Woman from the East | Kudessan

"Woman from the East," releasing globally Sept 27th, 2013. Please check this film out, a very well done film based on true stories of human trafficking and the quest to have a son. See more details here. www.womanfromtheeast.biz

Please help support filmmakers such as Jeet Matharru who have put their heart and soul into conveying this heartbreaking issue to the world to help bring about change. I had the opportunity to watch ascreening last year as well as meet the director thereafter. He was passionate about bringing change and using his artform allowed him to do that so very creatively. Excellent story line and sound quality.

Secret Daughter by Shilpi Somaya Gowda

"Secret Daughter," was a FANTASTIC read as many of you suggested. A book by www.shilpigowda.com will be adapted by Canadian filmmaker Deepa Mehta soon.

I finally got around to reading it and could not put it down. I was captivated with Kavita's story line, felt like I was in India experiencing the sights, sounds and smells. The author was inspired to write this book after a visit to an orphanage in India. The stories of motherhood are engaging, families are all created differently. The family you create is more important than the one you're born into. It focuses on infanticide, abandonment and how differently people value a girl.

Enjoyed it very much! smiley
