I hope India and Bangladesh will have a seamless border in future

first_imgOur film Shankhachil is a story of a family who lost their nation and motherland due to India and Bangladesh partition. The word Shankhachil means boundless, who has no boundaries, no limits. Without the awareness of the past, one cannot move ahead in future. Present is basically a moment in past and future. Past is witness to us. If we want to work on the present, we need to have ideology about our past.Our political scenario; our condition during the time of partition is definitely what students are probing about. But what I see, in future it will be a seamless border. Our colloquial history is same, the culture is same, and the language we speak is same, we would definitely witness the two countries as one, may be today or some other day. Shankhachil is an initiative. It is a film, a story, a history, and some suggestions for the youths. The youth will bring us together and we’ll find no division or boundaries. We have made the film in perspective of a river which has divided the two Bengals, but not the humans who have divided it.This film belongs very much to the present generation and there is a deep emotional attachment built in the film, in the context of partition.last_img read more
