Born in London, Shubhra has all the sensitivity and spirituality of the east and the fine art of understanding, appreciating Aesthetics and absorbing and delivering Art Practices of the west.

He as an international filmmaker has been making films for the past five years. Even after doing a Masters in Film Direction from ESCAC, University of Barcelona, he considers his father Kumar Vandit as his first guru because he played an important role in guiding him through his journey as a filmmaker. He believes in working in all genres and formats. In a very short span of time he has met with significant success with social documentaries and fictional drama in Europe. Based on his profile last year Cannes Film Festival officials invited him for the festival. In a chit-a-chat with Newsband, filmmaker Shubhra Vandit opens out about his journey.

Excerpts:

Tell us how your filmmaking journey initiated, were you interested in filmmaking during your school days or there were some other goals?

It’s a very interesting journey, my father being a filmmaker himself so as a kid we use to often read those VHS cassettes and watch that on TV and really use to enjoy it after long day of shoot. I watch my father shoot and for me it wasn’t about filmmaking, but a bunch of people working together and lot of energy at place which I didn’t use to find at other work places. I find it very interesting and that was my childhood. But then jump to 2011-12, that was the first time when I went to the Mumbai Film Festival and I watched two movies that had a very profound effect on me. One movie was “Once upon a time in America” by Sergio Leone and other one was “Sunrise a song of two humans” and the movie was from 1927. Martin Scorsese always talk about that as a filmmaker don’t go to movie to learn something from it, but go to film to see that its speaks to you. I have learned about this quote much later in my life, but this was what exactly what happened with me when I was watching those films. It resonates with me I understands that, whatever is happening on the screen was so powerful so that was the beginning of my filmy journey. And then it so happened that I worked with my father after my graduation and that was interesting. I made some documentaries and social message films and then I decided to do master in film direction. I went to Spain to do masters. The thing about Spain master’s degree was that it was very intensive course and it was taught in Spanish language and I did not know a word in Spanish. The reason I did that was because it is very easy to be in your comfort zone in your own city where you have your own home and friends and try and learn something. But the movement you step out of your comfort zone where you enter in a land where you doesn’t speak your language and you don’t know anyone. I think at this movement the cosmic play come into picture where things happen to you if you take an effort. If you keep sitting at home nothing can happen. It is a brilliant way to propel yourself to take action and to achieve your goals. They always says that always do the things when you are not prepared to do that because you will have to not only do your things but also have to fight other circumstances which will keep you on the track. The latest Jurassic Park movie which you would have seen was been directed by the alumni of my school which is a big thing for me.

Let us know about the movie which has been made by you which is appreciated by the masses?

The thing is that my effort in filmmaking is that because films are such a powerful medium; I feel that it should be used for the social betterment. We should at least try and convey issues that are not bring to the light by other mediums and also the issues which are not addressed by the people. One of the films that I made in Spain was called, ‘L ‘estoc’ which is in French and this is very interesting thing, and these are the group of intellectually challenged designer who take waste products recycle them and create amazing furniture. Now the thing is that by seeing their intellect speed disable they are autistic. So they don’t actually work for any NGO, they own their own company. In India there are so many NGO’s who employs disabled people. But here they are not employed by any NGO’s but they are the proprietor of their own company. Not only they are artist but also a businessman. Such a brilliant idea it was, so when we made this film the government of Barcelona picked up this film and they showed it in different institutions as a means of motivation and it was an achievement and great moment for me. You humble by your work and that was the idea of the film so that it can reach the masses. Their efforts are brought to life and that was the main idea. It won at many film festivals. It has won the Best Film Award – at the ‘Paris Play Film Festival’, and was an Official Selection; at the ‘Barcelona Human Rights Film Festival’ it was also at the Niece Filmmakers Festival and many other festivals. And the idea of the film was that their voice should reach to the people and that was the best thing which I can do through my film.

What’s your genre and forte?

Apart from social films, I have also made drama and romantic films. But my idea is always to have, the genre is not so much of the attention the idea can be anything and one can make it into comedy, drama and horror film. Look at Charlie Chaplin all the different shoes were so so grave, there was somebody who is living on the street which is not so funny things but he made it a film which is comedy film which will make you laugh but at the same time it will make you think that what about the guy who is living that life. I have made documentaries and also working on drama films. But I would also like to explore drama films. As a kid I use to practice martial arts. Bruce Lee philosophy has a very powerful impact on me. So I would like to pursue something in action.

