Granted, there is a bit of dust in the air. But between those cough-inducing particles is a vibrancy you are also breathing in.
Something extraordinary is happening here. This ancient civilization is transforming herself into a leading modern nation.
Amidst the social and economic explosion, what still grabs me is the image of the vegetable seller with his worn wooden cart leisurely selling his produce along the busy streets with the sparkling 5-star hotel looming in his background.
In this picture he hints of something very very old, a way of life, a way of thinking and being that centuries of life have produced. The picture also hints of the new, of the creative enterprise and of the transformation happening.
This film is my creative response to the Idea Of India. It is the juxtaposition of the old and the new poetically coexisting and continually creating herself anew.
A billion people are breathing in this possibility everyday.
