Dear Sir: A Foldscope Fable

Hi, I am new to this platform. I am just getting started and very excited to learn and grow with this amazing community.

I made a film on the wonder of foldscope. This film is a fictionalised account of the Indian Scientist Manu Prakash and on his invention of foldscope. The film is my love letter to science and a small gift to this community.
