The Viral Fever and #BreakTheBeard are Presenting Padh Le Basanti
News Desk, News Nation 360 : Cheating is a disease. Cheating is cool. Cheating is a tradition followed in every school. But little does one know, that cheating is the very consequence of the pressure to perform better in future and the backlash of failing, faced in the past. The new sketch by The Viral Fever Padh le Basanti throws light on how the current practices of educating children are actually failing to fulfil the very goal, of educating. Commenting on the video, Gagan Arora who starred in Ujda Chaman and various web series said that studying should be a process of learning and learning should be voluntary and not forced. When one is forced to learn they feel pressurized. Cheating is a consequence of fear and pressure. Education happens when one is learning what interests one, something that
one is curious about. Darr aur education agar coexist kartey hai
to usse training kehtey hai, education nahi. This is what they have tried to portray in the video. In association with Gillette for #BreakTheBeard, this sketch written by Prashant Kumar, and directed by Sangram Naiksatam shows the need to break the wheel of turning education to business and the futility of cheating through, rib ticking jokes, great performances and popular references making it worth a watch. Basing it on the plot and characters of the iconic movie Rang De Basanti, this sketch has a power-packed star cast in the form of Gagan Arora, Ranjan Raj, Mayur More, Shreya Chakraborty, Priya Yadav, Harsh Mayar, Anant Singh, this sketch shows how four students of Basanti Christ Convent International School risk it all to make things better for the masses studying in their school. This satirical commentary on turning education into business with loads of references from Rang De Basanti aims to motivate school-goers to learn in the right way by making notes, self-study and group studies, instead of resorting to shady ways of passing the exams.
