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.
