RESONANCE OF MOTHER’S MELODY
Kongthong, a remote Khasi village in Meghalaya of the Indian sub-continent is characterised by a unique age-old practice of communication through whistling. It is perhaps the only place in India where people communicate among themselves through whistling and using different tunes to call each other.
After having come to know this, a young researcher went to the place with a group to explore the things. She observed it and had interactions with the villagers, headman and others and finally came out with some interesting facts. The researcher could discover that every child has his/her own special tune given at the time of birth by the mother and at a later stage of growth, a shorter version of that tune is used for communication.
The documentary film starts with the journey of the researcher and goes on with the things of the place and finally ends with various findings of her research.