Being a director which production houses would you like to work in India and even on foreign land?

I have been a director-writer actually and most of the films are written by me. And I always use to look after working with different writers and directors and producers. The kind of film which I have made in India is doing quite well. There are many digital platforms and also web series is doing a great job. I can say that web series has opened a whole new avenue for the story-tellers and the filmmakers. So definitely the kind of work Anurag Kashyap is doing and by Excel Entertainment of Farhan Akhtar and even Zoya Akhtar is doing a very marvelous job. That being said, apart from that there are lots of production houses which I know.

 Will you be approaching any production houses with your stories because nowadays production houses are willing to invest in the films if the content is good, comment?

The kind of a trend which I have followed till now is that I love to travel to explore new culture and that was the reason I did my masters in filmmaking in Spain. I feel I want to continue doing that, going to new destinations, new lands with new languages and make films over there and adopt their culture and portray that in my films. As vast this world is the human emotions are limited. You feel happy when you achieve something, you feel happy when somebody has done something for you, you feel sad when somebody breaks up this is regardless of the culture. So these emotions are absolute, but the journey of the people are very different and that something I am very passionate about.

Let us know about your favorite directors in India and Internationally?

In India I remember watching Satyajit Ray’s a port orology and that has such a profound impact on me because the way he incorporated and a realism in his character and I felt like how you bring those things to portray on the screen and that was something which I was really touched with. And internationally there are so many Martin Scorsese is my Guru and I am looking forward to collaborating with him at some point of my life.  There are of course some as old school if you talk about F W Monroe from Germany and so many Italian directors. I remember watching “Rome Open City” and “Bicycle Thieves” and they have such a profound impact because they are old films.

Which Indian actors would you like to work with?

I loved the work of Ranbir Kapoor in the movie Sanju because the way he enacted the character was really great and it reminded me of Will Smith who enacted the character of Mohammed Ali. You will feel that you are really watching Sanjay Dutt and Mohammad Ali. I can say hats off to them. I also liked the acting of Alia Bhatt in Highway and I said wow that is superb acting.

What your views on Philosophy of Life and People?

I am here for emotions and experiences. Follow’s Bruce Lee’s philosophy – Absorb what is useful, discard what is not, add what is essentially your own. So the idea is not to be stuck with any belief system, continually re-evaluate yourself. ‘Better an ‘Oops’ than a ‘What if’…Always fascinated with what drives people, how making one choice over other affects the quality of their lives.

Talk about the achievements of all your films?

My film, ‘L’estoc’  ‘Street Talk’ was screened at the ‘Bibliocurts de Barcelona’ and has a mention by the Government website of Barcelona and many other websites. Social media mentions like tweets by ‘CatalanVoices’, an offshoot of the Government body, ‘Public Diplomacy Council of Catalunya, Diplocat’, have appreciated my work as a “unique perspective”. In Mumbai too, my film, ‘Street Talk’ was selected by MAMI, Mumbai Film Festival and was screened, receiving critical appreciation. Street Talk is one more such a film that speaks of sad and happy philosophical lessons of life learnt by the chief character. Las Ventanas is actually a window to the mind and heart of the protagonists who were deep lovers and becomes a window to your soul after you take in their experiences which had an official screening at the Cinema Club Competition, Barcelona. Paola takes you on an intimate journey. Having struggled with body-image herself, Paola De Grenet captures mesmerizing photos of her brave subjects, who also deal with self-image and body-conflict.

What moved you to make the film on Differently-abled and other offbeat subjects like Street talk and Paola?

Since childhood, I was reserved by nature. With Hip-hop and then with films, I found my belongingness. The subjects of these films had struggled with similar issues in their lives and they found their belongingness in their professions. I related with their struggle. Hence I wanted to spread their stories.

Your film ‘Windows’ is again different, especially the editing is like a maze walk, as you oscillate between past and present, thoughts and reality – how did you develop this style?

I always find myself delving in introspection and retrospection. I feel that your future depends on what choices you make. Every choice you make leads to further choices and these choices define the quality of your life. KRS ONE, a Hip Hopper and philosopher – spoke about a visualization method – what advise the 5 – 10 years elder you would give the now, you. And then make your choice accordingly.

Let us know about your future projects and also the social message of your films?

