Sometimes, certain things catch you off-guard. For me, the Must बोल experience has (already) been nothing short of a roller-coaster ride that has (already) given me more than just my money’s worth. And considering my investment has basically just been time, I cannot begin to describe the wonders it has done for me.
One particular exercise which Pramada Menon made us do during the Must बोल gender workshop was a situation based exercise. Since it cleared a lot of things in my head, I would like to share it on the blog. The situation goes like this, there is a village on the banks of a river and across the river lives a man who has been prosecuted for being a rapist, but the court has never found him guilty. So one day a lady goes for some work on the other side of the village. Its late evening and it starts to rain heavily, the river swells up.
One of the most enjoyable parts of the face to face selection process of the campaign is when the group plays Toxic River. After the first round of introductions, where everyone is a little nervous; and before the arguments of the great debate on gender begins, Toxic River is a very loud and fun interlude. The game is simple, the group is divided into two teams, and each team has to cross the 'imaginary' toxic river on three boats in fifteen minutes.
Pick a group of 30 who want to understand gender and make films. The brief was simple enough, and so we started. For someone interested in gender, young people, college gossip, fads, and meeting new people, the selections were quite the party!
