    Description

    From a cosmic idealistic country, I am an ad Film maker/Creative writer.

    By seating in the Nature you cannot connect with it, if Nature does not want to connect with you. Real feeling is not being there, but being yourself, without being anywhere. :)

    What we have learnt in life just increases our judgemental values, far from reality. What we seek is deeper then what we see, or we want. If you can avoid counting the number of dishes you washed, surely, you can gain the cleanliness pf soul. :)

    I grew up in rural and urban natural lives. Making me experience and learn some things on different levels of cultures, society differences, Indian deeper roots, religious, spiritual and positivity through life. So looking at life in its best or worst way, with in its various colorful shades.

    We love the theatre of our lives. But, sometimes, we like the role of the other character more then ours, that we want to live through their eyes, whereas it was your eyes which spotted that character. :)

    Why you expect anything from anyone else, its you, who is incomplete. We can make things better by just thinking good for others.

    Spiritual Understanding. :

    Forgetting is a new step towards understanding and connecting to a new being. You cannot have the same mind as the other; so, you should choose whats better for you, not only by surrender but by rising yourself, too....

    Rural or Urban, the road of life has to pass through both. You can connect with one, but, cannot neglect the other. Both are dependent on eachother, and both are essential for eachothers identity. Both have their own form of energies. A less crowded or natural place, tranquil your soul or crowded streets rich in energy of people and rush, energies your Universe to rise above the ordinary. You can extract the equal amount of energy from both. Only if you are able to connect with them.

    Let us choose things that can make us grow.
    Why do we take life so seriously, When life itself is not so serious for you.
    As the most right people around us, are actually the most wrong.

    Let us share a soul shining its social, non - materialistic and non - judgmental attitude, in love with life, even if shattered by the surroundings or struggle in thoughts, exploring natural minds, want to change things for better. Yoga, and deep spirituality comes in handy or wants to explore the both more,, could be something we can grow with. - As sometimes more is less... as we grow together in search of various meanings.

    After understanding our own Universe, we can share Universes and its energies, Which makes us grow. Our Universes are connected, and once we find out, its just clearing the strata of life after that.

    Some of my walks have been through spiritual track. During some of my travels, with some hidden meanings, they unfolding in an unexpected way, and made me walk on spiritual and self discovering path, with some naturally rich saints. Enlightening many pores closed due to the hectic mind, but thinking the same thing. :) The experience enriched life with new meanings.

    If you talk from your soul, you can feel trees communicating with you, a connection with earth and nature. Same way, giving up fear clear the doubts from life. :)

    Alter/change western point of view on India.

    Creative Understanding. :

    We can enhance our knowledge on various things by exchange of our live's experiences, culture, creative, music, photography, writing skills, theater, spiritual love, yoga life, religious outlooks or just various other subjects.

    As a film maker I Worked on many successful advertisement, and small time documentaries, music videos,, and on various small films, (which most of them did not see the light of the day) :)

    I try to make some interesting videos or films on different subjects, or themes from the real world. Would love to show case things in a different light, which can be quirky, funny and informational in same time. Idea is to capture real life, possibly in interesting way. Which made me start writing new subjects for my movie idea. :)

    Besides other creative work, I like writing on film subjects (film scripts, which I will love to make :) ) and sometimes creative writing for advertisements.. :)

    I have also worked with some interesting volunteers, on documentaries or videos or information collection. Like ecological balance, and cultural differences. Also, freelance produced for many production houses, National and International, for shooting in India.

    Right now I am working towards making of my 1st feature film. Sametime, writing another feature film. Mostly, I am inclined towards action genre, dark truth, with satirical flavor. Being emotional and romantic comes naturally, and unlike Indian Films, (Bollywood Films) lead actress play a pivotal role in my stories. not just singing songs. :)
    I have recently finished writing a new film script. Now, will get bus raising its money for producing, or get a producer. I will be opening this project for multiple financing as well. So, if you have anyone in mind to become the part of the project, let me know. It will shot in India, but will have true international approach. For that you need to know the story. :)
    After I get a go (enough money funded) will start looking for similar passionate people to get involved in the project. :)

    India has a rich heritage in Religious, Cultural, Yogic, Ayurveda, Spirituality and Food flavors. Through which life shapes up...

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I try to grasp as much from the people i meet, and their lives. So, i have a fair good idea of Mumbai and India. I think everyone will benefit from knowledge and it will be worth their experience in India.
    We can talk on cultural, spiritual, religious, caste divide, political nature, cooking, diversity of India, Ayurveda, and can give you deep insight on such various subjects and gain the same from you :)
    I can share my know how on Indian culture, religion, diversity, caste system, political outlook and various other things which might amaze you :)
    Leaving a Green Foot Print :
    India is a vast country. So, many prefer flights to travel in the country. It will be better if you travel by Trains. As you are on vacation and trains will help you to discover the country side. 2nd Ac and 3rd Ac (Ac is air condition) are safe and comfortable way of travel in Indian trains.

