Director’s Note:
The mix of modern gadgets and depth in Indian literature is an endeavour for returning to the roots of human existence and finding solace for the predicament of modern man through certain eternal values and spiritual transcendence. It is to say that we must enhance our family values. We should treat a girl child likewise we treat our male child. We should make our sons understand that Women are not merchandise, torturing them mentally and physically does not glorify the male ego. Values must go deep into our systems, our cultures and so to our posterity.
