Mr. Ghose is a serious man, concerned about the direction of his society and the need for sustainable development that respects the planet and eco-system, and cares for people more than “ugly naked profit motive.” He sees his film as being about the many Indias within India. “We need profit to survive but when it’s naked and ugly — without concern for the environment, without any concern for human lives then it becomes terrible…we can learn so much from the tribals about sustainable living. Development has to be sustainable. It’s not immediate. So the moment you create that immediacy — a lot of profits immediately, then so many things remain in the dark and bound to collapse.”

Historically significant, “1975″ is an exhibition that presents the contributions of diasporic Cambodian artists in the construction of a post-war and post-genocide society.

Inspired by Mahatma Gandhi’s Salt March of 1930 — a nonviolent protest made by thousands of people over ten days to challenge the British salt monopoly in colonial India — Soul March reinterprets the refrain sung by the marchers over 80 years ago: “Raghupathi Raghava Raja Ram…(Lord of infinite mercy and compassion, Help us to find our grace and wisdom)”
At the album release party, Chandrika gave a spirited performance for a gathering of family, friends and colleagues. Her music really does lift the soul.
