The Death Project
Death is a topic which sooner or later everybody reflects upon but is a topic that rarely gets talked about as much as other things that matter to humans. Pandemic made me think of death in a new light. This project is an attempt to open up dense topics such as death and make it easy for discussions.

My Research Journey
This research started on with a personal enquiry to make sense of death, loss and grief. Driven by intuition, following the breadcrumbs I found my way, insights emerged and helped me make sense of the invisible ties of death with culture, religion, mythology, philosophy, human emotions, laws, ethics and rights of a human. 
World that I am imagining 
Empathy: Imagining creates understanding, in a particular, interactions in which we’re trying to figure out the thoughts and feelings of others. Scientists call this capacity of the brain to construct a map of other people’s intentions ‘theory of mind.’ Narratives offer a unique opportunity to engage this capacity, as we identify with characters’ longings and frustrations, guess at their hidden motives and track their encounters with friends and enemies, neighbors and lovers.”
Artifact 1: Movie
Before I start the story, I would like to say that this project is entirely my understanding and interpretation of the concepts from mythology.
This Project is about communicating my interpretation about some of the concepts I came up with during research.
The Entire purpose of the project is to evoke a thought in the viewers mind about topics related to death, afterlife, technology, culture by no means this is an attempt to mock or undermine any Indian values, culture and gods, whatsoever.
