Vidur’s Film Diary – March 2015


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           APRIL 01, 2015           06.00 P.M.

[ DECLARATION : In my film diary, since May 2014, I have started mentioning names of only those students, who respect me as their teacher and accept and regard my contribution in their journey of life. All the other students, who worked this month but are not mentioned here, are the ones, who refuse to acknowledge me in any way. I can sense their abhorrence to my personality. I am not a sweet-talker. So I know that somewhere they were rubbed the wrong way . I also feel their attachment to the people, who claim to be the re-incarnation of Constantine Stanislavsky and are sweeter than any sweet delicacy on this earth . Such students are free from any obligation from my side. GOD BLESS THEM ! ]

 

My journey continues without such students . It marches ahead without their support . It flourishes despite their criticism and false propaganda . For the full understanding of my body of work in 2013 – 2014 & 2014 – 2015, please watch the 05 video posted below :
