About the DVD

The blue umbrella is a heart warming adaptation of the beloved novella of the same name by Ruskin bond. It is a film about desire about the zealous attempt to fulfill it and finally its conquest.

The story unfuris will the discovery of a vibrant blue umbrella by Biniya a ten year old girl from an idyllic mountain village in north India. She has never seen anything more striking and beautiful neither has Nandkishore Khatri a miserly old man who runs a small tea stall in the village.

One fine day the umbrella goes missing! The villagers are sympathetic to her misery but are convinced that Binlya’s carelessness has resulted in the loss. Alone and betrayed Biniya decides to take over.

What follows is a journey of Biniya and Nandkishore to a discovery which is bitter sweet and has wisdom far beyond the blue umbrella.

The blue umbrella being a metaphorical tale is yet so contemporary it questions the basic premise of mankind’s quest for superiority over others. It raises pertinent questions on the concept of material happiness and futility of the whole process.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
