  1. For now, you should contact Mira Nair of Mirabai Films and send her your book about your experiences. She will likely option it and write and direct an independent film.

  2. Congratulations, Gautam. I have been reading your Troy Davis articles. You are a magnificent talent, blessed by the Most High. Please do not allow life to steal your artistic capabilities in the form of neglecting them. Please study film and produce and direct the Troy Davis Story, based on your memoir.

    I am very proud of you for fighting for Troy. Troy has already won the battle, though he was called home early. The purpose of life is to seek and find God/Love and recreate them in everything you do. I look forward to your efforts to beautify our world in the Lord’s Holy Name. Amen

    Everything happens for a reason. Some are sacrificial lambs for the Greater Good. Life is eternal, so it’s no big deal. If Troy had been guilty of killing the officer, we would likely have never heard about the singular energy that produced his unforgettable life. So it is what it is.
