My Short Journey

Finally spent some time playing with Windows movie maker on my laptop. Always wanted to try out putting together some pictures and music and see how it goes. The images are from my trip to South Orissa early this year. Frankly I couldn't find any other appropriate music. Everyone I showed the file, hated the music. "Too depressing" was the general comment.
So? It is depressing and what is the occasion to celebrate here? The landscape is stark ,beautiful and tough; the houses are small, unpretentious and exquisite; the people are simple, kind and hardworking; the children are achingly sweet, innocent and lovely; but there is nothing romantic or thrilling about their life. These are people of the forests and they may be happy- I dont know. Happiness is relative. But life is hard, survival is a struggle and hope is almost non-existent. There is no bubble protecting them from evil and ugliness either. I think depressing music serves well as background score.
Anyways, ignore my "speech" and let me know what you think...if you have an opinion i.e. This was only meant to be a play time project.

The Serengeti of India- Kaziranga

Join Sandesh Kadur (one of my favorite wildlife photographer/documentary film maker) as he travels across the North-east Himalayan landscape and documents the wildlife of the Eastern Himalaya. This is the first in a series of video chapters produced whilst still in the field photographing.

It has recently been nominated for a Green Oscar at the Wildscreen Wildlife Festival 2010, @ Bristol, UK. Congratulations!!!

And, someday....

Feeling really tired and really hopeless.
Wish to be utterly selfish and leave everything and everyone and escape.
What a struggle!

One of my favorite malayalam song exquisitely rendered by Job Kurian. Ashamed to admit that I don't understand the whole song. The complexity of the lyrics makes it really tough. It is by Sri Kaithapram afterall!

The song is OST of Kireedam, a fantastic movie of Mohanlal. Be warned-you will cry buckets and buckets and if you have super active tear buds like me get flood insurance :P (PJ!)

PS: Happy Birthday John Lenon
