Imaginary Containers

Allow me to use imaginary containers like—purpose, goal, process, journey, reasons, and so on—to describe this 20 year long experiment, titled Hindu American Oscar Storytelling Experiment.

It helps me to structure my thoughts in such containers.


Purpose of this experiment is to develop a new scientific method and artistic discipline of screenwriting, by marrying X rooted in Hindu Dharma, with Y rooted in American Exceptionalism.


Goal of this experiment is to help 8 artists and entrepreneurs earn an Oscar nomination each, and do so before the end of year 2041.

Single minded focus


The global pandemic of year 2020-2021 led me to hermit for 16 long months, which became a time of busy inner dialogue, of confronting many personal restlessnesses, and a time of genuinely deep reflection.

There was a lot of churning between chaos and calm. And it felt like a churning of all things inside and around me.

This unique hermitting opportunity forced me think what I wanted to do next? why? and how?

Finding those answers was proving very difficult.

But it became easy when I sought counsel from friends, family, therapists, and an accidental mentor.

So . . .

What do I want to do next?

I want to make honest-unique Oscar worthy movies.


To channel my dyslexia, ADHD, storytelling compulsion, love for learning new things, and curiosity about the human condition, all into collaborative art and entrepreneurship.


By making this 20 year long experiment my artistic discipline.
