The Last NomadA novella by Heramb Sukhathankar


SynopsisEvery moment of Rahul Gite’s childhood has been etched with strange stories; untold stories from the dark and dreary lanes of thriving Shantinagar slum in Bombay. Written by nameless faces out of the thrust for survival these are stories of hate, love, greed and belief. But everyone hates them; they bring us face to face with life—off guard and will-less.
Then there is Ryan Davis enjoying the ancient stories of myths and legends from his parents, sitting in the drawing room of a well furnished apartment in Sagamihara, Japan – the land of hope. Life in Sagamihara has been nothing short of a fairy tale; streets bathing in the beautiful pink cherry blossoms, autumn leaves floating at the mystical Lake Sagami and gigantic kites magnificently soaring in skies during the Sagami Giant Kites Festival. Life has become a story soaked in fantasy leaving Ryan longing for more. One day by happenstance, Rahul and Ryan meet each other at the cross…

लेख: देवराईतील रायवळ आंबा

आज सिद्धार्त दादाची झाडांसंबंधीची फेसबुकवर पोस्ट पाहून काही महिन्यांपूर्वी घडलेल्या एका घटनेची आठवण झाली.डेक्कन कॉलेज, पुणे, येथे शिकताना भेटलेला एक मित्र म्हणजे अरुणाचल प्रदेशचा बानवांग लोसू. एके दिवशी तो मैदानात काहीतरी उपसताना दिसला. पाहिलं तर चक्क शंभरच्या वर रोपांचा ढीग! जमिनीत उगवलेलं तण म्हणून ती टाकून देण्यात येत होती पण बानवांगने ती दुसरीकडे नेऊन ठेवली. झाडांचे वेड असल्यामुळे मी ही या प्रकारात ओढला गेलो. मुळात हे करण्यामागे निदान माझा तरी कोणताच मोठा विचार नव्हता. त्या क्षणी आमचा हेतू केवळ ती रोपं जगवण्याचा होता. मुंबईसारख्या शहरात मोकळ्या जागा आणि खास करून वृक्ष लावण्यासाठी जागा यांची वानवा अनुभवल्यामुळे घरातील कुंडीपुरतेच माझे निसर्गप्रेम मर्यादित राहिले. एकदम इतकी रोपं लावण्याची संधी पाहून मी चक्क झपाटलो गेलो.साधारणपणे ती आंब्याची रोपं असल्याचे समजले पण नेमकी कोणती व्हरायटी हे समजत नव्हते. एकूण संख्या मोजल्यावर आमच्या लक्षात आले की ती चक्क २५० होती! पुढचा मागचा विचार न करताआम्ही त्यांची रोपं करण्याचे ठरवले. आमचा मित्र संजय हरगुडे याच्या मदतीमुळे २ दिवसात आम्ही सगळी रोपं तय…

Whispers: my first shortfilm

After days of procrastination, finally I made my first shortfilm. Completely shot at home and made in a single day, due to the lockdown restrictions, it was a fun experience. Hope you enjoy it.
Synopsis: In a city under complete lockdown due to a pandemic unfolding globally, a woman is busy working from home. Deserted streets and silent skies. But why is she hearing some strange whispers? She tries to chase them but its too before she realizes that a whisper can be more than just a sound.
Featuring Shamitha Vokkaliga

कविता: तू ठरवलस तर...

तू ठरवलस तर होऊ शकतोस बुद्ध, नाहीतर राहशील राजपुत्र गौतम बनून सोन्याच्या अदृश्य पिंजऱ्यात.
तू ठरवलस तर होऊ शकतो रात्रीचा दिवस, आणि थांबेल काळही त्याचा निर्लेप गाभा उघडून तुला पाहण्याकरिता.
तू ठरवलस तर होऊ शकतोस मुक्त प्रवाहाच्या लाटेतून, नाहीतर वहात जाशील निष्प्राण ओंडक्यांसारखा नशिबाला दोष देत.
तू ठरवलस तर अशक्य हा फक्त एक शब्द म्हणून उरेल, आणि प्रकाश शोधणाऱ्यांच्या हृदयात पणतीची ज्योत होऊन तेवत राहशील.
(बाबा आमटेंना समर्पित)

Poem: Life and death in five minutes

It was the year 2020, when we did this crazy thing, Gathering on rooftops, balconies, and all places we could. To play gongs, plates, whistles and clapped for everyone who helped us survive a deathwave.
This moment did what many could not. It brought us together, different people from distinct worlds, To experience the flip of a coin. One flip and our world will change. Before we assumed our differences again, we realized we are life.
