Sahyadris

Mountains of the Monsoon

This is an endeavor to bring Sandesh Kadur's acclaimed work "Sahyadris: Mountains of the Monsoon", to the iPad in an all new format. The fluidity of the iPad as a platform for story-telling is fully utilized to present Sahyadris as a confluence of stunning images, brilliant videography and insightful narrative.

You will take a picturesque journey through the vast natural landscapes and habitats of immense beauty and witness the diversity of the people who live here. Exploring farther, you will enter the world of plants and animals that make up this rich landscape. Finally, you will encounter the threats to the biological and cultural endowment of the Western Ghats.

Through all this you will see that no matter how great the pressures on the land, it is possible for wildlife to flourish alongside people and for ever-inventive humanity to find solutions to the current predicament of these mountains. We can - and we must - find ways to save our vanishing heritage, not only for the benefit of current and future generations of humans, but also for all life on earth.

These are some of the recognitions for the documentary that the app is based on:
