HYDERABAD: In its aim to raise awareness among Hyderabadis about the pressing civic issues in hand and the need to tackle them together, the GHMC along with city-based welfare organisations, Unity Mission and Happy Hyderabad, launched six 60 second short animation films today, in addition to a 5-minute song, on a host of civic themes.
K Pratap Rana, founder-director of Unity Mision and producer of the movies said that the GHMC readily agreed when they were approached by for the initiative. “Themes revolving around afforestation, water conservation, minimising plastic use, public toilet facility, property tax and unauthorised constructions have been tackled. The song will raise awareness on ‘save fuel, save electricity”, he said. The team took close to two weeks to develop the movies, and Pratap said that they were looking forward to bringing out more of such initiatives.
“Maybe we could do one on smoking or other ill habits of people in public, sometime in the near future. This is just the beginning”, he added.
The movies, which were launched at Prasads Preview theatre by GHMC Commissioner, MT Krishna Babu here, will soon be shown as a preview clip during movie screenings in all city multiplexes and theatres, as part of a public awareness initiative. The producers of the film have already received the clearance letter from the state government for the same.
