Interviewer:How did you get the idea for JSWM Productions? What was the process behind the creation of this company?
Mr. Suresh K Goswami: In 2010, I happened to visit Kashmir after a very long time. I was fully aware that my birth place and the motherland had been terribly molested by militancy, politics and selfish elements reducing the most beautiful paradise to merely a blood soaked battleground. I also had the full knowledge of the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits, when nearly a million people had to leave their homes in Kashmir and run away in search of safety, security and shelter. But I was not aware of the terrible status of their life after the exodus. So when I visited Kashmir in 2010, I came across many refugee camps where Kashmiri Pandits were managing to survive the most miserable life one can imagine. I was touched but did not feel bad, I got just furious &felt very guilty for not being aware of what my community was going through.
At that time I was CEO of Sohar Steel PLC, Oman. I resigned and flew back to Jammu. Stayed in one of the camps, lived with the extreme misery and the innocent refugees for a few months to feel and live their sufferings. I felt completely helpless because I could not think of any solution to the problem. But I was able to decide from that point I would write and make films to showcase the present Kashmir to the entire world. So I set up JSWM productions, an independent production house. Within one year JSWM produced and released a feature length Docudrama on the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits“Ziyarat”, which was eventually screened and honored in many International Film Festivals around the globe. That is how JSWM Production started.

Mr. Suresh K Goswami: JSWM is a very small set up at my residence in Lavasa, but it’s a complete production house where we process the films completely from script to the finished product with no external support. The only factor which is responsible for the company performance is the quality of content. The films produced so far including my published book “Burning Sapphires” have received recognition and honour on a global level. So I would confidently say that the company has maintained a very high content quality and dedication to match the vastly competitive field
