Diploma Project Scarred – Ill Effects of Child Abuse
Sekhar Mukherjee

Ford Foundation

The project works around a story that lays emphasis on the long lasting emotional effects on children due to child abuse and a negative family environment. The idea was to make people aware of the “dark side of the moon” that exists even in a seemingly normal, happy, educated family and the fact that the one thing that all hate – bullying – actually begins at home. The 2-minute animated short episode aims to dispel taboos related to the subject of domestic violence, physical and mental abuse towards children. It can be used as an aid in conducting workshops as well as spreading awareness on social media about the same, in a simple and sensitive manner.
