Kaithi, Ek Itihaas by Shridhar Sudhir
The Film looks into the now-lost script Kaithi, widely used in Bihar and other parts of North India, and traces its gradual demise and present-extinction. It draws parallels between its history and contemporary Bihar, delving into important milestones of Indian history. It looks at the relationship of a people with their language, and a language with its script, and how one could look back at one’s own history and find patterns and instances that can provide valuable insights to positively impact our present.
