Below is an excerpt from Laxcha talking about YATRI last year on lexlimbu.com:
In her own words:
It was a group of young people getting together doing what we all love to do.
Bryan & Calvin are photographers. None of us had shot a music video before. We are not part of any industry. We had no sponsors – no budget!
We made this simply because of passion and that’s why this video is such an amazing achievement for all of us.
Yatri has its own pragmatics because it is based on Manas’ true life story; however the making of ‘Yatri’ also has its own story – and that is ‘follow your dreams and destiny’. This is also the reason why we featured Battlenutz, Duke & Chronicz because they are all such inspiring passionate voices in our generation.
Laxcha was also the editor for ‘Lex in Nepal’ – she did an amazing job considering I basically sent a hard drive full of videos with no instructions. Congratulations’, being nominated – that’s a huge feat, I sincerely hope you stay on top of the game and continue delivering whilst improving yourself.
