PK hai kya?!

A child is given an environment to grow- a language, a religion, a set of norms of society. Yet what happens if a grown-up has to discover all this from the beginning?

Result is this mesmerising, kind, simple, powerful and simply out-of-the-world character called PK. He embodies humanity, uses his power to reason and stuns everyone- while also having audiences in splits with his antics!

PK is 'Purely Koooooool' movie! It is hilarious, touching, saddening and sweet- all at the same time.

Over 600 million Indians defecate in the open. Lakhs of tonnes of garbage are generated each day in Indian cities, which are dumped into ever-shrinking landfills.

Yet there is a need to consider the locality, city, state, country and indeed the planet as our home. “Vasudheiva Kutumbakam”– the whole world is a family. By extension, as this family lives on Planet Earth and this is our only home, it is every human being’s responsibility to keep our living spaces clean and hygienic. Once this feeling and responsibility is heartily felt and acted upon by people, then Earth will indeed be Heaven – what with all the beneficial spill-over effects like a spiritual mind, unpolluted food and air, generation of pure thoughts and living in Harmony with Nature !

This post will first clearly demarcate reasons why sanitation and hygiene are so important for India : what are the real spin-offs in fields like health, education, productivity, innovation due to good hygiene and what are the consequences of poor hygiene. Next, it will
