Dev Patel celebrates India from his Los Angeles front yard
This image released by National Geographic shows circular Phumdis floating atop Laktak Lake, the largest freshwater lake in northeast India, from the two-part special "India From Above," narrated by actor Dev Patel. Second was the offer to celebrate Indias culture and civilizations by narrating a National Geographic special, India From Above, which airs Sept. 30. It was incredible to be able to make some art in a way, to voice this beautiful thing, linked up to India, said Patel. Patel frequently films in India, but high above the crowd is not a perspective hes used to. How people find a way in India, no matter how hard the condition is, he said.
