Yoddha (The Warrior) is a Marathi poem written by my friend Ravi. When I heard the poem first, it formed vivid images in my mind. I realised that this poem had an awesome visual potential.
You can read the poem below in all its graphic glory. It’s been translated into English in the comic below.
It’s been more than three months since I completed the PADI Open Water Certification course in scube diving in Lakshadweep.
A couple of days ago, I completed making a film on my underwater experience. I had carried an adventure cam with me (Oregon Scientific model # ATK2000). The cam captures bit low res video, but this is one tough guy!
The official specs for the camera said that the camera is ‘water resistant up to 5 meters depth’. But I took a chance with it, and it actually worked perfect for a depth more more than 16 meters! I love this gadget.
So here’s the footage of my underwater dive in the pristine Lakshadweep lagoon. The actual footage was more than 3 hours, which I have edited down to less than 12 minutes of (interesting) video.
