IOTY10: OTFS Documentary of the Year

The nominees are:
  • The Making of a Monument: The New Technical Block at IIT Roorkee, Saharanpur Campus. An attempt at stringing together a documentary through a series of collages. Although short-lived, the experience was wonderful.
  • Chernobyl: Nuclear Death. At a time when India is getting set to purchase several nuclear reactors, a look back in time at the world's worst nuclear disaster.
  • Don't Tell Anybody: A Study into the Social Evil of Ragging. In the year when the Aman Kachroo case saw the seniors being sentenced to imprisonment, and two years since the historic Raghavan Committee, we looked into the entire stratum of ragging.
  • Now Boarding: IC-814: The Story of the Kandahar Hijack. A look back into India's worst security situation and how we have adapted to ensure that something like that never happens again.
  • The Euro Trap. In a year when Ireland, Spain and Portugal faced imminent crisis, we looked into how their allegiance to the Euro is costing them dearly.
