I am a content creator based in Mumbai for the past 17 years. With a strong focus for Asian cinema and documentaries, I write, direct and sometimes edit films/content. At the moment I am working on a Mixed Reality docu series on the rise and fall of Indus Valley Civilisation using the latest tools in technology to tell the story.

In 1979 a young boy saw dead animals and snakes around a barren river bank. He went out to investigate the reason behind those deaths, he found out it was due to dwindling forest resources. To help the animals, he started planting saplings in the middle of a barren wasteland in Assam. Every day, he planted one new sapling. We went in search of him and to see the world he created...40 years later...
