Dear All,
Thanks a lot for your wishes.

This was the first attempt. Mrudul has helped a lot in terms of assisting me as well as handling the production planning, logistics etc. I am sure later more members can be a part of our productions.

I am happy the film has been appreciated. Maharashtra environment department and Maharashtra pollution control board will now screen the film in various places and it will help in raising awareness.

The prize distribution will happen on 5th June forenoon. In the afternoon session the film will be screened along with other films. If any one in Mumbai can come then I can meet there in the mantralaya venue.

Shaktipada ji,
Thanks for your kind words. In the storm, I saw a rare beauty of Sundarbans. It didn't induce fear in me. Rather it was a sense of awe and joy being a part of it. There will be many more trips to Sundarbans to document it properly.


Congratulations.Really happy to get the good news.The way you were documenting Nature's beauty and fury in the Sundarbans with spirit and dedication, many more ackowledgements and rewards will flow.SaktiWild

The Maharashtra Chief Minister was very eloquent and spoke on all the environmental issues including western ghats report by Madhav Gadgil, use of solar power, sustainable development etc. The entire program was telecasted in DD.

Thanks Keerthy. This was the first effort. There are many in the pipeline.

The plan is to involve people who are members of IndiaWilds. The reason is once an understanding is established, it becomes easier. At present I am unable to carry all the equipment. And there is more stuff that I am procuring whenever I find someone coming from US. I have lot of plans and dreams.
