My story is no different. I moved to Delhi in the year 2010 in search of a job but then didnt like the city, so I moved to Bangalore. In Bangalore, I have learnt a lot after having worked in multiple restaurants and cafes.
One day, I will open my own restaurant where I will serve good food. I will make my friends and family back home proud of me.

Shreelancer is a contemporary take on the life of a Freelancer in todays India.
Shreelancer is also the official entry for New York Indian film festival 2017.
About the Director-
Sandeep is the founder of The Great Indian Travelling Cinema - where he travels with a Projector and screens his films in various alternative spaces. Makersloft is proud to be one of the venues across the world!
His goal is to do 100 such travelling cinema screenings in alternative spaces, before going for a limited theatrical release as well as an Online release.
About the film-
SHREE, a Bangalore based mid 20's freelance copywriter is battling with nagging self doubts about his artistic abilities. He does ads for small time ad agencies, but is quite frustrated that the world doesn't seem to understand or respect Freelancers. Unable to concentrate at home, he visits various Cafes to find his peace and works from there.
Addicted to his cellphone and the social media, Shree's worldview is shaped by what he reads online, not having traveled much in the
"real" world. As fate would have it, Shree gets an invitation to attend an all-expenses paid trip to a College Friend's wedding. And life as he knows it will never be the same again.
Free Entry (Pay as you like if you like the film, after the film, as requested by Sandeep Mohan)
I am a firm believer of this mantra and it has helped me grow as a person and more so as an entrepreneur. There was a time when I was living in the US with a cosy and comfortable job. But then deep down, I had a strong desire build something of my own. It wasnt easy taking this call of shifting to India (out of my American comfort zone) and altogether start a new life. But then I took that plunge and worked hard to make that decision right. I am proud of what I did and looking back at it, I guess that plunge has shaped me as a person.
So my advice to all the youngsters is dont think too much, go and take that decision!!

Dialogues Cafe invites you to a clutter breaking workshop "Dialogues with Oneself" where an internationally experienced instructor and coach will guide you to maximise your emotional well-being and success. This mindfulness workshop is free from any religious beliefs, traditions or affiliations to any teacher. This workshop is an integration of practices that are backed by scientific research or have direct practical and psychological benefits to individuals.
What is Mindfulness?
To be consistently happy, we need to keep improving within. No other means of happiness is self-sustaining as is the process of breaking free from the habitual patterns of thoughts and actions that run our lives. Whether it is finding freedom from our destructive mental patterns, or alleviating stress, or discovering ones full potential, mindfulness is the skill that has surfaced in recent times as the answer for our highly demanding culture.
The effectiveness of Mindfulness is that it is a practice that anyone can learn, apply and over time, adapt to their specific conditions and needs. Free from any religious affiliation or from any spiritual energy type of practices, it is the safest and most effective skill that one can train in to reap physical, psychological and emotional well-being. There are various forms of mindfulness practices and honing ones practice takes patience and in most cases requires proper guidance. Nevertheless as endorsed by neuroscience studies (https://cgmayya.com/science-behind-mindfulness/) , the results from regular practice are definite and changes can be seen within the brain of every kind of practitioner just within six-eight weeks (numerous research studies results can be found online).

Dialogues Cafe in association with The Open Film School presents "Documentary Storytelling Workshop" a rare of its kind where you learn the art of influencing the world by sharing real stories through documentary feature films.

Why make a documentary
Finding a compelling story
how to put it together
Tone and Treatment
Starting your documentary

Initially I relished my freedom and made friends with some amazing people. But then after few years in IT field, I realised that while I had my monetary freedom but I did not feel that I belonged there. I was aware that an IT job was just a mere means to step out of my home.
Now I have quit my IT job as well and will take on a job in a start-up which will utilise my creative, communications and behavioral skills.
10 years down the lane, I want to inspire people. When people read my story they should feel inspired to walk the right path. Thats all I want from my life....
