    Directors note :

    The best thing I could have done in my life is to sit crossed legged on the floor at equal height, or even lower than my life-altering bandwagon of children friends.

    I have been up-close for long, observing and absorbing their characteristics, natures and behaviour and so it was inevitable that I walk the path with them, for them. The first concern found its form in 'Taare Zameen Par' It is time now to open a new bubbling can of children's emotions and serve it to the nation…'Stanley Ka Dabba'

    This unique experience was created playfully over a year and a half on Saturdays as theatre and cinema holiday morning sessions of not more than 4 hours with 2 recesses built in… 'You bring one dabba and I'll give you one dabba' Taste of India!

    And more importantly, putting forth the rulebook of conduct while filming children – No auditions, no 12-hour shifts, no months-long schedules – only fun! And the pleasure of practicing the art called CINEMA.

    In this wonderful, effortless performance of the children, in which I was merely a blotting paper, I was supported without a shred of doubt by my new extended family – from the smallest elf aged 2 years to my school headmistress in her 80s! Ace artists and creators and educators and film giants… all participating with generosity… an unbelievable and unlikely 'Bollywood' story! The past one and a half year has been like a dream…

    "What would you think if I sang out of tune, would you stand up and walk out on me? Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song, and I'll try not to sing out of key… Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends, Mmm… gonna try with a little help from my friends…"
