My latest short film on Go Green this Diwali :)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-gQ1l5nuLU&feature=share

This film highlights the preparations done for Diwali by special children in Pune city. The aim of the film is not stoping people from bursting crackers but to invite them to discover the real meaning of this festival which is much more than just smoke and noise. Happy Green Diwali :)

Directed and filmed by Gaurav Ogale
An initiative by Youth to Yoth Organisation, Pune

Q&A with Dr. Kiran Seth


Recently I met Dr. Seth when he was in Pune for the NSI (National School Intensive) Programme meetings. It was absolute pleasure to interview him for the DNA. One feels absolutely enlightened by hearing him talk or even watch him play with his granddaughter.
Since we have space constraints in the newspaper here is an edited version of the interview. :)

Wherever the wind takes the loose earth :)


Wherever the wind takes the loose earth,

I wish to go that way,

For now I have let myself loose to change my way.

For once lead my way and let me follow,

I promise I will lead your way tomorrow.

It was not too late when you made me realize where I was going,

For I was blind when I could see more than I wanted to.

The wind might mislead me,

But I am positive you won’t.

I wish to see the white,

For I am done with gray,

And black seems to be history,

For once lead my way and let me follow,

Because now I have let myself loose to change my way.

I am not afraid of getting lost,

Getting lost would be just an excuse,

To run away from the circumstances.

If things were a little less complicated,

I wouldn’t know what it is to get entangled.

For once I am letting myself loose,

Lead my way and let me follow,

I promise I will lead your way tomorrow.

The bad is yet to come,

But the worse has swallowed me.

To explore a new path,

Unheard and undiscovered.

For the wind is misleading,

I am sure you won’t­.

Let’s go ahead and look back to what is gone,

For once I am letting myself loose,

Lead my way and let me follow.
