Then in the year of 1995 a research work on tribal communities and indigenous technologies with Ministry of Social Welfare and Asiatic Society of India brought me closer to the nature and the aboriginal communities of rural Indis.
While documenting the intricate use of indigenous technique in the making of wooden bullock cart wheel, my passion to audio-visually document this about to extinct craft form has given birth to the first documentary film “Probing a circular motion”... Since then conventional practices and ways of living in communities has become my primary existential well-beingness. Indigenous practice of midwifery in Santhal communities living on the borderline of Jharkhand and West Bengal gave birth to a documentary film titled “ Fables of birth” after many years of research and living with the protagonists of Fables of Birth ...
A few years of living in France has gotten me back to Mumbai later... a film on junior artists of Bollywood titled “Extras, the identity of politics” had been made to showcase another facet of Bollywood away from glitz and glamour.
