In our lives, we undertake several journeys. But some journeys are truly Incredible.What captivates us in travel is the sense of travel; the sense of motion and dynamism which ensures our surroundings change with each second passing by. Sadly, most of the documentaries and travel shows we view on television project a journey as their crew experienced it; the viewer remains a remote, dull, passive observer.

Come, BHARAT DARSHAN: Exploring the Unexplored, and the scenario changes completely. In this new journey, Sukhnidhey Films (, and on facebook: takes our audience on an unforgettable journey of a lifetime. A journey where you are not allowed to remain dull and passive on your couch, but taken along to explore the least explored and unknown places in Incredible India first hand; in a truly subjective manner, instead of viewership from a sidelines viewpoint.


From the inhospitable terrain of the Kunzum Pass at 14,500 feet in the Mighty Himalayas in the north to the clear waters on the shores of Kanyakumari in the south, BHARAT DARSHAN takes you to explore a paradise, the journey spanning the length and the breadth of the country. And mind you, don't expect a calm, peaceful, relaxed, passive viewing, but instead immense adrenaline rush and adventure!

BHARAT DARSHAN, apart from taking you along to such amazing journeys, also has another major goal. And that is, to help preserve and conserve the wonderful culture and history of this amazing country. So, along the journey, we examine the historical perspectives, the rich cultures and traditions, as well as the architectural styles, and separating myths from reality when we explore some places, which their millions of years old cultures, have explicit mentions in ancient texts and scriptures like the Ramayana and the Puranas.


We wish to force you to seriously question the "mythology" tag on these great epics, which are swished away being untrue myths. Just go ahead, have a look at one of the episodes, and you yourself would be amazed at what the unexplored places have in store to crush this tag forever.

Dear visitors, recently wrote a new insightful and thought provoking article,
 "THE PRICE OF OUR INDEPENDENCE", which takes us on a journey 200 years back. A must read for all!


15 August, 2012    HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!

Today is the day, 65 years in the past which changed the very way Indians thought about their society. For nearly 200 years, we could not breathe free. We were under foreign rule for those two centuries, and India slowly and painfully lost every single bit of its iconic description, "Sone Ki Chidiya" (The Golden Bird), a title conferred to our motherland for Her unparalled prosperity and wealth. Not material wealth per se, though India undoubtedly was the wealthiest nation in the world at that time, yet wealth encompassing all forms, spiritual, scientific, artistic, societal, and what not. We were a living example of our rich living history. READ MORE

It's time to rejoice!

Yes, It's time to rejoice!

Just a few hours ago, Forest officials and authorities have officially confirmed the presence of atleast two newly born cubs in the Sariska Tiger Reserve in Rajasthan. This is a great step forward in this direction of tiger conservation, and will go a long way in boosting more such relocation efforts. The reserve lost all its tigers to rampant poaching, and then tigers were relocated into the forest from Ranthambore.
Sukhnidhey Films produced, "Sariska: A Reserve Reborn", the short documentary film filmed nearly an year ago, which described the ecosystem changes in the Sariska reserve when the predator population collapsed, and how the forest began reviving when tigers were reintroduced. It was well appreciated and received in the Cms Vatavaran Environment and Wildlife Film Festival, and showed how the relocated tigers were adapting themselves to the reserve.

Specifically, the movie filmed the behavior of relocated tigers for the very first time on camera, showing an adult male tiger scent marking his territory, patrolling the same and exhibiting true territorial behavior, as an adult male usually does. 

Today, our film's research into and depiction of the success of relocation has been proved-- SARISKA HAS NEW CUBS!

We all watch films, or movies, be they feature films or documentaries or shorts. Why do films attract and engage us so much more than any other medium? That's because the addition of movement to sound creates this audio visual medium, with scope of creativity exhibition at a lot more scale than is possible in still photography.

It is this wonderful and powerful combination of motion and sound which can work wonders, and has proved a great medium for raising mass awareness on issues of international concern such as environment and wildlife conservation, preservation of the cultures and traditions of native peoples of the world, social causes, etc. Besides, films can be dramatic subjective experiences which transport the viewer to a completely different world, or more commonly to view the same world around them from a fresh, completely new perspective.

So, here we came up with SUKHNIDHEY FILMS, which aims at producing content rich, high quality documentary films to subjectively involve our viewers in each of our films, rather than being mere objective observers, in each and every film we work on. Our travel shows for example, would take you on a ride with us, and see a place with your very eyes, as you see it; not as we saw it.

So, here I give you, dear readers, my new website:

Where you would find our film galleries, featuring our award winning documentaries that were very well appreciated and received in several film festivals such as the CMS Vatavaran Environment & Wildlife film festival, CineYouth national film festival, etc, where one of our films won a national award.

Sariska: A Reserve Reborn is a magical journey to the tiger land

The Sariska National Park in Rajsthan, India, was once famous worldwide for its large population of tigers. However, rampant poaching wiped away every single tiger from this reserve, critically disturbing the jungle ecosystem, and in addition, giving a heavy blow to tourism.

In 2008, Sariska saw the implementaion of the first tiger relocation project in the world, whereby tigers were relocated from Ranthambore national park to Sariska. With the relocation came another hope to people all over the world, that the beautiful jungle might revive. However, in 2010 came another blow when one of the relocated males was poisoned to death. Now, there are 4 tigers, 1 male and 3 females in the reserve.

Sariska: A Reserve Reborn captures the rich biodiversity of the Sariska National Park, portraying the rich bird life, the Golden Jackals, the wild Hare, the Chitals (spotted deer), and most importantly- the King of them all- the Royal Bengal Tiger. The only male tiger in the forest, ST-4 gives the viewers an  enchanting  sight into its everyday life. Its territorial behavior, wherein it is seen scent marking and spraying urine in its territory, is seen. Some extremely rarely seen shots of the tiger blowing away water drops from its face and resting in a mud puddle under the hot summer sun are revealed. The film offers the viewers an insight into the behavior and life of relocated tigers.

Furthermore, the splendid courtship feather display dance of the Indian male Peafowls, flaunting their iridescent feathers is seen, as is the action packed dramatic fight of two young male deer, smashing their antlers against those of their opponent.

Sariska: A Reserve Reborn is the incredible journey to the land of Sariska, rich in its flora and fauna, which also aims at revivng tourism in the reserve, which suffered a heavy blow when all the tigers were exterminated.
This is the story of a reserve, which is magically reborn, when her King returns.
