The film stars the award winning Sally Hawkins as Rita O’Grady who is the catalyst for the 1968 Ford Dagenham strike by 187 sewing machinists which led to the advent of the Equal Pay Act. Working in extremely impoverished conditions for long arduous hours which they must balance with their domestic lives, the women at the Ford Dagenham plant finally lose their patience when they are reclassified as unskilled . With humour, common sense and courage they take on their corporate paymasters, an increasingly belligerent local community, and finally the government itself. The leader of the women’s struggle is fast-talking, no nonsense Rita whose fiery temper and occasionally hilarious unpredictability proves to be a match for any of her male opponents, and is echoed by Barbara Castle's struggle in the male-dominated House of Commons.
Incredible expression of religious emotions is the art of ‘Jal Sanjhi or painting on water. In the Krishna temples of north, originated this art of Jal Sanjhi. The priests of the temples used to create the life forms of Lord Krishna, his childhood, his youth and his aura in form of a painting on water. The colors used were derived from dry fruits, stones, vegetables, flowers, fruits and other natural substances. It takes six to seven hours of hard dedicated work of an artisan to create this beautiful magical scene on the surface of water. The finished work remains intact for 3 to 4 hours and then gradually dissipates in water. It was under royal patronage of kings.With the advent of modern era, kingship and royal patronage became on a simple, poor and god fearing priest of the temple, yet they have dedicated their lives to this non profitable art. But in 21st century, the art form has become almost extinct.

With the advent of the modern corporate workplace in the twenty-first century, more and more people are toiling away behind desks, wearily clocking the standard forty-hour week. By 1910, writer Arnold Bennett had observed a worrying trend of exhausted wage-earners whose waking hours revolved around their jobs and who had little time to spend on the business of actually living. Self-improvement was Bennett’s prescription for a speedy escape from the woes of the rat race. In his popular work How to Live on 24 Hours a Day, he advised those starved for time to set manageable goals for themselves and to pursue fulfilling activities - in much the same way that modern self-help experts urge today’s busy people to seek enlightenment, relaxation, and satisfaction in a chaotic world. Take a break from your busy day and let Arnold Bennett’s still-fresh advice help you find the contentment and calm you seek. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Arnold Bennett.
