“Film provides an opportunity to marry the power of ideas with the power of images.” 

Steven Bochco, American TV Writer and Producer 

They say 1 video = 1.8 million words. Videos transport you to that moment in time when key events happened. Sometimes, you have to watch videos of events to understand the importance of what Global Indians or PIOs have achieved. Think about Mirabai Charu’s Olympic gold winning moment at Tokyo 2021. Or the video of Jawaharlal Nehru’s ‘Tryst with Destiny’ speech. Words or pictures alone cannot do justice in capturing such moments immortalized by desis across the world.
