Bharat Katha

"Bharat Katha" is a collection of real stories of real people from India.

Bhārat is the official Sanskrit name of India, Bhārat Ganarājya, and the name is derived from the ancient Indian texts, the Puranas.

Katha (story) is a folk narrative style of story telling.

Bharat Katha is a journey to the heart of India, crossing language, cultural and regional boundaries. These stories are from all different kinds of people about their lives, their views and their beliefs -- beliefs which have been held together through generations.

How do I find them? - I'd like to think I found them but in truth... most of the time they are waiting to be found to share their story - The India Story.

Who am I ? - I am a man with a camcorder.

Joker Minister of India

Meet the joker minister of India. He rides his bicycle hundreds of kilometres every year to visit the mother Poorna temple up in the Himalayas. He has been consistently coming from the last 26 years in the blistering heat of the Indian summer with temperatures soaring higher than 45 degrees.

I stumbled upon him on the last day of my trip as I was walking back early morning from my photography walk.

People ask me how do you find them and as I say - I think I found them but in reality but they’re waiting to be found to share their story - the India story.

So sit back and enjoy the story of Kuldeep Saxena with subtitles.
