I have done my MA from Kumaon University and I have also played cricket at the university level. From year 86 to 92 I stayed in Pithoragarh and did my first job as a reporter for Hindi daily “Aaj” from here, as also was a freelancer for Dainik Jagran and PTI.I also did Trekking, Skiing, Hang Gliding and mount training there. I have written the protagonist’s character Harry keeping in view Pithoragarh’s Lalit Bisht, the person with whom the incident happened. I had interviewed Lalit when I was a reporter and when I was talking to him it had struck me then that if and when I can, I will forward this story to the audience through film medium. And now when I got this chance I went ahead to make the film “2 nights in soul valley”, the film which I have dedicated to my beloved city Pithoragarh.
