Walking on a lonely road, or travelling in a bus especially in a city like Delhi is unnerving for a lot of people, especially women. How does one find their voice when surrounded by violence, injustice and abuse? In this talk, Atika Chohan speaks of all this and more. She speaks of turning to feminism to make sense of the world around her and, in the process, learning that feminism is all about balancing power, while at the same time learning to raise a voice against patriarchy. Widely known for penning Bollywood’s most progressive, inclusive and unflinching stories, screenwriter Atika Chohan won immense critical acclaim for co-writing Chapaak, a film based on the life of acid attack survivor, Laxmi. Her stellar work also includes “Margarita with a straw”, “Waiting” and the recently released Netflix original "Guilty", with the former bagging a National Award among many other laurels. Starting her journey as a Print and TV Journalist, Atika wrote for The Hindu and CNN-IBN before she found her true calling in fiction writing and graduated as a screenwriter from Pune’s Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) in 2008. Her trademark filmography makes use of powerful plots and exceptional characters to give life to unique stories. Watch this talk to find out how cinema has given her a chance to express herself!
