dolat ram’s question

I have been trying in the last few months to get out there and film.

I bought the camera, the expensive camera bag, the radio mike, the monopod, the sling bag, the shoes, the laptop, the editing software. And I even have the idea.

But since I made the 2 hour documentary from which this 1 minute is extracted, I have lost my naiveté, and I find myself, in a long, long time, with a blank in my head, or rather with confusion and questions, instead of even a semblance of certainty.

I am finally asking myself the same questions that this old mendicant, Dolat Ram, outside a temple in Bhuj, asked me one evening, 10 years ago.

Perhaps soon my keyboard or my camera or both, will find an answer.

    • Shabnam, I used only this bit for my film. But I do have another half hour at least with him in my rushes. I would have loved to follow him, but the next day, he just avoided me and my camera😦
