Ms. Runa facilitated a discussion on a video of kids performing on the theme of “Save Trees”, while the audience watched with tears welling up in their eyes. The five- minute film threw light upon the growing industrialization and the insensitivity of the human race towards the nature.
The burning down of forests, the resources being polluted and the negligence of it all has not only caused a depletion in oxygen but also the hopes of upcoming generations. As the lyric quoted “Thori si mitti, thora sa paani, tera isme kya lagta hai”, it motivated everyone to do their part in making the Earth green again.

In this knowledge intellect of the participants for the topic was debriefed.The questions was based on sub topics like the person associated with design feature, Semanticity, metalanguage, number of design feature etc.


The central objective of the online quiz competition was to evaluate the participants’ knowledge on the topic- ‘Design features of language’.

The movie “Mee Sindhutai Sapkal” (2010) is a biographical account of Sindhutai Sapkal, also known as Maai.

The film shows Maai showering motherly affection on thousands of orphans, despite her own mother ruthlessly marrying her off to an older man when she was barely ten. The various shades were portrayed in the roles of Sindhutai’s cruel mother, the cow who protected her during labour, the bai who took her in and Sindhutai herself, who became a social activist after all the trauma she had been through.
The movie depicted that true motherhood isn’t merely taking care of one’s own kids, but giving love to every lost child in need. Moreover, it showed the contrast in the roles of the men in her life, her father who supported her until the very end and her husband who abandoned her.


A mother could be unfair at times, like her childhood implied, but above all, it is selfless, like Sindhutai nurturing the homeless kids before her own child.
“Mother”, the only person whose love is unconditional, pure and endless. The person who does the work of twenty, for free.

The department Communicative English and Media Studies conducted a value education class on the 27thof January, 2022for semester-2 on the topic, Don’t judge a book by its cover. The message delivered by the session was that don’t judge people for the choices they make when you don’t know the options they had to choose from.

Keeping these words in view, the class representative showed the video about the harsh reality of some sections of our community, where children who should study at the age of 10-12 are child – labouring, just to support their livelihood but have keen interest in studies and therefore after they are done with their work of selling books in train they also manage to attend school.
Runa Ma’am shared her thoughts on how often we judge people by their looks, caste or by what they wear. It gives a negative impact on other’s as well as ourselves.

Then, one of the girls shared her experience that how she judged everyone in our class before knowing how they are from inside. Concluding the class, Runa Ma’am shared her opinion that different people go through different struggles, we should never treat them badly and always be kind to each other.

‘You’ve got to find what you love’

Key Points :

  • Stay Hungry.
  • Stay Foolish (learning).
  • Value Education Class

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

The Department of Communicative English and Media Studies conducted a discussion on DSE 5 Dissertation class on December 4th, 2021. The facilitator Dr. DK Singh started the class by introducing the topic:  Dissertation on Research Methodology. He followed the class by discussing the introduction of the Research study, the methodology of how one can write the hypothesis, scope or range of coverage of the study , analysis ,interpretation and the findings of the research study.  The class ended with a discussion on the recommendations and limitations of the research study.

The Department of Communicative English and Media Studies organised a value education class on December 16th, 2021. The facilitator Mr Prashant Ravi began the class by showing a video. The video demonstrated was  , “Lunch with God”. The video was about how  often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. People come into our lives for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. Embrace all equally! He concluded the class by explaining how much sharing is important and how much anyone can affect us. So, always be kind and helpful to others.

“Try not to become a person of success, but rather try to become a person of value”, said Einstein.

And it was Patna Women’s College’s CEMS Department that turned this quote into a learning opportunity for the students.

The Department had organised a Value Education session. The class began with a video clip that was displayed to the students. It was an inspiring film of a ‘Kabadiwala’ who, despite not having access to fundamental educational materials such as books, had gained knowledge by studying books that were discarded by others. It was a fantastic video that demonstrated that there are always ways to reach your objectives; all you need is the desire.

Mr. Ajay Kumar, a faculty member, led an interactive conversation after the video. His own experiences and stories taught students about life’s challenges and the desire to study. He also discussed the significance of even the tiniest characters in our life.

The second video was about ‘how can we lend a helping hand to needy people.’
The class was concluded by our Head of Department,Dr.Tauseef Hassan that ‘The Joy of Giving is not just about helping someone financially but it is also to bring a smile on someone’s face. We have to treat everyone equally and with no discrimination on any basis to respect their opinion’.
