Watch my critically acclaimed feature-length documentary 'Gandhi's Song
"Mayank's documentary flows like a stream with an idyllic beauty. Foraying into a territory that is devoid of any populism and allows no scope for playing to the gallery, Mayank gives it the character, chastity and temperance it calls for. The result is over 70 minutes of spell-binding narrative characterized by an articulation you don't get to hear in these times of frivolous."
--Raju Korti, Veteran journalist and writer
"Chhaya's work exemplifies the virtues of objective journalism and scholarly research; given that the documentary's subject is not one that would easily draw the attention of viewers. "Gandhi's Song", however, manages to keep its viewers engrossed, enlightens them and yet leaves it to their good sense to perceive the lessons that find mention in the song -- propagated and popularised by Gandhi.”

Premiering a ghazal.
I am inordinately thrilled that my school friend Shekhar Phatak from C.N. High School, Ahmedabad, is the one to have superbly composed and sung my ghazal.
This ghazal तेरे ख़याल आये और बेइजाज़त आये, जैसे मयख़ाने में बेसबब इबादत आये was written in five minutes or so like I do many of my ghazals. That was a couple of months ago.
Thank you very much, Shekhar.
