A short film capturing a small glimpse of the beauty Sharjah has to offer. Traveling all over the Emirate we experienced ancient tradition, epic landscapes, vibrant communities, mouth-watering cuisine, holy sites, stunning nature, flourishing wildlife and gentle souls.

Daily life in the Indian holy cities of Rishikesh, Haridwar, and Devprayag. This region lies in the foothills of the Himalayas where the Ganges River descends from the mountains. I visited not knowing what to expect, and I was both awed and saddened by the experience. The beauty of nature and the Hindu ceremonies contrasted with the poverty and suffering on the streets. The people I met had a high-spirited resilience that seemed to stem from surviving and maintaining their devotion through a challenging life.
