Touching, insightful drama about Swadhyaya, a grassroots phenomenon
Good cast directed by a solid director. Good music, too, not the usual hollywood/bollywood stuff.
This movie is an insightful look at the impact of Swadhyaya on the lives of several individuals, some from an Indian city, some from Indian villages. This movie not only tells a touching story, but also is a genuine attempt to capture the essence of the Swadhyaya experience.
Swadhyaya, literally meaning study of self, or self study, has changed the lives of millions of people around the world, beginning in India.
Check it out - it's really quite good.
