Assisting in Documentary Film-Making on Indian Cultural Heritage

CFPS is committed to the preservation and promotion of Indian heritage. To that end, we are extensively assisting noted Delhi-based production house Muskan Productions in making documentary films on ancient Indian writing patterns (or scripts) in which a wealth of ancient wisdom, in fields ranging from philosophy, polity and science (including herbal medicine), has been recorded. These films are being made for the Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA), an autonomous body under the aegis of the Ministry of Culture. Thus far, films have been made on the Brahmi, Kharoshthi and  Sharada scripts. CFPS members MilindaSengupta and Vishal Tripathi were engaged in extensive research and Fahad Khan assisted in the scripting. Sudhanva Shetty, Fahad Khan, Karan Bidani and Ieshan Vinay Misri were involved in the process of shooting and editing the films.
