Under the Raintree is a quiet, cool pasture of creative pleasure. Under the nurturing canopy of the Raintree, interactions are a sparkling composite of artistic expression and flair.
It is a place for writers, poets, painters, playwrights, graphic designers, photographers, and other artists to share their ideas, styles and techniques through personal interactions. Meetings are in informal and intimate settings that nourish the flowering of talent with critical appraisal and bonhomie of kindred spirits.We have produced 'Little Light' an acclaimed short film with original music by Ramana Gogula and the voice of Arundhati Nag. We write scripts, shoot and edit short films and documentaries.
