The Death of the Postcard

Namaste to you all, I'd like to share with you all, what I believe is one of the most important universal laws. 'Support to our fellow brothers and sisters' this law I believe is one of the main reasons that we are on this earth, supporting and helping our fellowman in anyway we can.

If this law alone was followed by most of humanity, this world would be a much more peaceful, joyful and loving place. If we share what we have with others, if we can help in anyway possible, our own prosperity increases. Now we need to remember here, that the primary goal is to help each other first, not the reward first. If your looking for reward and acknowledgement first, then you've missed the point and the whole process will backfire.

Now to the story, I met a wonderful couple Adrian and Zoe in India, last year. The first thing I noticed about these two, was their kindness and their warm friendliness, to everyone that crossed their paths. I was very fortunate and blessed to spend some fantastic times with both of them.

At the time Ade was working on a documentary called "The Death of the Postcard" well its finished now. I was privileged to be sent the documentary a few weeks ago. I realised as he was making the film, the strong dedication he had in making this documentary, something else was very prevalent to me and what I think is even more important then just dedication and that was his passion and love for what he was doing.

So here is my little help, firstly for a friend, a brother and for what I think is a wonderful documentary. If you've ever travelled to India or South America backpacking, then I know you'll relate and enjoy this film.

'Experimental Travel Documentary around India and South America (50 mins). Director Adrian Barber collected thousands of e-mails, photos and video clips from travelers to create a shared view and narrative of contemporary travel and travel correspondence. Experience the highs and lows of travel, the bustle of the carnival, the silence of the salt flats, trek high into the Himalayas to the source of the Ganges, or walk the ghats in the ancient city of Varanasi in this beautiful and poetic film, described simply as "the life of a traveler'.
