In July 2018, I spoke with students in a media class at the Siddhartha School in Stok, Ladakh, about ... many things, including the art of filmmaking to tell your story.  I said it is important to develop a bright head and a skillful hand, but without the third important element - a kind heart - you will not produce good work.  So develop those three important skill-sets!

I think filmmaking is one of the most important tools if you want to bring any change to society. Don’t have any inhibitions about this field. Films can change lives and society. Life as a filmmaker is a little challenging but it is a very satisfying life. We will all die one day but our films will be there for thousand years. So keep making good movies!
