The problem, the live performance and the movie

The globe appeared on helplessly as tragedy overtook the people of the Swat valley caught in the crossfire of war. As generally the finest sufferers had been the small children.

Salman, physician, musician, crusader for peace and justice, is also an previous good friend, so when he asked if I would like to ship a concept from India for his live performance to increase awareness about circumstances in the Swat valley, of training course I was joyful to do it.

I believed to steer clear of the cliches of of friendship that normally involve showing Indian and Pakistani flags waving in harmony. As an alternative I took my digital camera into a Mumbai slum where so a lot of of the powerless and penniless reside and face day by day indignities and uncertainties and yet retain their spirit of resistance.

What has resulted is a concept from the economically displaced small children of India to the militarily displaced small children of Pakistan.
