This page will serve as the index for the movies I’ve posted and continue to post to this blog. There’s no perfect or elegant way to do this, so I’ll be setting up as follows, as the best compromise procedure:
1. I’ll put the movies in tables of 100. That will save space.Instead of doing an index post, as I’ve done with series, I’m adding a page, “Movies” (alongside the “Main”, “About”, “Contact Me”, and other tabbed pages) which will serve as the index.
2. Alphabetizing would be too complicated, and would have to be redone after every new movie posted, so I’ll just do it chronologically–the first movie in the list will be the first posted, etc.
3. After each link, I’ll put one or two tags to give an idea of the type of movie.
4. As the number increases, I’ll put in more tables.
5. Occasionally a movie I post will disappear, since the YouTube account it’s associated with is closed, or the movie is taken down by the poster, etc. When I notice this, I usually try to fix it by finding a link elsewhere. For items that have been up for awhile I may not be aware of what’s happened. Thus, if you go to see something and it’s gone, contact me and I’ll see what I can do, within the constraints of my schedule and of what I can find.
6. Shorts and certain odds and ends I may not put in the index–e.g. the first episode of the Mahabharata which I copied from the Caravanserai. Since that’s mostly to help people get to the appropriate YouTube channel, I’m not linking it here. By and large, though, most of what I have posted will be here. If a movie covered more than one post, I’ll give the links to all.
There may be better ways to do this. I’ll explore different avenues and may totally rework the index eventually. Meanwhile, I hope this helps you find movies you like here. Enjoy!
Update: The process of making this index has been interesting–I had unknowingly double-posted two or three movies. In those cases, I just removed the extra and linked to what was left. More surprising to me, there were a lot more videos which had been removed at YouTube than I’d expected. Rather than try to re-post all of them, I just removed them. Eventually, I may put some of them back up, but I don’t have the time to do so right now. I admit that coming to a blog and finding things gone that one likes is frustrating; but given my limited resources of time and effort, and the intrinsically ephemeral nature of cyberspace, anyway, when I find a video gone in the future, I’ll probably just delete the post. If the video was something I really liked, I may try to find a replacement, but I’m not going to put myself out too much. If you see that a movie you particularly liked (or wanted to view later) has vanished, contact me or post a comment, and I’ll see about re-posting it if I can. Meanwhile, enjoy what’s here!
