|Kalimpong, a trading crossings in northern India, has serious problems with water distribution.|
Water (Radhamohini Prasad, India, 2012; 12 min.) Kalimpong could be described as a great crossroads where trade with Tibet and Nepal flourished and it also functioned as the starting point of many an expedition to Central Asia. Baghdhara (spring/fountain), located in the heart of Kalimpong town, is one of the many motifs of water abundance in the hills. But behind these prosperous natural resources of water lies a serious condition of degrading human dignity alongside a failed administration. The film projects today’s Kalimpong through these collapsed water distribution systems.