I am currently working on a multi-national film about an Indian orphan girl – a poignant story of the unfolding of her life. While in Mumbai, I’m also making Public Service Films. One of my recent productions, ‘The Lonely Chair’ about old age abandonment has just been completed and is due to do its festival rounds.The social message of my films is subtle, deep and universally applicable. Having met with considerably success with the government as well as common public in Europe, I am keen that the profound social message also reaches the people in various parts of India. Apart from social importance, my films are culturally relevant, now more than ever.

“Music (singing) & Spirituality gives me inspiration to live life to the fullest”

Vinod Trivedi, Chairman of Progressive Group, is a well-known name among the builder fraternity in the city. Their projects are one of the best in Navi Mumbai. He also encourages and inspires others in the city through his singing and multi-talents. He was interested in singing during his school days but didn’t get a chance to prove his mettle because the family members wanted him to pursue the family business.  But the love for singing and presenting it to the audience was the aim and goal which turned into reality at the age of 59. He started getting trained from his Guruji Dr. Vikram Parlikar and devoted himself fully to it and now singing has become a part and parcel of life.  Vinod Ji has served as a president of Builder Association of Navi Mumbai (BANM). He is a hard-core social worker and works in many social and religious organizations as a President or Trustee. His wife Indu Trivedi has supported him in all his endeavors and because of her he has achieved a lot in his life. Progressive Group business carried out jointly with himself and his two highly capable sons Devang Trivedi and Jigar Trivedi. Both sons and family encourages Vinod Ji in music and social work. He feels they are blessed family and happiest of the lot. In a candid conversation with Newsband Sr.Correspondent Abhitash D. Singh, Vinod Trivedi shares in length about his journey.

Excerpts

Let us know how your singing career started and how’s the journey till now?

I was having singing talent since my young days but could not pursue music further because the financial condition of the family was so-so. I was born Pre-Independence in 1946. During that time the country was not so prosperous which we can see now. During that time population point of view there were around 8-10 sisters and brothers in each families. Today the case is “Hum Do Hamare Do” and now it is “Hum Do Hamare Ek” also in some case. In today’s generation one try to find the talent in their sons, daughters, grandsons and granddaughters at very early age and if they are good in particular skills they are trained in it so there is lots of scope for today’s generation. But in our time we were told to study and then get good job and business and support the family. So at that time there was no room for our talents and hobbies. Since I was having a good voice and also a social worker and holding senior position at many trust and organization I use to get opportunity to sing at various programs. I thought that if I am getting the opportunity and God is helping me then I should sing in a systematic and right way, therefore I started taking training in singing from Dr.Vikram Parlikar at the age of 58-59 and got trained from him for 11 years in light music because at this age getting trained in classical music was difficult. After getting trained my albums came out. My first album was “Bhakti ki Ganga” and 2nd one was “Mere Ghar Aaaye Ganpati” and my latest album which came out is “Hare Krishna- Journey of Iskcon”. My first two albums were also telecasted on Sanskar Channel. It is an achievement for me that my Bhajans got telecasted on international channel. I also initiated a video CD of my Bhanjans and also did shooting of it in temples at various places like Pune, Mumbai and also got opportunity to shoot in Siddhivinayak Temple. Today also one of my Bhajan “Main Sharan Tumhari Aaya Hu” is played at Siddhivinayak Temple occasionally. I have presented 150 Live Shows in which I have sung Filmy songs, Ghazals and Bhajans, but mostly I do bhakti songs. I do 1/3rd of filmy songs and 2/3rd of Bhajans programs.

Who motivated you or are you your own inspiration?

My nature is that whatever I do, I does it with heart be it business, writing, social work. I am true to that particular thing it is not that I do it for proving to others. After entering into singing field and by the blessings of Saraswati Mata and Guruji’s good training I worked really hard and the best part is that I kept on getting the opportunities. I was crazy and it’s my belief that if you are not mad in any profession than you will not go that extra miles to achieve that particular goal or aim.

You started your journey late so don’t you regret it, because if you would have started at early age you would have reached some different level, Comment?

My co-singer and artist always say me that if I would have started 15 years back than I would be really at different level. But whatever I am now I am content and happy. Starting late at the age of 59 and reaching at this level in just 13 years’ time is also an achievement for me. The big achievement under my belt is doing 54 episodes of “Geet ki Bat Vinod Trivedi ke Sath” on FM Vividh Bharti as an Anchor and Singer.I was very lucky to get approved as anchor and singer for Geet ki Bat radio show, as their selection criteria are very tough. I will say one should be happy in whatever he has, why to cry on the things which we don’t have with us.

