There is something to be said about how film and the media can be used as an effective tool to touch on broad cultural ideals. On a related note, I will be attending a conference soon in Boston on social studies education and one of the seminars I will be going to is how to use SciFi movies in the classroom. Ideals like equality, fighting oppression and free speech are timeless and span many cultures, in Pakistan, the Burka Avenger is that area's media outlet to discuss key social topics to young people.

A modern day Batman/Superman, Burka Avenger, with great graphics and an in-depth plot. The television shows the Pakistanis children watch are the same type of shows that I watched growing up, and the shows that the modern day children of today’s youth are watching. The cross-cultural relationship seems so different, but at the roots it is the same. The kids in this show have friends, pets, enemies, a hero, a conflict; everything that an American television show would feature.  Whether the kids are facing a bully, a school closure from a villain, or a life peril from another villain, there undercover school teacher is there ready and willing to save the day. Everybody needs a hero to look up to, so this show is great for the Pakistani youth.

I think this is wonderful.  It also reemphasizes the reality that all children are born without preconceived notions of what is right, what is wrong, what is good, or what is evil.  An American child might look at this and automatically think that the lady in the Burka is a "villain", due to American media and propaganda.  I can't help but think of the backlash that would surround this cartoon if they ever tried to put it on American airwaves.

Shizah Amin's insight:

This article is very impressive and informative. We are living in a busy society, everyone love to eat take away food, feeding babies canned food and ready to eat shelves products without noticing the harm of the chemical substance and side effects for the bodies. Media has to play an independent role to control these toxic items from our lives. We should buy the organic and hormone free products for our daily life style, eat fresh food and use green products for cleaning. Although we should follow the Government websides and the guide lines to buy and use green environmental friendly products.

Shizah Amin's insight:

The Indian Governament took a great step for mining closuer, Goven people will get the benefit for that action with a clean and healthy environment, if the government focuses on cleaning the public places that would be the greater impact on people health and hygien.
