Documentary on my Grandfather: Surendrakumar Bhagat
For the People to People series I would like to make a compelling documentary on my Grandfather; Surendrakumar Bhagat.
My grandfather was born on the 25th March 1948 in the city Nadiad which is located in Kheda District, Gujarat, India. He began school up until the 8th Standard at Sonarola High School. However, due to his parents’ small, tailoring business they had to shift to another village. He passed his matriculation exam in 1964 and then joined Nadiad’s College for further study. Unfortunately, after a few months he had to leave college, as his family’s condition became extremely poor. Even though he wanted to study further, financial struggle erupted. His dreams were to become a Chartered Accountant.
He became a typist.
This is a documentary of how a simple person’s life began through such struggle and crisis. How he turned his life around in a difficult era. And how he had to take care of his siblings at such a young age.
His journey began with struggle. But ended with happiness. This is the story of a helpless, brave typist who became a hard working bank manager.
My Grandfather wisely said…
“When a human is born on Earth, God always sends them with a purpose…”
…And this documentary aims to prove that.
