Gratitude πŸ™πŸ™ These claps and a full house for a film screenning ...what else can a filmmaker ask for !!! Our documentary A Sticky Wicket had a special screening this teachers day at the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation...the film is about sports and girls and how the smallest act of courage has been literally life changing for the girls who dared step out of their homes. The film is special because we made it in the year when i started my new innings as an elected politician and didnt really know if i would ever make a film again. I was researching on the colossol failure of Swach Bharat when i came across this story...where the girls from this slum would not be given food or water after 2pm so that they would not need to go to the toilet. Molestation...rape and murder abound in this colony on the outskirts of Delhi and yet these girls emerge ..determined to play !! Indebted to @fazalkidwai who as co director did most of the heavy lifting ☺️ The next screening is at India International Centre on the 17th of September.2pm #documentaryfilm #astickywicket #screening #filmscreening #film #filmmakers #brother #coworkers #impact #filmsforimpact #rajivgandhifoundation #sports #sportsfilm #psbt #indianmovie #indian #india #delhi #shahbaddiary #girls #empowerement #girlswhoplay #cricket #letgirlsplay #freedom #free #teachers #students

He's watching day 2 of New Zealand cricket and looking forward to day 3 tomorrow. This sports thing may have gone too far. An 8-year-old American shouldn't be counting overs and critiquing bowlers. #Jojo #cricket #astickywicket
