Few discoveries and inventions changed the world and affected man's life greatly. Discovery of iron, oil, electricity, and steam engine, and the like; inventions and innovations like invention of the wheel, light bulb, automobile, airplane, etc. have had similar impacts on our lives. Yet, probably, the single most important invention and innovation in human historyin the realm of culture and art that has evolved our lives greatly has been cinema industry.
Cinema is not a mere industry, it is not a mere art; but, it is a collection of arts: story, music, playing, cinematography, screening, …have created an amazing composition in cinema. No wonder why most artists in various fields of art wind up in cinema. Cinema is The Crown Jewel of arts; exactly like the football that is The Crown Jewel of Sports.
It is such a pleasure to wish all the children and young people who are The Crown Jewel of creation much happiness and peace on this special day: Happy World Audiovisual Heritage Day!
