Years ago my grandmother gave me some old films (back from before the video days) of when I was a wee lad (1-3 years old). A couple years ago I converted them to VHS tape, and lately I have been wanting to convert this to a digital format to better preserve it. I had to do the needful (as they might say in India) and made a DVD of the film to keep. So, since it is done I am sharing it with you. The original films of course didn’t have audio so I added some music by Snatam Kaur.
When I was editing the video Narayan kept pointing to the video saying “That’s me!”…and I would say… “No…that’s ME when I was little”. It’s funny…because many of my kid pictures he thinks are him. I guess he is my son…right? I think Narayan mostly looks like Narayan…but he definitely has some Gurumustuk features.
One thing I noticed with the film was that even back then I had a lot of energy and moved pretty fast. My Aries nature makes me a speedster…always zipping around.
In the film you’ll see me, my mother and father, grandmother and other friends of mine from way back then. It’s not an action packed film…but it is a cool glimpse back at when I was little.
