Every Indian Will Love This American Traveller's Response To "How is India?"

Tripoto

Travellers are often hounded by friends and family for their travel stories on getting back from their journeys. Neil Howland was asked a similar question when he went back home. But unlike us, who usually mumble a generic reply, Neil found the creative prowess to summarise the "feeling of India" in a single video.

Shot, directed and edited by Neil Howland himself, the captivating video runs alongside the spiritual commentary of OSHO Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh. As the narration talks about "life slipping through our hands like water", the video plays scenes from the lives of locals in India.

Neil made the video in response to "a hard question, How was India?". He describes the reason and inspiration behind creating the video in his own words,

"In a land of sensory overload I’ve seen, heard, touched, tasted, and smelled more than I ever thought possible. Honestly, words fail me. So, this is my attempt to answer that question, with footage that I captured while on an epic tour of India last month. I hope that you enjoy!"

Check out the video,

Though it would be slightly unfair to say that the video, aptly titled 'India', captures the essence of the entire country since he only visited Delhi and parts of Rajasthan, but the creative effort followed by a beautiful piece of art is truly commendable.

Good efforts in making video and amazing background voice, but i don't agree with the Title, what he covered was only small region of India, mostly looks like Rajashtan...!!

The video doesn't do justice to the title at all. But it is captured beautifully and the commentary is simply great!
