A positive and civilised outlook towards womanhood would help to prevent atrocities against women, said noted film director Shekar Kammula. Everyone in the society has to do their part to fight against the atrocities on women so as to curb the growing incidents of violence on women, he told a large gathering of students in Warangal on Thursday. He interacted with the students of Kakatiya University Engineering College as a part of a gender sensitisation programme organised by 'India React' established by the director himself and the KU Engineering College. Shekar explained to the students that he has established the organisation with an intention to do his part to prevent the acts of violence against women and to create awareness among the members of the society the need to treat the women in honourable manner. The women like men have equal rights to live freely in the society and everyone has to understand that fact and act accordingly. It becomes the duty every person to ensure the secure existence of women. The film director while expressing serious concern over the sexual abuse of girl children has appealed the students to react and try to raise their voice against such incidents. KU vice chancellor Prof. B Venkat Ratham felicitated the director at his chambers. The Engineering College principal LP Rajkumar and others were present.
