Roshni lives in the land of the Gods known as Dev Bhoomi and wants to travel to the land of Illusions, Mumbai city known as Maya Nagari.

The travel then extended to Dehradun, Uttarakhand where we interviewed Dr. Vandana Shiva a renowned scientist, quantum physicist and Vedic ecologist. She is the founder and director of Navdanya which is actively involved in the rejuvenation of indigenous knowledge and culture. It has created awareness on the hazards of genetic engineering and defended people’s knowledge from bio-piracy and food rights in the face of globalization. It has it’s own seedbank and organic farms spread over an area of 45 acres in Uttarakhand. We captured the compelling voice of the Indian classical vocalist and literary writer Vidya Rao as she sang verses from the devi-mahatmya in salutation to Earth as a mother and heard words of wisdom from former Governor of Uttarakhand Smt. Margaret Alva on the preservation of Indian knowledge. The process of making a documentary is one of discovery. By the time we finished, the story was nothing like we expected.
