Storyline

11-year old Neelkanth has long dreamed of being a Yogi, and in the darkness of the rainy evening of June 29, 1792 he secretly leaves his family behind in the Northern India city of Ayodhya by plunging himself into the Saryu river at flood stage.

Mystic India, A Must See
27 February 2006 | by pramukh1921See all my reviews

This was a great non-fiction, true account of a young boy's journey through India. It shows the courage, persistence, and knowledge of a young Indian boy, while depicting the magnificence of the Indian land, people, and festivals. This is a must see film for any fan of culture, history, and magnificence; a student of architecture or beauty; or anyone who wishes to spend their time watching an enjoyable film. This great film will broaden your horizons for and toward the magnificence that is India, the beauty of its festivals, and the true nature of its people. The film, which started as one boy's journey, to attain true spiritual knowledge, does not end with his final footsteps, but it is a journey that begins within each and every person as they marvel at the magnanimous nature of this boy's travels and spiritual intent.
