My Dad Was Born Hundred Years Ago
When I realized that my father was born a hundred years ago my mind just went into a state of emptiness. All that I could think about was "What can I do to record for the generations to come who Ranga Sar was".
I wanted to find out what really made him tick. I wanted to know what people who knew him thought of him. What kind of language he used with true friends. Did he walk with his friends with hands on their shoulder? Did he use only good and decent words or did he use language like me.
Now why do I need to know all this to make a video to honor his memory. I feel that I know a father who was very loving, caring, sacrificing........ he was always aware when I was sad or disturbed........
