17-04-2017, Pune, India:
So here we are back again, after numerous phone calls, emails and WhatsApp messages, the team has finally got something to the table.
Tanya has come all the way from Mumbai to Pune for our team meetings to get things moving on the Geeli Mitti project. Catching up on coffees, reading and script editing sessions at a coffee shop, we meet up yet again, another day to add the final pieces to our work.
In order to escape the smouldering Pune heat; we headed to a coffee shop at Aundh. Sitting through the first hour without electricity, the team discussed and worked hard on adding in new ideas and suggestions for what to expect and work upon during our visit to Geeli Mitti. As soon as the electricity resumed, the pace and excitement picked up with a cup of coffee by our side.
Having worked for almost four hours straight, we head out to meet our Strategic Advisor, Sanjay Mukherjee to scrutinise and fill in the missing pieces to the puzzle.
After yet another cup of coffee and several hours of brainstorming on what, how, where and when, we are finally back on track.
All of us are excited and are looking forward to heading up north, to a whole new terrain and explore a different face of the Himalayas – the Kumaon region of Uttarakhand.
