" Hi! I am Sanjay Kamaal, and you are watching The Missing Ling : music and imagery presenting a few varied perspectives on masculinities.

The material has been culled from my ongoing body of research  called The SK Project.

I am a Journalist. Widely travelled across India and around the world.  I embarked upon the SK Project 23 years ago as a personal inquiry

into my world of men, machismo and masculinities. Who are men? What do men feel? What are our concerns? 

Initially I decided to contain my inquiry to only those who had the initials SK in their names.

Hence the SK Project!"                                                                                                                      S. Kamaal, Journalist
