I have also worked with some movie directors(India) associating them with script writing, pre production and post production for documentary movies on Indian Regional Folk arts.
sometimes I keep writing my own experiences, incidents, funny happenings. This hobby made me to come out with a Book ! Experiencing the culture, environment, customs, the life style of America, I wrote this Book, which explains how it feels when a normal person from India for the first time go through the challenges and changes in America.
I have couple of stories written for Indie Movie. Looking for support.
