Two-in-one : Speed water & pollination agent, on duty


Thursday, December 07, 2017

Woke up this morning to see this article in Bombay Times announcing ‘3 Storeys’ a feature film produced by @priyasreedharan and directed by Arjun Mukerjee - that releases on 16th Feb! This is big for me as I’ve known both of these people from over twenty years now and seen them and worked with them as bright youngsters at Whitelight, then turn producer and director doing awesome ad films that I’ve been associated with and now this maiden directorial of Arjun’s, produced by Priya who has produced multiple features before. Having seen it at the trials I can tell you it’s a film you must watch - I’m going to be there to watch it on the big screen on the first day!

Unfamiliar flower on a very familiar plant. One that’s an integral part of Indian cuisine- we probably consume it in some form almost everyday! Can you guess which plant I’m referring to? Take a guess! #growyourownfood #wintergreens #organicfarming #Karjat

And he heads off to yet another evening. Of creating awe and wonderment for his audience. Working out newer material to try out each time. Time after time. And once the performance is done, it’s then time to understand the audiences reactions, feedback...what part they liked, what didn’t work and get working on it once again! Thanks to him I’ve been fortunate to see the brave new ecosystem of young performers, storytellers, poets, stand up comics, writers, magicians, illusionists and several more performing artistes breaking new ground and formats who are all practising the same drill with amazing passion. I love the times they’re in and the opportunities they have, that they’re making the most of ! Hats off to all of them! I’m reminded of the words of Kahlil Gibran, ‘You may give them your love but not your thoughts, For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.’ #storytellers #poets #illusionists #greattimetobealive #indianartists #makeinindia #skillindia #spoken #spokenfest #paperweight #beatmap #performersofinstagram #instagram #india

Hi people! How many of you know or remember this ‘Velvet Bean’ that causes intense itchiness on contact. And how many of you have played a prank by getting some unsuspecting person in contact with this? Unpopular kids and even teachers in school some time or the other had an experience with this one! I saw fresh flowers of the plant and the dreaded bean this morning & stopped to only carefully take a picture to share it with you folks. Brought back memories of childhood! #pranks #schoolmemories #naturestheatre #iphone7plus #nofilter #TheHappyBanyan #Karjat
