“OSHO’S SEXUAL ENLIGHTENMENT PHILOSOPHY" MADE THE BASE OF MY MOVIE"

Sunday - April 23, 2017 7:05 pm , Category : WTN SPECIAL

Most of us, have talked with our toys in our childhood. Many people talk with their plants, some talk with the things of their loved ones who have parted forever. It’s really strange, that there has evolved such a drought of bonding, togetherness or sympathising amongst we humans, that many of us find solace in conversing with non-living things. This emotional bankruptcy has been effectively reflected in an upcoming movie – My Virgin Diary – a film by a passionate actor-director Nalin Singh. My Virgin Diary will be released in a couple of months, this year on major national and international digital platforms. The movie revolves around a story of four roommates, one of whom, under a strong surreal influence, used to talk with non-living objects.
Talking about the movie and its protagonist, Nalin Singh said, “Since long, I had a longing to make a movie portraying my hostel life. I’m Delhi’s Hindu College pass-out. We were four roommates, Osho’s philosophy had a great impact on our lives, you might find a lot of Osho in my movie, and I feel that sex is the most misunderstood term amongst today’s generation."
 
Osho’s philosophy of love, sex and spirituality and its influence on the mind of a student, made the base of Nalin’s movie. Swami Atul Anand, Managing Trustee of Osho World Foundation says, “Unlike the other advocates of religions, Osho for the first time gave an acceptance of sex as for other things of life and to make it a means to rise above it. He gave the path of awareness and loves to transcend sex through sex." He also adds “Talking to inanimate objects can be due to suppressed emotions and not having an outlet to share and let go. Sharing with the non-responding beings that we can call inanimate, feels easier for such people because there will not be any response that they will have to deal with or respond to.” 

While Nalin Singh of ‘My Virgin Diary’ says, “The protagonist in my movie locks himself inside a room, he talks with the glasses, guitar, books, lights and shadows, he feels, they respond to him, he marries a female mannequin and also celebrates honeymoon with her, they all help him create his music”.
 
According to experts, anthropomorphism or attributing human characteristics to non-living objects is in our religion but when it becomes an obsession in your everyday life, you seriously need help. Hope, the films like My Virgin Diary would serve a better purpose of connecting a beating heart to another.

 There is a whispering buzz amongst the personal screen viewers, i.e. an audience of digital entertainment, the buzz, not yet loud, though has an audible reference of a multitalented man and his multifaceted project. The man is “actor-director Nalin Singh” and the project is his upcoming movie – My Virgin Diary.

Q: What was the inspiration for My Virgin Diary – how did the story come about?  

Since long, I had a longing to make a movie portraying my hostel life. I’m Delhi’s Hindu College alumni and have also lived in the flats of the campus area. We were four roommates. One of our roommates - Arun Jaiswal - was under influence of a lot of philosophers, including Osho.  He later committed suicide. He is the protagonist of my film.  

Q: What was the scripting process like and how did you decide upon this?

I am still obsessed by Arun Jaiswal’s life and death, he was a very humorous person too, While writing and directing the movie, I lived two lives. One – my routine life as Nalin Singh and another of Arun, his mental agony, his strong influences of a surreal philosophy, closely resembling that of Rajnish Osho’s sexual ideologies.  

Arun used to talk with non-living things. To get into his psychological undertones, I deeply studied this philosophy and engrossed into it to the extent that I used to get myself locked in a room, disconnected from the outside world and endeavoured to converse with the nonliving objects, which, I felt, were reciprocating to my connotations. 

Q: The subject matter of My Virgin Diary is gleefully dark. How did you manage to balance both – gloom and humour?

My Virgin Diary is like a painting, it is an outright mix of moods that goes from humorous to hallucinating. Hostel life is full of humour but there are dark outlines also. A major part of this movie deals with Arun’s mysterious life.  It’s a subtle interplay of light and shadow, sex and sense, music and drama that ultimately play with our vision and provide a peek into man’s subconscious.  

Q: My Virgin Diary is by no means a traditional film, yet it seems to have connected with every young collegiate.  What do you think it is about it that connects?

The truth, honesty and lucidity with which this subject has been handled make this film ‘an everyone’s story’. I’ve tried to capture the fun, frolic, thrill and mystery of hostel life as it comes naturally. This is the thing that would connect to the past or present of every individual.

....My Virgin Diary will be released in a couple of months, on major national and international digital platforms. The movie revolves around a story of four roommates, one of whom was under a strong surreal influence and committed suicide. We tried to peep in the director’s mind. Here are excerpts of the interview.
