Bhaktivaibhava Swami to Debut "Lost Village" This Sunday!

3:33:00 PM By Vijay Teli , , , No comments

H.H. Bhaktivaibhava Swami and the producers of the documentary Mother Ganga have launched another documentary project, Lost Village, inspired by the story of H.H.Lokanath Swami. This Sunday, H.H. Bhaktivaibhava Swami will be visiting The Hare Krishna Centre to debut this new production.

For the first time in human history, a smaller proportion of the global population now lives in rural areas, states the United Nations statistics from June 2006. The twentieth century witnessed the rapid urbanization of the world’s population. As a result villages have been eclipsed in importance, as units of human society, settlement and traditions. This issue is being dealt with by the documentary Lost Village. Lost Village aims to explore that simple way of life, which is crucial to the solution of ecological problems and social dilemmas.

Lost Village is not the story of one village or one villager, but a story of 500 thousand villages in India and millions throughout the world endangered to vanish from the face of the Earth.
