The students of Dwarkadas J. Sanghvi College of Engineering took a step towards social development by increasing the awareness about a wide range of social issues. This was done in the form of Street Play organized on 14th March as a pre-fest event of PARICHAY 2013. Parichay is the annual social and cultural festival that is being celebrated on 21st, 22nd and 23rd March this year.
The Inter Department Street Play saw various departments narrating stories that threw light on raging issues of the country. Dowry System, Female Foeticide, Eve Teasing, Female Slavery, Educate Women were chosen as the theme topics by the departments to spread the message and ensure respect to women. These plays highlighted in an effective manner the urgent need to protect the dignity and integrity of women in India. Also the theme based on Item Numbers refused to accept the derogatory terms and ways used to project women. It was a voice against disrespect shown to women. They also brought the importance of joint families so as to retain the traditional Indian culture and family values.
