Copenhagen to Cape Town

Glad to hear that my paper boat is still continuing a successful sail to places with the message of global warming scenario. The film is on its way to Cape Town, South Africa. To be honest with you, until the film won the prize at Copenhagen Climate Change conference, I was never been an environmentalist - though I was always been an admirer of nature. It did hurt me a lot when the trees were cut down at G.N Chetty Road, T-Nagar in Chennai city where I was working. I have experienced the impact of trees on the atmosphere just by living in MCC during summer. The climate inside the 365-acre forestland where Madras Christian College stands is much different when compared to the city outside the campus, during peak summer. The very moment you step into the campus there is a peaceful chillness that gets sucked into your spine and if it is windy, it will give you Goosebumps.

While doing the film, I never thought that the film could have this reach to these many hearts with the message, we believed in. Thanks a ton for the cast and crew for the support and the 1minutetosavetheworld team for taking it to places. The latest news I received from the team is that ‘My Paper Boat’ is on its journey to Africa. The film is now selected as the opening film at Southern Youth Film Festival at Cape Town, South Africa. I will also be performing a different task in my life that I have never done before - being one among the judges for the film competition for this year by www.1minutetosavetheworld.com .Hoping to witness some fantastic films in a third persons eye.
