In india religion in its all dimension and diversities is the very base of the life line. Recently when out of nowhere corona pandemic came and spreads all over the world, death came crawling everywhere . No country , no town and no neighbournood escaped its deathly impact. Since Indian psyche is deeply rooted in religious belief, it is natural that most of the Indian seeks refuge in various religious practices along with whatever medical help came their way.
When in times pandemic effects got milder, age old traditional 'Kumbh Mela' was anounced- it is a centuries old traditional gathering of various Hindu sect on the bank of river ganga at holy city of Haridwar. Rakesh with no experience of film making on his own whim decided to make a film on the theme of river Ganga and Kumbh Religious fair. So he got hold of a amateur camera person 'Siddharth' and started to shoot the documentary film, with no story line and no prior written script and any plot.
And this is the very theme of this musical film 'KALRAV -The sound of running water'. How frame by frame a story is born and characters came into being and how the making of the documentary spiritually transformed the makers and also the various characters in their own ways..

Island is a silent piece that depicts the life in an Island. Using island as a place and a metaphor for life, I interpret my own life in a dance piece. Inspired by all the islands I have lived in my life- London, Manhattan, and Jeju Island, I use dance as means of communication and hope. Under the pandemic I felt the urge to create a piece that relates to the repeated daily life cycle but at the same time, Island as a cross concept of reality and fantasy/paradise.
Set between the islands in three different countries, I compose the story of my journey to rediscover who I really am. In this deep and affecting journey of self-discovery, touching on issues of loneliness, isolation, and the perseverance of the human spirit.

Samsara’ (the mind turned outwardly, lost in its projections) is a charcoal drawn, stop-motion animation, discussing the cyclical nature of life, death and rebirth. The story is played out in a dream-like world, full of symbolism and surreal imagery, laced with metaphor and mythology. Life is discussed as a series of actions and consequences in a never-ending loop. Images of things appear then disappear, grow then die, questioning the ideas of predestination and the illusion of free will. Each person is the centre of their own story, each creating their own reality by way of their choices in any given situation. You have the freedom of choice, but the inevitable outcome is the same, just each journey is different. The protagonist is both the beginning and the end, changing form before giving birth to themselves over and over again, inevitably being a part of both their own creation and destruction.
