My Video scholarship 2010 entry: ECHOES OF THE VALLEY

INDIA | Friday, 28 May 2010 | Views [820] | Scholarship Entry

A board saying “24 HOURS HUNGER STRIKE, 43 DAYS GONE” I could never ignore at the market place of Leh, the capital of Ladakh on the first day when I landed there. “Echoes of the valley” would never have happened if we (accompanying friend Neil satyam and me) had chosen the site seeing of the beautiful landscapes only than running after this unexpected problem of the valley. We both went restless and the only time we could spend was to gather as many information as possible on the Tibet issue.

It was difficult to commute in a terrain like Ladakh, where public transport was a crisis, especially when you are interested in the non-tourist places for a fact finding. However, it added more charm to the travel and became the most stimulating journey in my life so far.

As a documentary maker I aspire to travel such places and bring home such stories those are thought provoking and must watch.
