My Photo
Name:
Location: bombay, India

Son of a soldier, I was born in Sultanganj in Bhagalpur district, Bihar. My childhood days were spent in an earthy rural life. I was deeply inspired by the rich folk culture of Buddha’s own land, Bihar. Right from the beginning, I Grew up with real images of Melas, Ramleelas, Bahuripiyas, incredible rituals, strong religious milieu and the vibrant Mithila Art. Natural calamities like flood and drought gifted unforgettable images. Changing seasons of rural life on the bank of river Ganga matured into a sense of poetry and language. Wonder years passed chasing steam trains that passed through the fields of my native village. Listening to radio programs made for defense personals was my only window to the outside world. With such a treasure of inspirational experiences a story teller evolved. I am a practicing film maker in Bombay today.

Hi Jha ji

Came here through someone's blog. Could relate to some stuff on your profile and also saw the KV logo on the blog. Have you been a KV student ? I was looking for some of my old school mates who attended one particular school with me ( which was quite long ago ), would you know if they have compiled a list of students somewhere on the net ?? Not much info about students when I clicked on the KVS link.

BTW, good blog. But, I guess you already know that :-)

Will visit again and hope you can answer my query !
