'Bharat, Prakriti Ka Balak' addresses essence of Bharat: Deepika Kothari

Panaji, Nov 27 (UNI) Dr Deepika Kothari, director of documentary film “Bharat, Prakriti Ka Balak”, has said that the film addresses the essence of Bharat.
Speaking to the media on the sidelines of the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) being held here, she said, “Bharat is not just a piece of land that we have gained upon independence in 1947.
We have tried to show all our cultural traditions, philosophical beliefs and ancient knowledge in our documentary series.” The documentary relies on evidence from geography, history, ancient texts and notes from scholars, Dr Kothari said.
“There is a lot of this evidence, which is not usually incorporated in scholastic textbooks, people are unaware of this,” she added.
Dr Kothari said the documentary had covered everything, ranging from the festivals of the country to the culture of tribes belonging to various parts of India.
“The film is woven into this cinematic piece of art with music, dance and of course, with knowledge. It’s very educational and scholarly no doubt, but it will also tell the world the rich values that we have inherited,” she added.
The research part of any documentary is the toughest part, says Dr. Kothari.
On the research part of the film, she said, “For this documentary series, we travelled across the globe. We travelled to 194 archaeological sites in India and abroad; we have collected a lot of documents from across the world, we came across the best of relics, sculptures and manuscripts.'
She said the documentary has been divided into 20 episodes of 25 minutes each and uploaded on YouTube for the public to see.
The film was screened in the Indian Panorama Non Feature Film section of the festival.
