Like other great civilisations - Greece or Egypt for example, over the millennia it has enjoyed not just one but several brilliant golden ages in art and culture. Its great thinkers and religious leaders have permanently changed the face of the globe. But while the glories of Rome, Egypt, and Greece, have all been the subject of TV portraits, as yet there has been no television story of India on our screens. This series sets out for the first time to do that:
Filmed over the course of two weeks in earlyMother India gives a glimpse into the life of unaccompanied children as they seek to survive on a daily basis.
While the film follows David and Shawn as they develop relationships with the entire group, in-depth interviews with seven of the kids provide insight into the magnitude of their individual pain and struggle. While other documentaries may focus on broad statistics, Mother India seeks to understand life through the eyes of the orphan… The challenge of begging to simply survive.
The discomfort of sleeping on the streets. The danger and tragedies of train-hopping. The joy found in the simplest things of life The interdependance of relationships.
The hope of a second chance. As David and Shawn developed relationships with each of the kids, they were inspired to do more than just tell their stories.
They saw the need, and they had to take action. What transpires is both inspiring and heart-breaking. Millions of Unaccompanied Kids During an initial trip to India in December ofDavid and Shawn were immediately drawn in by the striking eyes of unaccompanied children living in urban slums and remote villages.

Can you imagine your child… Digging through the trash to find food? Begging for change just to survive? Bathing in water where animals are washed?Story. The original Ramayana written by the 4th c. sage Valmiki comprised of seven “kandas” or books.

A brief summary of the Ramayana story (Sanskrit epic). Quick guide to the Ramayana Background. The Ramayana is an ancient Sanskrit epic which follows Prince Rama's quest to rescue his beloved wife Sita from the clutches of Ravana with the help of an army of monkeys.
It is traditionally attributed to the authorship of the sage Valmiki and dated to around BCE to BCE. David Lean's studied, plodding, overanalytic direction manages to kill most of the meaning in E.M. Forster's haunting novel of cultural collision in colonial India%(21).
