This beautifully shot film captures the story of just one of these vanishing villages; standing as a poignant testament to those like Lokanath Swami, proud resident of the remote Indian village Arawade, who get left behind.

By giving them exciting creative challenges, the purpose of this project is to help children and their families cope with the emotional toll the social isolation, the anxiety and the uncertainties create. “Most children express their thought and feelings better through different forms of arts, than words. Art has a healing power,” the project coordinator says.
