I am writing to you on behalf of Anugraha, a Mumbai based design and publishing studio. This is specifically in connection with a documentary on the Kumbh Mela of Allahabad 2013 (titled: Conversations at the Kumbh Mela) that the studio has conceptualised and released recently.
This film is an attempt to capture the essence of the experiential aspects of being in that space at that time on the banks of the Ganga. It hopes to put spirit back into ancient, mythological stories handed down for generations, and dismiss the idea of faith as being merely a collection of uninformed and blind rituals.
Above the din echoed by the matrix of loudspeakers, you hear stories and afar from the crowds, you grow closer to faith. When you are but one drop in the sea of people, you realise how little you are. it is only when you are lost in the biggest gathering of people on earth, do you discover the Kumbh anew. Such are the paradoxes offered by the Maha Kumbhmela as you float from one experience to the next, drift from one story to the next.
We thought we could collaborate with you by screening this short documentary film, and holding a discussion thereafter for all those interested in the same. The film we will screen is called “Conversations at the Kumbh Mela” the trailer of which can be seen here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDx65owi3-Y&feature=youtu.be
