Original Blog:

Society from time to time obligates people not just to
reproduce in thought previous events of their lives, but
also to touch them up, to shorten them or to compete
them. so that, however connivance we are that our
memories are exact, we give them a prestige that the
reality did not possess. – MAURICE HALBWACHS
Many people were wondering about my recent work, as there hasn’t been any update on my blog in past 6 months. During this period I was working on my diploma project, which has resulted into a film. The project started with various photographs of an old pune city and as I started interviewing various people and collecting stories, the project started taking shape.
Here is the diploma blog of my project which has all the details related to the film and the project:

Last year in kashmir, at night we decided to shoot, but there was so electricity as we were staying with ‘Bakkarwals’ (shepherd/ nomads in kashmir) at the river bank, finally we decided to shoot in the car headlight.
