Today I accidentally watched couple of short films in different channels more than once.

One of the channel was National Geographic and the film was in Kannada with subtitles. It had Prabhu Deva, Ramya, Anu Prabhakar, Jayanti, Saroja Devi and Sadhu Kokila. It was very fast paced with a neat direction/editing and a very good camera work. When I saw the end credits for Cinematography I was not surprised. It was Santosh Sivan. Later found out that he even directed this. It was called 'Prarambha'.

Another one was 'interesting' with some known faces from bollywood. It was called 'Migration' directed by from Mira Nair.

These are actually segments of a 4-segment movie 'AIDS JaaGo' by Mira Nair. Segments are directed by Mira Nair, Santosh Sivan, Farhan Akhtar and Vishal Bharadwaj respectively.

You can try catching them again:

If you are still wondering why I am writing all this, then know that Today is World AIDS Day. As part of that I have a message for you all.

If you are sexually over-active, its good to ensure the use of condoms. If you are not then its even better and you can become a Yogi.

Idea Naren.
