As the old adage goes - ‘a picture speaks a thousand words’, and these images from the Film and Television Institute of India in Pune, give the outside world more than just an idea of the mini revolution that’s taking place inside the FTII campus right now.

Street art, protest songs, midnight addas, vociferous press conferences and an impromptu social media control room - the students at FTII seem to be in no mood to back down. They are making sure that both Gajendra Chauhan and the government get their message loud and clear.

Get a feel of the action as it’s happening from ground zero.
