The singing of trees
Primary Red of Secular-Right India writes:
There is much majesty in all our lands & people, obscured by all our modernity. This is why many personal & intellectual revolutions happen during journeys without destinations.Beautifully put.
Given this, how is it that so few of us travel through India, abandoning the trappings of our status in life, catching up on what India really is? How is it that few expressions in our cinema and literature are of these journeys of real people?
Why is India's matinee icon an angry young man, not an adventurous young idealist?
Why do our actors sing around trees rather than standing still for the singing of trees?
