EVENT
Meet the Media Veterans, is a talk series for the Instructional Media Centre, at Maulana Azad National Urdu University. It recently invited Children’s Author  Monarose Sheila Pereira, known as India’s Enid Blyton, to talk about ‘The Portrayal of children in the media’. The talk was an eye-opener and very educative.
 
The talk analyses the complex relationship between the media and the mind of the child.
Author Monarose Sheila Pereira has worked in various facets of the media and is also a media professor. Her vast knowledge and experience truly make her a versatile children’s author and yes, India’s Enid Blyton. She has indeed kept a watchful eye on the relationship between the media and children and has much to offer if you are ready to listen. Monarose rightly points out, ‘Children are our future and it is the duty of the media to improve the lives of children”.
 
Rizwan Ahmad, Director, Instructional Media Centre at MANUU (A Central University), Ministry of  Education, says, “Noted author Monarose Sheila Pereira’s talk was very enriching and thought-provoking. She rightly pointed out the stereotypical images of children in print and electronic media. Children’s images in media are not realistic and stereotypes have been created around children which is not good for any developing society.
Media has a huge impact on the lives of people therefore realistic narratives should be created around children. As children are the future of any society, this becomes yet more important to portray children in a realistic manner. Monarose, very rightly analyzed the portrayal of children in media during her extremely structured academic talk. She has truly enriched the audience on this important aspect.”
Analyzing the tremendous psychological value of the talk, Psychiatrist Dr. Nirmala Rao, from the Aavishkar Centre of Self Enrichment, observes that Author Monarose has presented the subject well with examples of how the media influences the minds of children and the various nuances of the media on children; which is very much needed to make people more aware.
 
Framroz Ghaswala, the Consultant, says, “The talk was informative and well researched. It was a delight even for professionals.”
 
Adding to the accolades is Ramesh Tekwani, Filmmaker, trainer in ethics and personal competence, and skill enhancing. He says, “I am proud of Author Monarose Sheila Pereira, who was my Media student at The Xavier Institute of Communications, some years ago and who is now known as India,’s Enid Blyton. Her talk was an amazing session. So enlightening! So comprehensive! So thorough! Spanning history, media, and mindsets. A treatise unto itself. Monarose has gone beyond the ‘portrayal’ of children in media! Instead, she has presented, layer by layer, their use or, rather, misuse by media, in media, to manipulate the masses. OMG. From a gentle student to an unassuming author of adorable tales for children, this talk for vocal revelation and advocacy was simply marvelous.
 
Thank you for an enriching, educative session; and, I dare say, a wake-up call.”

Nurture Life is a non-profit organization established with the aim of providing solution to the mental health issues which are prevalent in our society.It is founded by Farah Sarosh.NurtureLife is based in Lucknow that works in the field of Mental Health not only in India but also in other parts of the world like Constanta,Romania,Yale,USA. Nurture Life is growing towards its determined goals by overcoming rigid and tough situations because mental health problems often relate to various complex issues. We started with primary mission to reach grass root level because our conservative society people feel very uncomfortable in realizing and sharing their mental health problems with others, hence Nurture Life uses various tools of social awareness to eradicate and overcome this social stigma.

We have come up with a online talk show called ‘NurtureLife Talks with Sahar’ to be active amidst the COVID-19 times where everyone can access snippets of the life of those who have previously worked in the entertainment industry and are showcasing their talent and hard work till date and share their journey and struggles, and most importantly, share how they have gotten through their days of struggles. Our online talk show is hosted by Sahar Quaze and features a variety of artists and celebrities who have worked in the entertainment industry. We have had Lilliput Farouqui-a comedy actor and writer, Sharib Hashmi-an actor in various National Award winning films and has been in Slumdog Millionaire, an Oscar winning film,Iqbaal Rizvi-A well knowndirector, NatashaaIyer- An award winning director, producer and an actress, RJ ShaguftaBaig-a Radio AIR and a voice artist, Karan Bhangey- an entrepreneur and our most recent episode featuringDr. Aqsa Shaikh-a teacher, writer and an activist. During these conversations we dig deeper into their understanding of their respective industries and their coping mechanism which has driven them to their stage of success. Some seem to not dwell upon the negativity and others understand that the highs and lows are a part of the industry and in order to survive, one must make their mind strong enough that no matter what the setbacks are, the only way to succeed is to keep working and learn from the setbacks. While one may not necessarily agree with what they have to say, its imperative to understand that every single human being deals with their stress in their own way and if a listener is at a similar stage, these suggestions can turn out to be incredibly helpful and moreover a great learning experience. While the atmosphere regarding the entertainment industry is turning toxic and corrosive in the past few months, all we are trying to do is provide value and create positivity in the minds of our listeners.
