Tata-Dhan Academy: PDM


Programme in Development Management


Aside from core courses, students at the Academy also get to take elective courses to give them additional training or to give them a chance to specialize in a particular area. For PDM 7, one of the courses we offered as an elective was “Audio/Visual Communication for Development”—a course in which students can learn how to plan, film, and edit short films.

Seven students enrolled in this elective when it was offered to PDM 7: Bharathi S, Balu I, Karthik Chandra Prushti, Lalitha R, Rani O R, Shyamal Santra, and Vinod Kumar Pandey. They created a short video, Towards…, which was designed around the following Albert Einstien quotation:

Every day, on hundreds of occasions, I remind myself that my mental and physical life depends on the toil of other persons—living and dead. The food that nourishes me is grown by other people. My dresses are all made by other people. Likewise whatever knowedge that I have gathered since my childhood days—has been acquired from other people. So I must try and repay whatever I have received and am receiving.

I hope you enjoy the video!

    Hi Janakiraman,

    You can easily access the video online at Google video (here’s the direct link: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-8227693872833804694) and, from there, download the video for offline viewing or for viewing on an iPod or a similar device.
