              Ramayana is popularly known as 'Adi Kaavya' (the first literature). It consists of 24000 verses in 7 Chapters (called Kaandas). It is extremely popular among Hindus, Buddhists and Jains in India and other countries such as Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, Burma and Malaysia. The scripture begins as a dialogue between Sage Valmiki and the celestial saint Narada. Sage Valmiki asks Narada about the ideal being -- Perfection Incarnate -- the person with the noblest qualities ever seen. Narada proceeds to answer Valmiki with the divine story of Lord Rama -- The Ramayana.Shata-Shloki Ramayana (Ramayana in 100 verses) is the first canto of this monumental epic written in the 32-syllable meter called the 'Anushtup'. The Shata-Shloki is an abridged version of the whole tale describing the major events in the following sequence: 1. Baala Kaanda : The birth of Rama, his childhood and his marriage to Seeta. 2. Ayodhya Kaanda: Preparations for Rama's coronation and his exile to the forest. 3. Aranya Kaanda: Rama in forest and the abduction of Seeta by Ravana, the demon king of Lanka 4. Kishkindha Kaanda: Rama's meeting with Hanuman, the slaying of Vanara King Vaali and installation of Vaali's younger brother Sugreeva as the ruler of Kishkindha 5. Sundara Kaanda: Hanuman's heroics, his flight to Lanka and his discovery of Seeta 6. Yuddha Kaanda: The epic battle between Rama and Ravana. 7. Uttara Kaanda: Lord Rama's coronation, his reign and the Lord's return to Vaikuntha Shata shloki Ramayana ends with a Phala Shruti narrating the benefits of chanting and listening to this hymn.His Holiness Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji of Avadhoota Datta Peetham has sonorously chanted these 100 verses in the audio album "Shata Shloki Ramayana" in the Ragas Mohana, Charukeshi, Shuddha Dhanyasi, Hamsadhwani, Sriraga, Purvikalyani, Peelu, Sallapam and Madhyamavati. This slideshow video includes the audio of the album with appropriate visuals from Ramayana sketched by an artist per Sri Swamiji's direction. Also included in the video are the brief inner meanings of each verse in English and its English transliteration for easy learning.

                In 1980 Shanghai had no skyscrapers. It now has at least 4,000 — more than twice as many as New York. ‘This is Shanghai’ explores the diversities and eccentricities of the metropolis that is Shanghai going beyond the famous skyline. Photographer Rob Whitworth and urban identity expert JT Singh joined forces combining deep city exploration and pioneering filmmaking. ‘This is Shanghai’ is a roller coaster ride seamlessly weaving between the iconic, sparkling and mismatched buildings of the financial district travelling by boat and taxi touring Shanghai’s impressive infrastructure whilst glimpsing some of the lesser-known aspects of Shanghai life such as the lower stratum areas or the stunning graffiti of Moganshan road. And of course there is the opportunity to try some of the vast variety of street food and Shanghai’s most popular homegrown delicacy, the pan-fried pork dumplings, the shengjian bao. Wherever you travel in Shanghai the cities skyline is always present. The looming silhouette of the almost constructed Shanghai Tower now dominates and perfectly encapsulates the new heights this city is yet to reach. Once completed, in 2014, it will be the tallest building in China and the second tallest in the world after the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. To understand the city, the team carried out rigorous urban exploration. In the words of JT “we walked, walked and walked, the Jane Jacobs way”. Weibo, China’s main social media platform was used to ask local Shanghainese people to share ideas of different vantage points and what they thought were the over-riding characteristics of the city. Stealth and curiosity were required to find and gain access to rooftops and locations. It became addictive for the team discovering breath-taking vantage points of the city. There was always an adrenaline rush upon reaching the top of a different building to see the vast urban jungle of Shanghai. Rob Whitworth (www.robwhitworth.co.uk/) is a creative time lapse photographer from the UK based in Asia. His previous videos, ‘Traffic in Frenetic HCMC’ and ‘Kuala Lumpur DAY-NIGHT’ have received international attention including being short listed for 7 film festivals, and have had received well over 2 million online views. JT Singh (www.jtsingh.com/) has explored hundreds of emerging cities around the world and is a next generation thinker about the value and impact of 21st century cities. Having grown up in Toronto JT is now based in China. He explains: “The over-riding reason we made this video was to creatively show the world visually how China is rising, in particular Chinese cities. Just as New York City exemplified the strengths and ambitions of emerging America in the 20th century, Shanghai, perhaps more than any old or emerging rival, will personify the power and dreams of rising Asia in the 21st century.” JT Singh Website: www.jtsingh.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/jtssingh Twitter: https://twitter.com/jtssingh Rob Whitworth Website: http://www.robwhitworth.co.uk/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/RobWhitworthPhotography Copyright all images Rob Whitworth 2013 - www.robwhitworth.co.uk | Soundtrack used under license Artist ‘Subscape’ Track ‘Shanghai’ © submergedmusic

                  Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) is an amazing up and coming city. This time lapse is a culmination of 10,000 RAW images and multiple shoots capturing some of the cities relentless energy and pace of change. Everyone who has visited Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam knows part of the magic (love it or hate it) is in the traffic. Ever since I first set foot in HCMC I have been captivated by the cities energy. Saigon is a city on the move unlike anything I have experienced before which I wanted to capture and share. Thanks to everyone who helped with the film and thanks also to the numerous kind people who allowed me access to some amazing locations.

                    Kuala Lumpur: super-modern buildings juxtaposed with various cultural enclaves and with a little of Asia’s chaos thrown in. My time lapse explores how the city changes from day to night highlighting how spaces dramatically alter during the course of a few hours. As summarised by Marc Lourdes on Yahoo! Malaysia: “5 months. 400 hours of solid work. 4 cameras. 40 shoots. 640 gigabytes of data. 19,997 photographs.” http://my.news.yahoo.com/time-lapse-photographer-releases-stunning-video-of-kl.html Cameras / lens used, Nikon D800 Nikon D7000 x2 Nikon D3200 (Backup body) Nikon 16-35 f/4G AF-S VR Zoom Nikkor NIkon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED AF-S DX Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G ED AF-S VR II Nikon 50mm f/1.4G AF-S Nikon 10.5mm f/2.8G ED AF DX Fisheye Special thanks to: Maybank for collaborating with Eco Knights to inspire sustainable living in Malaysia.

                      The Alphabet 2- a horn book video experiment - is a developmental spelling - video where each character visually represents the meaning of the word itself. Playing with different techniques and materials into little and big spaces, but always focusing on Helvetica font's proportions. A collection of words in a delightful spelling-video.
