Your chance to sound off

THIS week, serious-minded young women of Ethiraj College will observe Human Rights Day with a two-day event. The college is the first institute in Chennai to offer Human Rights and Duties as a postgraduate course. Issues concerning rights will be discussed at the event. The Department of HR and Duties Education will celebrate `Jagriti', its association day on December 10 and 11, to mark the occasion.

The Law Minister, D. Jayakumar, will be the chief guest at the inaugural function.

An inter-collegiate debate on `Uniform Civil Code' will set the tone. Two films, one on `anti-abortion' (Silent Scream) and another on `AIDS' (State of Denial) come next.

On the second day, a panel discussion on the challenges faced in integrating the differently-abled into the mainstream and an intercollegiate quiz will be held.

Now that's not everyone's cup of tea, may be. But there are those who care...!
