Rosario Concha & Alan Meller were the first ever Chileans to study at Indian Universities at post-graduate level; Rosario recently completed her Masters in Sociology at Jawarhalal Nehru University, Delhi, while Alan is still working on a Ph D at Delhi University, comparing modern Indian & Spanish Literature.

They are not your ordinary University students! It took them years, applying from Santiago, to be accepted at these prestigious Indian Universities.

I was fortunate to meet Alan & Rosario in Vashisht Village, a place they visit regularly, taking the long winding road up into the Himalayas from Delhi.

Alan Meller wrote: “Maybe I would include two references about this video. One is that we worked (production, camera, sound and editing) with the Sri Aurobindo Centre for Arts and Communication (New Delhi) and the other, that the two poems written in Hindi (the one in the temple and the one given in paper in Jama Masjid) were translated by two teachers from Delhi University”.
