International Film Festival of Kerala

The International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK) is a film festival held annually in Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum), the capital city of Kerala, India. This film festival was started in 1996 and is hosted by the Kerala State Chalachitra Academy on behalf of Department of Cultural Affairs, Government of Kerala. The festival is held in November/December every year and is acknowledged as one of the leading such events in India. Several national and international films have their premiers at the IFFK each year. In 2005, 14 films including the Oscar-nominated Water, directed by Deepa Mehta were screened for the first time in India at the IFFK and this is attributed to the well-informed, serious-minded audience that the festival boasts of. Competition section is limited to 14 selected films produced in Asia, Africa or Latin America. The festival also has a section devoted to Malayalam cinema. In lines of IFFK, the Chalachitra Academy also organises the International Documentary and Short Film Festival of Kerala.

Mother Teresa

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind,
people may accuse you of selfish ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful,
you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank,
people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building,
someone could destroy overnight.
Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness,
they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today,
people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have,
and it may never be enough;
Give the best you’ve got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis
it is between you and God;
it was never between you and them anyway.

A good woman

A good woman is proud.

She respects herself and others,
She is aware of who she is.

She neither seeks definition from
the person she is with, nor does
she expect them to read her mind.

She is quite capable of articulating
her needs.
A good woman is hopeful.

She is strong enough to make
all her dreams come true.

She knows love,
therefore she gives love.

She recognizes that her love
has great value and must
be reciprocated.
If her love is taken for granted,
it soon disappears.
A good woman has a dash of
inspiration and a dabble
of endurance.

She knows that she will at times
have to inspire others to reach the
potential God gave them.
A good woman knows her past,
understands her present and forces
toward the future.
A good woman knows God.

She knows that with God the world is
her playground, but without God
she will just be played with.
A good woman does not live
in fear of the future
because of her past.

Instead, she understands that
her life experiences are
merely lessons meant to bring her
closer to self-knowledge
and unconditional self-love.
