On Camera Off Camera Pages from the Past

Author Name: Bhawana Somaaya | Format: Paperback | Genre : Music & Entertainment | Other Details

On Camera Off Camera—Pages from the Past captures the euphoria and the angst of those behind the scenes and those in front of the camera, their craft, their processes of creativity and their personal highs and lows. The life of a scribe is a never-ending journey of insights, her mind is forever racing from the back-lanes of the past into the by-lanes of the present, observing, joining the dots. Sometimes, the puzzle pieces fall into place; sometimes, the intrigue persists but the process of unravelling is fascinating.
