Director Goutam Ghosh has said that creative people like filmmakers and photographers are helpless as their voices are never heard by the political powers. But the filmmakers and photographers will keep chronicling events and speak against atrocities against humanity, said Ghosh inaugurating an exhibition on Rohingya refugees by Bangladesh photographers Moinul Alam and Asma Beethe.

"Somewhere, somehow the plight of Rohingyas refugees are in no way different from the plight of the 1947 Parition victims. The tale of refugees has remained the same for ages," the ace cine director said on Monday. Ghosh, the director of Bengali film 'Sankhachil' themed on Partition and the inner connection between people across borders, said big political powers have always been busy in creating borders and displacing people in different corners of the world.

"The political powers are always practising their own game of divide and rule." He said as a thinking person he is deeply disturbed by the Rohingya issue and the Syria situation. "These issues will be certainly referred in a future work of mine. In what way, I can only specify later," he said.

Asma Beethe said, Bangladesh is presently sheltering over 19 lakh Rohingyas refugees who fled Myanmar. The 28 photographs of the refugee families were taken at the relief camps at Teknaf is Cox's Bazar district of Bangladesh, in settlemets there and the Naf river bank.

"The displacement of the Rohingyas is a tale of human resilience which moved us to tears," she recalled. The exhibition 'The Influx Passage' will continue till June 30 at a memorial gallery in College Street in the city.
