Traces: Stories

Traces: Stories

"Traces: stories' travels some part of the 'Konkan' region( like Chaul, Revdanda, Alibag, Nandgaon,Ashtami etc) of Maharashtra. Where the traces from distant past scattered all around. But instead of factual records, it tried to travel through the local legends, stories, personal memories of the local people. Where myth or story isn't in conflict with history but a complementary component, an extension. Recent past, Ancient history, Documented record, rumors, local stories, dreams all gets intertwined in this journey. We traverse the memory of arrival of a large blue whale at the adjacent seashore, the oral myth of 'Bene Israel' community about their arrival in India as well as other remains of the history like the very first Portuguese fort, an abundant royal bath of the Nizam etc. It's a dialogue between myth and history, facts and fiction. It deals with the memory of the people who lives there and the way they want to remember, the way they are rewriting.
