From a cosmic idealistic country, I am an ad Film maker/Creative writer.

What we have learnt in life just increases our judgemental values, far from reality. What we seek is deeper then what we see, or we want. Forgetting is a new step towards understanding and connecting to a new being. You cannot have the same mind as the other, if you have, you should know whats better for you. By just seating in nature you cannot connect with it, if Nature does not want to connect with you. Real feeling is not being there, but being yourself, without being anywhere. :)

I grew up in rural and urban natural lives. Making me experience and learn some things on different levels of cultures, society differences, Indian deeper roots, religious, spiritual and positivity through life. So looking at life in its best or worst way, with in its various colorful shades.
India has a rich heritage in Religious, Cultural, Yogic, Ayurveda, Spirituality and Food flavors. Through which life shapes up...

ON EXCHANGE - SHARING - LiIFE - CULTURE - CREATIVE MIND - STAY - FOOD -CITY :

1). CULTURAL, RELIGIOUS, SPIRITUAL EXCHANGE - Sharing. :

Being in creative field, there is always a quest to know more. So, we can share our knowledge on various subjects, and can be part of any of the daily chores (things). Sametime, we enjoy, enhancing ourselves, and our growth, by learning, sharing, creating new moments. :)

Getting accustom to real India, and not western point of view.

Over here most of us are Seekers, who want to turn into Believers.
Believing in new one self, and new World of Universal Energy, positive Aura, Soul full of new enriched Vibes.
Once we shun our ego and fears, we get to gain from each moment. What thoughts we choose, makath us, rising our soul. :)

Time and energy are two related sources. Both compliment eachother when we compliment them. Only after we start understanding our universe, we connect time and energy, for better definition to life.
And we have part of our universes, connected. Which part we belong to, is what we long for to discover, as we spend time together, and share energies.

Spiritual connection with desired energies just catapults a soul into a universal beauty, experiencing cosmic energies.

Why to take life so seriously, when life itself is not so serious about you.
As the most right people around us, are actually the most wrong.

Take time to breathe and share the moments, to end the struggle in thoughts, in mind, to enrich the soul. :)
If anything is achieved within soul, and connection with your own Universe. Then the achievement is above and beyond your own beliefs, an uplifting and rising cosmic us. :)

Everything is good, very good or excellent. The bad are only our thoughts of looking at things.

So, we will be working on enriching us by sharing ourselves. As not only physical work is counted as life`s achievement. Lets relax, make the body tention free, shedding its rust, and share eachothers life styles, to enhance our life. Exploring mutual personalities, and a chance to share, learn, exchange, with non- materialistic attitude, love with life and exploring new things, exchange of energies, and creating new ones...with different souls, and minds... Everyone is rich in something and we can help, mutually in various subjects...

We can enhance knowledge on various subjects by exchange of life experiences on culture, religious outlooks, meditation, Yoga, Ayurveda, Spirituality, creative, music, photography, writing skills, adventures, families, love, various emotions, relationships, theater, tantra massages or just any other subject making us explore new ways of experiencing the things around us.

PersonalThoughts :

!. Spiritual Understanding. :

Rural or Urban, the road of life has to pass through both. You can connect with one, but, cannot neglect the other. Both are dependent on eachother, and both are essential for eachothers identity. Both have their own form of energies. A less crowded or natural place, tranquil your soul or crowded streets rich in energy of people and rush, energies your Universe to rise above the ordinary. You can extract the equal amount of energy from both. Only if you are able to connect with them.

Let us choose things that can make us grow.
Why do we take life so seriously, When life itself is not so serious for you.
As the most right people around us, are actually the most wrong.

Let us share a soul shining its social, non - materialistic and non - judgmental attitude, in love with life, even if shattered by the surroundings or struggle in thoughts, exploring natural minds, want to change things for better. Yoga, and deep spirituality comes in handy or wants to explore the both more,, could be something we can grow with. - As sometimes more is less... as we grow together in search of various meanings.