Nowadays there are many platforms for the youngsters today in singing which were not at your time, how important these opportunities are for them, Comment?

Due to improvement and prosperity in the country nowadays younger boys and girls are getting lots of opportunities to prove themselves. Also parents are encouraging their child which was not the case during our time.  And nowadays Karaoke is in demand so already the orchestra is ready for the singers and they don’t have to go anywhere. Nowadays there is a singer in every home. Earlier there were thousand singers but now there are lakh of singers so the competition has grown. So in competitions time you need lots of hard work. One more thing is that today’s young generation singers are not taking proper and systematic training, I am not saying these for all but there are many who get training through Karaoke. The real training is when you sit with Harmonium and Tabla and also your Guruji sit along with you and there you are trained and learns music systematically. Karaoke is a fast food, the way fast food is not good for health same way Karaoke is just for hobby. But if one want to make career in singing than he or she need to take proper training in it. But in today’s generation there is lack of patience for learning basic music.

What will be your message to today’s youngsters who are inspiring singer or in any art?

God have created everyone with some unique talent. So first of all one should find out what special talent they have. And then accordingly need to find out whether I am good singer, writer, musician, artist, actor, director, recordist or actor.  There is no ending of art. One should do a fundamental hard work and should take a proper training. One should go deep and work hard and not just for showing to others. Any art form needs training. Whatever you do you should have good talent in it, good mentor, and hard work and struggle to achieve it. One must love and get fully involved in training of any form of art.

Which all singers’ songs do you sing in your program?

I sing songs of K L Saigal, Mukesh, Hemant Kumar, Manna Dey, Jagjit Singh, Kishore Kumar and many others. I sing in my own voice buy try my level best to bring them alive through my songs. Luckily lyrics of about 100 Bhajans and Filmy songs are in memory, so easy to feel and sing songs.

Do you go through riyaz for singing?

Yes, I do riyaz practically every day for an hour. And that is the reason I am able to sing nicely at the age of 73. My co-singers and another people who meet me think that I am not 73 but much younger. According to me singing is a complete yoga. In singing you can practice yoga, pranayam, meditation, puja and stress buster. Music is a therapy. It keeps one away from many diseases and improves the life and keeps you young in spirit. I also write articles in magazines.

Give encouraging message for the Navi Mumbaikar’s?

My message for the Navi Mumbaikars will be that everyone should develop one hobby if possible because person with hobby will never feel lonely. Hobby serves as aims and objective in living life.

“I am first member of Naik Family in Darave Gaon to enter politics”

Ranjeet Naik in a very short span of time augmented to the post of Mahamantri of BJP Yuva Morcha, Navi Mumbai, from just being a young worker. It was possible because of his loyalty, dedication and determination to the party. He is not so qualified in education but his thoughts for doing something constructive for the youth of Navi Mumbai pulled him into politics. In a candid conversation with Newsband Correspondent Abhitash D. Singh, Ranjeet Naik talks in detail about how and why he entered the politics and also about how excited he is to meet the Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis at his Varsha Bungalow.

Excerpts:

Tell us whether you were interested in politics since your young days or someone motivated later to enter into politics?

Frankly speaking I was never inclined to enter into politics. No one in my family members were in politics, I am the first in the family to enter politics. I am not so highly educated; I have just studied till 10thStandard. I have also worked as a milk vendor during my school days and then later I started my own Real Estate business and now I am also a developer. Sunil Patil who is corporator from Seawoods Darave BJP Party has been very much instrumental in bringing me into politics. I use to be with him and attend all the meetings and also do correspondence as a party worker when he was in Congress Party. I within eight months learned all the essential things needed to be a politician and social worker. Also Manda Mhatre who considers me like her son motivated me to join BJP Party as a party worker and later seeing my work she promoted me to the post of BJP Yuva Morcha, Mahamantri, Navi Mumbai. During MLA election I helped Manda Tai to take her to the Ganpati Mandal in my area in Seawoods Darave and introduced her to the people of my area and also campaigned for her. I worked as a Party worker during the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) election in the year 2015, but I did not contested for the Corporator post because I was just new in the politics and BJP party and there were seniors who were in fray. I and other workers from BJP campaigned for Sunil Patil and for the first time BJP got the first seat from Seawoods Darave and Sunil Patil elected as a Corporator.

