Description

In India, the lowest caste in the caste system are the Dalit caste and like the slaves of medieval times, they cannot own land. This film shows us a case of an 'upper-caste' man whose land was taken from him by the Government and handed over to a Dalit farmer. Dalits were then encouraged to lay claim to land that the government is obliged to make lands available to them' do not be afraid of 'back lashes' from the upper class. Success Story: 700 families came forward during the screenings to begin applying for their land, an initiative by Navsarjan NGO.
