Guwahati, November 25: Campus Talks, an initiative by G Plus in association with Airtel, organised an interactive session with actress Zerifa Wahid for the students of Asian Institute of Management Technology, Guwahati. Jayanta Goswami, HOD, Department of Mass Communication felicitated Zerifa and welcomed her to the institute.
The actress visited the AIMT campus and spoke about how theatre as an art form has evolved and started catering to various classes of people. Speaking on the topic, Zerifa informed the youth about the various forms of theatres, its history and evolution till date. Particularly mentioning about the survival of theatres, she said “Anything would be dying art, if people are not interested in it. It is very important for schools and colleges to have sessions on theatre for the students to cultivate the art form and develop an interest towards it.”
Campus talks are a new phenomenon in the city, which was started by G plus six months back. It primarily aims at creating an open platform for students to discuss social issues. An open debate forum is also provided to students, where they can put forward their views. Eminent persons from different walks of life are invited to various colleges every week, who enlighten the youth on topics of national importance and interest. Through campus talks, they aim to get the youngsters’ opinion about the government and its policies on various political and social issues, as it is important to know the changes the younger generation seeks or wants for the betterment of the society.
During her interaction with the students, Zerifa also paid her tribute to eminent film personality Late Biju Phukan. “With Biju da’s demise, an era ended” she said.
