Are mountains living beings?

by Dilip Jain

A human being is designed to automatically develop wisdom based on a combination of his personal experiences, exposures and education. However, in today’s modern world there is such heavy influence of capitalist/ consumerist narrative that often development of wisdom is not a personal journey but driven by someone else’s agenda. In this movie, “Are mountains living beings?”, we have shown how the lure of mining resources to feed ever increasing short term growth & development narrative have resulted in long term loss of species & societies. All indigenous cultures worldwide once worshipped mountains as living beings but now most believe that they are non-living entities, thereby enabling large scale extraction & exploitation.
