.
This exhibition seeks to retrace memories and stories of the historical town of Panvel through the storytelling medium of Warli folk art.
Treasures of Panvel
A research on the architectural history and heritage of Kalyan which demands great attention and has very good potential to contribute to the urban development of the city today.
