Mohsen, a documentary filmmaker from Iran, landed in Delhi with high learning ambitions and thronged the Delhi University gates. With guidance from a few professors, he managed to choose the course of his interest - the Certificate Course in Tibetan Language and Literature, offered by the Department of Buddhist Studies, University of Delhi.
In his quest to study the influence of spirituality on nature, he came to India, the place synonymous with spirituality and a host to diverse ethnic and religious groups.
As far as Indian food is concerned, he finds it quite similar to the Iranian food, specially the meat preparations. He has visited some temples in Delhi and was amazed to see people worshipping a God with the head of an elephant (Lord Ganesha). He also plans to visit the Taj Mahal in Agra and Satya Sai Baba's ashram in Pune.When asked about his marital status, he blushed, revealing that he is still single and has no girlfriend either.