When did you enter politics and what’s your aim if people elect you as a Corporator in future?

I entered politics in the year 2014 during the Loksabha Election when there was a Narendra Modi wave. My first choice was BJP Party because I like the ideology of the party. My role model in politics is Manda Mhatre. I was initially given the post of Nerul East Ward President than promoted to Vice President of Navi Mumbai BJP Yuva Morcha and finally I have been given the post of Mahamantri of BJP Yuva Morcha, Navi Mumbai. My main motto and aim if I get elected as a Corporator in future is to work for the benefits of the youth. I entered politics to fight for the youth rights. Nowadays even after higher education or graduation students are not getting the job and employments so I will try my level best to help them with job. Recently I helped 55 students to get the job and now there are more than 250 Bio-Data of the students from Seawoods Darave to whom I will be supporting and helping in getting the job. I am also planning to build a 50-60 bed hospital in Darave Village because as of now there is no hospital for the family of Darave Village. One of my plans is to build a relaxation home for the senior citizens of my area.

Let us know about the social work which you have done in your area, and also the initiatives which you are planning for future?

I initiated Aadhar Card Camp, Health Camp during my birthday in my area. Also I am the first to organize the health camp in my area after 15 years and it was also first of its kind where maximum numbers of people from my area took the benefit of it. The health check-up camp which I organized had all the modern technology machines for the body test and they also advised everyone who were attending the health camp about the importance of healthy living. I also keep on organizing haldi kunku, cricket matches, medical camp, dahi handi and also awards, Dance and Singing Competition in my area. I am planning an initiative where I will be helping the people in your area with the last rites items because sometime it becomes difficult for the people to get it because of financial crunches. The other plan is to come up with the ambulance facilities for the benefits of the people residing in Seawoods Darave.

We have heard that you give opportunities to the poor people to hoist flag in your area instead of getting it hoisted by any leader?

Yes, it is true. Poor people should also get an opportunity to hoist the flag. Last Independence Day and this year Republic day I gave the opportunity to the NMMC sweepers to hoist the Indian flag.

Is it true that you got offer from other parties to join them?

It is true, I am getting a call and offer to join Shiv-Sena, NCP, MNS but I am loyal to BJP party.

Let us known about your favourite food joint in Seawoods Darave?

I prefer going to the food joint of a Maga Prajapati who is very famous in our area for his Bhajiya. I have my morning breakfast of Bhajia at his stall.

Tell us about your meeting with Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis?

I am very excited to meet the Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis at Varsha Bungalow because I will be meeting him for the first time at his official residence. I am lucky that I got an appointment and opportunity to meet him to discuss about the future of politics and how youth can devote their time in politics.

During the general body meeting the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) commissioner Dr. Ramaswamy N. walked out of the house when the Leader of the House Ravindra Ithape used abusive language and said that the NMMC administration is paralysed and they don’t do any constructive work, they only have the habit to get a pat on their back.

If Ravindra Ithape genuinely felt that the municipal commissioner was wrong then he could have explained in civilized language the wrong that the commissioner had done and how it should be rectified. That would be civilized and parliamentary behavior and everyone would have appreciated it. There was absolutely no need to use abusive language. The fact that municipal commissioner did not abuse back but quietly left the general body meeting like a gentleman is something that should be appreciated.

In any sphere of life, language is important. A person who speaks in abusive language is condemned even if he is speaking the truth, while the man who speaks like a gentleman is adored even if he is speaking a lie.

In every municipal corporation, we find such clashes between political group and municipal administration. When the city residents make a noise about certain issue, the political group will not hesitate to blame the administration and the administration in turn will try to convince the media and public that they don’t receive enough cooperation from the political group.

Ravindra Ithape said that Ramaswami N was getting the pat on his back for the work that somebody else was doing. According to him a road besides the nallah was constructed by CIDCO and Ramaswami N was trying to steal the credit from the government agency. Even if this allegation by Ravindra Ithape is true, it is not so big an issue that should have provoked Ithape to use abusive language. He should have been aware of the sanctity of the place where he was speaking. He should have been aware of the fact that he is a public representative. By using abusive language, he has failed to observe the decorum which one needs to observe while speaking in an important meeting like General Body Meeting inside a sacred place like Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation. This is not a good example he is setting to the people whom he is representing or the younger generation who look at him as their idol.
