Table For All
A family member that goes unnoticed or maybe just hidden underneath heaps of textbooks and trinkets, a dining table is so much more than a piece of furniture. It's also seen as a neutral space, waving a flag of peace and becoming the unsaid "settler of house turmoil". It ages with everyone in the house and starts each day with the hope to see the entire family having a meal together.

Weaving A Livelihood
Made in collaboration with Radhika Sharma, this audio documentary addresses weaving as a lifestyle with focus on a small town Anekal, Karnataka. From a town known for its small community of handloom silk weavers, emerge stories of the weathered handloom, family legacies of craftsmanship, decadent silk saris and poor conditions; stories of capitalistic enterprise and the well-oiled powerloom. This piece guides you through with bits from the production process, distribution and the consumer end of the spectrum, traces of Gandhian philosophy, some Marx and the everyday efforts of the weavers to make ends meet. Interviews with Mr. Venkatapathy, Mr. Srinivasa, Mr. Purushottam, Ramesh Vasalli Natesh TN and Shobana Matthews have enriched the documentary. Voiceovers in English by Atish Padhy, Aleser Murtaza, Rishi Venkateswaran and Gp Capt (Retd.) M S Sridhar

Who is a pedestrian? A person who walks the same roads everyday to reach the same places, a person who wanders and gets lost like meaning deferred in a sentence or is it a person who stops once in a while to marvel at what lies around and ahead? This podcast is an experiential/experimental one where we go on a walk. Our words tango in a synchronous fashion with the music by Advaith Jaikumar bearing tiny hints of whimsical jazz and the blues coupled with some Indian classical instruments. The music wanders along with your footsteps and mind giving a language to the feet; to walking. An experience awaits.
