For those interested in understanding the pulse of India, this Films Division documentary short is essential viewing. A mashup of interviews of 20 year-old Indians in the year 1967, it explores the thoughts and aspirations of India’s baby boomer generation. With over 100,000 views since it went up on YouTube, a follow up story on The Hindu was issued, where they tracked a few of these individuals down.

The camera-work seems to have a very first-person vibe to it – a good number of folks interviewed here say a lot of smart and frank things, others can’t tell you who the nation’s leaders are. We wonder what other gems are there in the Films Division archives and if they’ve been put up online. Ping us on any of our social networks if you have spotted gems like these.
