Like shifting clouds and shifting colours of an evening sky, Purple Skies weaves together stories of pain, trauma, hope and happiness of lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LBT) persons to offer an evocative, endearing tapestry of contemporary Indian LBT lives - sometimes sad, sometimes anguished, sometimes dreamy and often humorous. It features stories of LBT persons victimized and subjugated by law, family and society; and hopeful stories of younger LBT persons who have overcome barriers to live openly with dignity.
The film assumes special significance in the context of recent recriminalization of homosexuality in India.
The film has already been screened at more than 25 international film festivals and has the distinction to be the first ever film on lesbian / bisexual theme to be telecast on Doordarshan's National Network.

"Stayed at the amazing Jungle Wood Resort in Coorg, literally in the middle of a Jungle. The house is a 200 year old house managed by a family who has been running this for years. The silence, peace and 'no phone service' makes you feel so connected to the nature. Highly recommended if you just wanna run away! Huge shoutout to @townista. This was my first #TownistaTrip. Brilliantly arranged and such a hassle free experience. Much recommended if you are planning your next trip."
