We got the opportunity to interview some dynamic people during the course of filming. Roshni and her husband Jaidev are apple farmers and residents of Raogi village situated in Kullu, Himachal Pradesh. Dr. Om Kumar Sharma is a Sanskrit scholar and school principal of Sri Vyas Sanskrit Mahavidyalaya in Kullu. Shani Baba has built the Shani Nageshwar temple in Kullu. It is the first temple of it’s kind in reverence of the God of Fate, Saturn.

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 Mother Earth 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.
