The documentary film finds its beginning , born out of the need to explore existing geographical & political boundaries of India, juxtaposed with, human, emotional & spiritual bridges . Geographically speaking , India is a peninsula .Three sides are flanked by water . Specifically the east , west & south .Incidentally , the north too , is serrated by mighty rivers . This makes boundaries of India fluid , inclusive & accessible to our neighbours. The same adjectives interpreted in the political jargon means , menace of porosity, infiltration & threat to security. The magnitude and the irony of this dichotomy is the need to address this subject , as a film.
In a sometimes dark and hopeless world , we need stories reminding us of the constructive options that are always present .
The film is to engage , enthuse , envision a new-found look at liquid borders .
