“Nepal is a very beautiful country with mountains and greenery, but what really makes the country beautiful is the surrounding and the people. As a traveler, you would like to experience the country as if you are walking, standing and experiencing all the things. This motive lead me to make the video- Transcend to Nepal. With the sound and video, it transports the viewer to be amongst the people and see Nepal as if they were there. Nepal is not just mountains, there is more to it. “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or ever touched – they must be felt with the heart”.” – Debashish Pradhan
“Well, Aura of the valley is not just a video for me but my ultimate dream scripted into frames for which I had given a thought to my entire teenage days. Fascinated with the majestic beauty that laid upon the busy streets in Asan, those innocent faces that I stumbled upon, those dramatic lightings that fell upon heritages during evenings always made me crave a wish to create a graphic documentation for my country. There were times where I just wanted to go back home, get hold of my camera and just shoot the things I had laid my eyes on. So, in this video, I tried putting up all the things that I had missed in all those years. Yes, I am a teenager, I am constantly pulled by financial hardships, I didn’t have the awesome equipment. But I didn’t let all those get me, I used to wake up 7 in the morning, charge the camera and leave the house at 10. There were times I had to walk along the streets to get the bus, reach out to the places I had planned and start shooting. Those moments were all so precious as I was doing what I had wished for. Not being a resident of Kathmandu was a plus point for me as I wanted to explore all the places that lead me to the visions I was looking for. With wake up alarms in the morning and late night shoots for the video, I completed everything the video has got in 10 days, but the edit was a long work and fun. Anyways, Aura of the valley will always be a milestone for me. It helped me get out of my comfort zone, never complain, eat less, not care about my skin being roasted in heat and just shoot. All I had to do was just to press record and create something beautiful. For which, I present my more respected gratitude to my beloved country and I hope I can do something in the field of filmmaking for Nepal. “– Abin Bho
