As an avid Orkut user I bump into many interesting people. In the last one year I bumped into the profiles of two really talented Assamese youths. Knowing about them, seeing their works still gives us a hope that all is not lost yet!
The first person is Angshuman Borkakoty. His profile interested me as one of his favorite movies is Wong Kar Wai's 2046. I was thrilled to know that people in Assam have watched that movie. A series of communications followed in the following months. I came to know that Angshuman aspires to be a film maker. (avid bollywood goes can excuse us here). He had actually started making short movies which are available at You tube. I was thrilled to see his short movies, I was also thrilled to see his handling of sensitive subject matters (which again is very subjective).
Angshuman's short movies can be watched at:

The other person I met at Orkut is a music maker. Dhritiman Deori is a singer,composer,programmer,audio engineer. He is trained in Indian classical vocals at the age of 10 and then received formal training in Keyboards and the guitar. I was stunned when I heard his Powa-Nopowa...a great voice, great mixing...and he lets me know that Powa Nopowa was recorded in his bedroom!!
You can visit Dhriti's myspace profile and listen to his songs:
Usually I dont care about comments on my posts, but this time I would really like to hear from you all-if you liked these two young people from Assam weaving dreams in their own ways!!
