India/Nepal Trip Has Come To an End

So my trip has ended, I was gone for about 9 months in the end, which is a long enough trip for me in India, atleast for the first time. India is a land of extremes and it tested me in many ways. My time spent on the road there taught me a few things, things about life and the world and things about myself. Its difficult for me to put it into words and explain in detail everything that happened as i am still absorbing everything. So much experience in so little time is a shock to the mind, it will take me some time to really be able to sum up such an amazing experience. Or perhaps I will never be able to sum it up in which case it will remain a mystery which might be better. After all India is a land of ancient traditions and mystery above all else and its secrets are not easily uncovered though they do exist in everyday life all around us everyday.

Remembering India. A short film about my travels in south india.

I shot this earlier this year in Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India. An incredible place, so full of culture. The Meenakshi Amman Temple is an historic Hindu temple located in the holy city of Madurai in India. It is dedicated to Lord Shiva - who is known here as Sundareswarar or Beautiful Lord- and his consort, Parvati who is known as Meenakshi. The temple forms the heart and lifeline of the 2500 year old city of Madurai.
