Photography gained the interest of many scientists and artists from its inception. The first permanent photograph was an image produced in 1826 by the French inventor Nicéphore Niépce. Scientists have used photography to record and study movements, such as Eadweard Muybridge’s study of human and animal locomotion in 1887. Artists are equally interested by these aspects. Military, police and security forces use photography for surveillance, recognition and data storage. Photography is used to preserve memories of favorites and as a source of entertainment.
The commercial photographic world can be broken down to:
- Advertising photography
- Fashion and glamour photography
- Still life photography
- Editorial photography
- Portrait and wedding photography
- Fine art photography
- Landscape photography
The market for photographic services demonstrates the aphorism “one picture is worth a thousand words” which has an interesting basis in the history of photography. Magazines and newspapers, companies putting up web sites, advertising agencies and other groups pay for photography.
So, keeping all these views and interests in mind, they have generated a “Photography Club”. hope that this endeavor shall not only broaden the horizons of students but also nurture and build up their hidden talents in photography along with their academic skills.
This club has been started to develop acute movie watching skills to nurture depth in film viewing and appreciation. As is well known, India is the largest film producing country in the world. Around nine hundred films in 16 different languages are made in the country every year. Close to one hundred-twenty satellite television channels are currently operating in the country.
The focus of the Film Club is to screen films of merit that are not normally available in the commercial circuit, experimental works and art house cinema. Two to Four films are screened every month and festivals and retrospectives organized regularly focusing on the work of well-known directors, actors, genre or country. Film festivals on particular genre have included, among others, a focus on women directors and adaptations of literary classics.
An ongoing concern of the Club has been to provide a forum to discuss documentary and experimental films, screened in the presence of the director and followed by discussions from the floor on some of the key issues raised in the films. These documentaries deal with a wide range of subjects from art and architecture, the environment, issues of politics and society, gender and questions of identity.
This club’s focus is to explore and seek adventure, and seeks to go where (at least) not too many have gone before. The Club brings together enthusiasts interested in treks and adventure. The club’s activities range from simple social gatherings, to exotic trips such as visiting the Himalayan foot hills. The focus is on in the 'ing' in living. As in hiking, kayaking, biking, rafting, climbing, camping, skiing, touring, bungee jumping, parasailing, and skydiving. The club generally offers introductory to intermediate level adventures, and also encourages members to get together with other members of like tastes. Apart from trekking, the Club organizes Desert Trekking; snow skiing, white water rafting etc. The Club also conducts expeditions to peaks in the Garhwal/Kumaon Himalayas area.
The mission of the club is to develop strong links with our ecology and develop a holistic understanding of recycle-to-recycle existence in harmony with nature. The club seeks to preserve the rural characteristics and natural diversity of the threatened lands. The club offers encouragement in finding and identifying our native trees, flowers, birds and animals, and present programs that will reflect those interests.
The club wishes to promote a lifetime of interest and pleasure for both active and armchair nature enthusiasts. The club also seeks to conserve nature's heritage by education and direct conservation efforts and spread awareness about good environmental practices, like, for ex. asking for a ban on plastic within Ramjas College!
The book reading club has no boundaries. It has a clear aim: to move beyond the prescribed syllabi. The club offers a platform and opportunity to not just discuss Books, but to exchange ideas and much more. The objective is to open up as many windows of imagination possible for a student. It seeks to address the problem of reading being confined to a prescription. Readers at the club however, have the liberty to pick up any book to discuss it. This fits into the larger scheme of education, which should be a liberating experience, not a confining and constraining one. The only prescription at the book reading club is to read the book, be it a classic or a contemporary one. It could be on zoology or globalization, ancient Indian art or development studies, fourteenth century Persian poetry or the latest developments in the world of science. There are no barriers at all.
