Workshop on Social Scientific Temper

On 22nd September, 2018 a Workshop on “Social Scientific Temper” was organized for the students of S.Y.B.Com. Division A and B. The organizers were the resource persons from CMCA CAMPUS YUVA Citizenship and Life Skills Education Ms. Effy Acharya and Ms. Brinda Ganesh. The workshop was organized in room number 401 from 6.45 p.m. to 8.15 p.m.

The Social Scientific Temper Workshop is part of a series of workshops announced for college students. The class was divided into groups. One group was sent out of the class. Four students volunteered to read the case on hand. There was a narrator and three students played the role of citizens from different groups of society.

The narrator began with stating the real story where four young men form another state living in Maharashtra, working in Maharashtra visited the police station to give the officers some personal details about themselves as this was a requirement for their job. The police officers received the young men well, spoke to them respectfully and the formalities were completed. The four young men had to leave Maharashtra and go back to their home town in another state to attend a family wedding. They were away for a month. This was the true story.

A news reporter looking for a juicy story reports it like this – Four young men from another state, working in Maharashtra were held up by the police for questioning. The boys have absconded since then. The police are looking for them as they are involved in a criminal case.

A Municipal Corporater visited a housing society to address them before the local elections. In his talk he narrated the story stating that many young boys from outside states are roaming around the city. They work in the city and live on rent in housing societies. These boys are anti-social elements and criminals. The Corporater warned the society members not to allow boys from different states to enter the society. He asked them to be careful and vigilant about such instances. He wanted to protect members from such criminals.

A member from the housing society hearing this speech immediately sends a WhatsApp message to his friends in different housing societies announcing the arrival of criminal young boys from outside states living on rent in housing societies, posing to work in offices in Mumbai. Do not let them enter your society! These boys are criminals. BEWARE BOYS FROM OUTSIDE STATES THEY ARE CRIMINALS.

The students in the class were told the real story by the narrator. The group standing outside did not hear the true story. They were called in when the other members performed their part as the news reporter, Municipal Corporater and Member from the housing society. On listening to them the group that entered the class were asked to form their opinion on what had actually happened. They were influenced by the three stories they heard and believed that there were young boys from an outside state who were criminals.

The entire class listened in pin drop silence and appreciated the gap between reality and what was reported FROM DIFFERENT SOURCES in every instance. The students were called up one by one and asked to comment on what they understood. They explained that each of the characters in the case had twisted the facts to serve their own purpose. The news reports wanted a juicy story, the Municipal Corporater wanted votes and the member of the housing society wanted to connect with his friends with an interesting message. NONE of the stories were true.

The workshop concluded. The objective of the workshop to understand the importance of SCIENTIFIC TEMPER was achieved. Students realised that Reasoning and questioning the source of information is very important. Do not believe blindly what you hear and see. Find out the source of the information and question its authenticity before you believe anything you hear.

This was the message given to the students in the workshop.

The feedback of the students participating in the workshop are attached along with the pictures taken in the workshop.

Two Day Workshop on Pre-Marital Counselling 2017

Date: 28th and 29th July, 2017

This special discourse was jointly organized by the NSS unit of our college and Women Development Cell in association with Stree Mukti Sanghatana on the 28th and 29th July, 2017 in our college. This programme was the first of its kind. About 70 students (boys and girls) from first year, second year and third year participated in the sessions held on both the days of the workshop.

On the first day, the 28th July 2017 the session was inaugurated by the Principal Dr. Padma Rangan by lighting the lamp. The Principal Dr. Padma Rangan also introduced and felicitated the guest of honour and the resource person Ms. Sangeeta Saraf with a floral tribute.

The opening session was delivered by Ms. Sangeeta Saraf on the topic ‘Gender Equality’.The speaker highlighted the need of considering both the genders at par in physical and mental abilities. She underlined that the time had come to respect mutually and appreciate the strengths in each other. It was also pointed out that, today, females cannot be side lined in any area as was done in the past. The session was a strong attempt to erase the mind-set existing even in the young generation which was found to have a reserved discriminative mentality. However the entire session was thought provoking and very lively. The students came forward with a few queries and the speaker clarified them very well.

The second session of the day was on selection of life partner. This was also very interesting and very much interactive. The speaker then motivated the students to imagine the scene of their proposing to their life partner. After some time the speaker collected their demands made to their partner at the time of proposal. Each demand was jotted down on the board and analysed. Later she sang songs related to each of the points written on the board. Towards the end of the session the students were found to be very positive in selecting the partner to lead a happy married life.

The programme was concluded after the vote of thanks proposed by the Convenor of the workshop Asst. Prof. Tushar A. Pawar.

The second day’s curtain raising was on marital adjustment by Ms. Savita Kurhade. The speaker, first of all, laid down a few case studies regarding the tendencies to get divorced after a short married life. The speaker opened out the possible reasons and the strong one of them is weakness in mutual understanding. She advocated the need of open talks about the thought about the partner and feelings to be respected. The other reason for separation being not recognizing or supporting the decisions taken by either-or. In-fact the partners can counsel each other whenever a stress or strain disturbed the relation. Giving mutual respect is only solution for a prospective married life. After formally winding up the session the house was open for question-answer time. The students well utilized this period to get clear many of their confusing thoughts which they observed in other family relations. They did not wish to repeat in their future life. The session was wound up after vote of thanks proposed by student representative Ms. Gazala Sheikh.

The second session of the final day was on Sexuality Education and legal aspects by Ms. Pradnya Saraf from Stree Mukti Sanghatana. This was more or less on anatomic knowledge imparting about the mis-concepts in about reproductive system. The speaker detailed each segment of getting fertility and pregnancy. She also gave an idea about X and Y chromosomes and classification in the birth of boy and or girl child. She also enlightened the students by giving some idea about the infertility and the possible reasons and also the treatment availability. She also lessoned the extra care and need of keeping the reproductive organs and areas with great hygiene and cleanliness for preventing venereal diseases.

In the legal aspect sessions she started with the careful documentation of marriage related papers to ensure correct nomination to safe guard the survivors. If anything fatal occurs to anyone. Before the session concluded there was a brief interactive feedback given and take round up. The feedback from the students was very satisfactory.

The final days all the sessions came to an end and programme was disbursed after vote of thanks by Principal Dr. Padma Rangan.
