Suppose you come near me, and I grab hold of your arm and make it hard for you to leave me. Tell me would you like it? Then why do you like films/ music/art work/ that grabs and holds your attention like that. Why are we as a society promoting this?
My films are not designed to be like that. They haven’t been designed to force people to sit and pay attention to me. As if I own the key to the solutions to their problems. My films are not designed to be like that. They are inspired by the films of Bella Tarr , Abbas Kiarostami, Music of Pundit Ravi Shankar, Pundit Shiv Kumar Sharma and the art of Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollack. We do not want to force anyone into anything. We simply create because we love creating. We have a good time making stuff. I am sure if you participated in it then it would also make you feel the same. But you are always free to leave us whenever you want. We don’t want to take away your freedom. We don’t want to throw hooks at you as if you were some kind of a fish and we were fish hunting. No, that’s violence. There is already too much violence. There is already too much suffering. We don’t want you to suffer because you didn’t pay attention to us. We respect your time. We respect your freedom. We respect you and your view points. We just want to share what we like. It is not necessary that you would like it too. We are no gods. We are no celestial super intellectual beings. We are not your guarding angles. We are just like you. We are people who have found a little solace. We are people who have found a little happiness. You are most welcomed to be a part of it. But at the same time you are also most welcomed to leave it whenever you please. You are free. We are free. You are ok. We are ok. Namaste.
