"We have to create culture, don't watch TV, don't read magazines, don't even listen to NPR. Create your own roadshow. The nexus of space and time where you are now is the most immediate sector of your universe, and if you're worrying about Michael Jackson or Bill Clinton or somebody else, then you are disempowered, you're giving it all away to icons, icons which are maintained by an electronic media so that you want to dress like X or have lips like Y. This is shit-brained, this kind of thinking. That is all cultural diversion, and what is real is you and your friends and your associations, your highs, your orgasms, your hopes, your plans, your fears. And we are told 'no', we're unimportant, we're peripheral. 'Get a degree, get a job, get a this, get a that.' And then you're a player, you don't want to even play in that game. You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that's being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world."

This is my attempt to get into the minds of 20 something year olds who have build a parallel existence being amidst the practical mainframe of our society.India has had a massive change in past 10 years and there is new problem of identity and identifying oneself in the modern indian urban society. These young revolutionaries who don't want to confirm to the set pattern created by our forefathers have build their associations based on individual ideas,dreams & aspirations. Each one of them is uniquely talented yet unemployed and holed up in a space filled with marijuana smoke. The smoke helps them curb their appetite and helps them focus on their dreams. To an outsider,it might seem like a scene from Danny Boyle's TRAINSPOTTING but as i see it, this is the birth of collective consciousness which is spreading like wildfire in urban pockets of India.
