Ayn Rand while commuting

I suppose we have all seen this while commuting- at least those who travel with the hoi polloi -someone reading a Rand book, often the Fountainhead:

Reading Ayn Rand

On a couple of occasions I have seen dullish looking housewife types in traditional sarees poring over the Fountainhead and wondered if they were 'getting it'. I'm glad if they 'got' even one percent. Who knows what personal awakening that bit might produce.

The Sixth Sense

This is the video that we created as our submission to the Ayn Rand Institute's Atlas Shrugged Video Contest.
Our movie was filmed and edited by Abhay Kumar -- a talented filmmaker.
The concept for the script was written and developed by Gazal Dhaliwal--a close friend, gifted script writer, and intellectual friend of Objectivism.
I provided the philosophical consultation, advise, and approach to creating a video that conveyed the right messages.
So here is our finished product. I am pleased with the outcome. If you enjoy the video as well, then please show us your support by VOTING for the video at the contest website. You can vote once per day from each computer. And you can vote all the way till the end of the contest on December 22.