    Looking for exchange in life styles and sharing moments as a valuable addition in life.
    Being in creative field, there is always a quest to know more. So, we can share our knowledge on various subjects, and can be part of any of the daily chores (things). Sametime, we enjoy, enhancing ourselves, and our growth, by learning, sharing, creating new moments. :)

    Cultural, Religious, Spiritual, Life and Dreams EXCHANGE :

    Getting accustom to real India, and not western point of view. I grew among and surrounded by religious, spiritual and peace entities, can exchange on quest of spiritual path. That can make you understand India through its soul and feel the required connection
    Over here most of us are Seekers, who want to turn into Believers.
    Believing in new one self, and new World of Universal Energy, positive Aura, Soul full of new enriched Vibes.
    Once we shun our ego and fears, we get to gain from each moment. What thoughts we choose, makath us, rising our soul. :)

    This helps in understanding problems in life and search the path for loosing depression and problems through spiritual thoughts, meditation, and sharing the fear. Discovering the brighter side of life, and understanding own self leaving behind the bubble that traps us. Looking at the life with new view points, and gaining the all required steps towards internal peace.
    Spiritual connection with desired energies just catapults a soul into a universal beauty, experiencing cosmic energies.

    Time and energy are two related sources. Both compliment eachother when we compliment them. Only after we start understanding our universe, we connect time and energy, for better definition to life.
    And we have part of our universes, connected. Which part we belong to, is what we long for to discover, as we spend time together, and share energies.

    Why to take life so seriously, when life itself is not so serious about you.
    As the most right people around us, are actually the most wrong.

    Take time to breathe and share the moments, to end the struggle in thoughts, in mind, to enrich the soul. :)
    If anything is achieved within soul, and connection with your own Universe. Then the achievement is above and beyond your own beliefs, an uplifting and rising cosmic us. :)

    Everything is good, very good or excellent. The bad are only our thoughts of looking at things.

    So, we will be working on enriching us by sharing ourselves. As not only physical work is counted as life's achievement. Lets relax, make the body tention free, shedding its rust, and share eachothers life styles, to enhance our life. Exploring mutual personalities, and a chance to share, learn, exchange, with non- materialistic attitude, love with life and exploring new things, exchange of energies, and creating new ones...with different souls, and minds... Everyone is rich in something and we can help, mutually in various subjects...

    Around the window you get to see the old and new of Mumbai.
    A walk around, and you will notice old western european styled houses, graffiti filled lanes. Giving an impression, for a while, that you are not in a big city But you are in the best part of Mumbai :) The street lanes have a impressions of old architecture, and stillness of time. Also, various books with me, to share interests, and learn more from yours.

    Mumbai Rains are equally gorgeous. You get to enjoy the smell of the earth mixed in air, as well, eat Indian rain weather fried food with delicious masala chai (tea). In heavy rains you might have to adjust a bit, as dampness might take time to dry in clothes or in beddings or in mattresses, or leading to lack of certain things.

    Anyone can use the kitchen, and as I am a foodie, so we can try some dishes together. Will love it if someone can teach me their dishes as well. I can be Vegan, Vegetarian, anything you will like me to be. As I am good with all kinds of food. Moreover, you can try Indian food being cooked at home. I stay in a nice surroundings so you will get to experience different levels of living of India. and night life is quite active around here. So whenever we wish we can go for partying around the places. There is no issue with any kind of travel transport. And airport is 20-30 minutes away depending upon the traffic and arrival time. Seaside is ten minutes walk. If you wish to have an early morning jog or a late evening walk. :)
    Its a break from hectic mind, travel, and thoughts. :)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Experiences of life are invaluable. For my dreams or passion, to make films, every experience counts. :).
    It will be nice to see how the souls rich in their various outlooks, will like Mumbai or India. Places all around Mumbai are easily approachable. by taxi, auto, local train or Buses. Mumbai in India is known as 'city of dreams'' and 'city that never sleeps'. So, you can enjoy all kinds of things you expect to do in a big city. And i will be there to help you have the best time. :) This city will give experiences unlike other cities, as Rich and poor all live together... The flavours of divide. compromise, adjustment, working high, living big dreams, not to give up, relations, love, romance, movies, arts. theater, politics, mafia, development, modernization, .... more more more ... all you can feel just around you :) And no other city in the world can provide you same :) That's why its India... which is spiritual capital of the world. :)
    We can enjoy Mumbai's party circuit and sametime explore its entertainment through music/movies/theatre.

    Leaving a Green Foot Print :
    India is a vast country. So, many prefer flights to travel in the country. It will be better if you travel by Trains. As you are on vacation and trains will help you to discover the country side. 2nd Ac and 3rd Ac (Ac is air condition) are safe and comfortable way of travel in Indian trains.
    If you happen to stay with a local family or teach children. Try to give them lessons on cleanliness, less use of plastic etc. . And no garbage surroundings. Indians love to hear foreigners more. :) And with children getting it as a part of their study will help them understand it better. Try to give the children assignments on it. (Note : Do not teach out of turn i.e buses or trains or road, or hostel as they will not like it. )
    Instead of giving money to fake NGO's or emotionally blackmailing Guru's or Ashram's in India, plant trees where ever you happen to spend more then a week or two. Even at the places you plan to learn yoga, you have enough time to do that.
    If you have knowledge of water harvesting. Especially rain water, share it with people, wherever you stay. Hostels, Ashrams. Home etc.
    It might be difficult in the beginning. But still try not to use toilet papers in India. We have an ancient way of using water for toilets. A new experience for you and an environmental friendly. Copy this for rest of your life, this will save lot of trees. :)