After understanding our own Universe, we can share Universes and its energies, Which makes us grow. Our Universes are connected, and once we find out, its just clearing the strata of life after that.

Some of my walks have been through spiritual track. During some of my travels, with some hidden meanings, they unfolding in an unexpected way, and made me walk on spiritual and self discovering path, with some naturally rich saints. Enlightening many pores closed due to the hectic mind, but thinking the same thing. :) The experience enriched life with new meanings.

If you talk from your soul, you can feel trees communicating with you, a connection with earth and nature. Same way, giving up fear clear the doubts from life. :)

Alter/change western point of view on India.

2. Creative Understanding. :

We can enhance our knowledge on various things by exchange of our live`s experiences, culture, creative, music, photography, writing skills, theater, spiritual love, yoga life, religious outlooks or just various other subjects.

As a film maker I Worked on many successful advertisement, and small time documentaries, music videos,, and on various small films, (which most of them did not see the light of the day) :)

I try to make some interesting videos or films on different subjects, or themes from the real world. Would love to show case things in a different light, which can be quirky, funny and informational in same time. Idea is to capture real life, possibly in interesting way. Which made me start writing new subjects for my movie idea. :)

Besides other creative work, I like writing on film subjects (film scripts, which I will love to make :) ) and sometimes creative writing for advertisements.. :)

I have also worked with some interesting volunteers, on documentaries or videos or information collection. Like ecological balance, and cultural differences. Also, freelance produced for many production houses, National and International, for shooting in India.

Right now I am working towards making of my 1st feature film. Sametime, writing another feature film. Mostly, I am inclined towards action genre, dark truth, with satirical flavor. Being emotional and romantic comes naturally, and unlike Indian Films, (Bollywood Films) lead actress play a pivotal role in my stories. not just singing songs. :) Will start casting, after I finish my script, as well get its start up money :) . Also, will like similar passionate people to be part of the project when I get a go. :)


Accommodation, and Indian Food Cooked at HOME :

As we exchange / share life, you get to stay with me, and share the Indian food cooked at home, and nothing is charged.

You will get to see, the old and new of Mumbai. You will get to experince old western european styled houses, graffiti filled lanes. Giving an impression, for a while, that you are not in a big city But you are in the best part of Mumbai :) And eagles and birds visiting the windows, from time to time. And the room is shared.

As you share food quest, you get to taste the Indian food cooked at home, And I am a good cook, too.. The food can be made Vegan or vegetarian or non vegetarian. As i am good with all kinds of tastes. I am a foodie, so we can try some dishes together. Will love it if someone can teach me their dishes as well, and i can teach some really good Indian dishes.

City :

Magnetic Mumbai is known as a busy city, and a city of full of dreams to live, and fulfill. So you can have the best of the city has to offer in art, theater, movies, poor, rich, culture, food and party. :) Its like a country in one city, you find no where else, in the world.
Rest Mumbai has lot of stories of itself, and had been exploited by Indian filmmakers a lot, so you can experience those stories in real and share your cultural and travel life to the city. And together we can benefit by doing cultural exchange, and experiences.

I stay in a nice surroundings so you will get to experience different levels of living of India. and night life is quite active around here. So whenever we wish we can go for partying around the places. There is no issue with any kind of travel transport. And airport is 20-30 minutes away depending upon the traffic and arrival time. Seaside is ten minutes walk. If you wish to have an early morning jog or a late evening walk. :)
Its a break from hectic mind, travel, and thoughts. :)

So, if I will be free i can take you around enriching city on various shades of Indian life.

India:
She has to be experienced rather then understanding her. As this experience will enrich you, as you never thought it will. As she nurtures like a mother. :) So if you plan for India, you can ask me anything, as i might be help in that. I have travelled a bit around the country, and know its Rural and Urban nature, diverse minds, and rich heritage in various forms.
