India Movie Creating Schizophrenia Awareness

Pune Movie (TV Show) Creates Schizophrenia Awareness

In Pune (a city in the state of Maharashtra located in India) a telefilm or "made-for-TV movie" is being made to raise schizophrenia awareness. Though the movie will be shot in Maharati (one of the languages spoken in Pune) it will be dubbed in both English and Hindi (the Indian national language). "The film being shot in and around Pune, is produced by the Schizophrenia Awareness Association (SAA) in association with the Satish Wagle Production." Further, the movie will be "the first of its kind covering all aspects and stages of the disorder, taking guidance from renowned psychiatrists in India and abroad." The release of this movie will hopefuly bring about an increase in the awareness of schizophrenia both internationally and within India where "around ten million people (...) are affected by the disease. (ANI)"

The subject movie is good for artistic handling of the subject. It has all emotional melodrama of the people surrounding demandinmg expected responses. But for education on schizophrenia I would say 10 in 100.
Do you know that the movie got a prize for environment protection awareness in India as it has lots of pictures of Jungles.

My father recently committed suicide by jumping from the 7 th floor terrace of our residential building. He was suffering from schizophrenia for more that 30 years. I would like to contribute my experience to increase awareness about it within our society.

it's heart-breaking to see parents suffering in the throes of the debilitating disease of schizophrenia... i hope genetic science reaches its 'critical mass' soon; wherein intervention procedures could be common-place to help / stabilise afflicted people. Till then, please remember to protect any children from coming into contact with the patients, especially when they are at their recalcitrant worst ...
