The Indian Dalit: a video with a different perspective on the large Dalit community of India
We take a pride in calling ourselves liberals, patriots, feminists, seculars or nationalists, but when it comes to the age old prevalent caste system, have we really modernised, at all?
BeingIndian shared this thought provoking documentary wherein they gathered people from various parts of the country to talk about them and their description. The video description reads,
The Indian Dalit is a perspective piece on the large Dalit community that exists in the country. In this video we speak to Dalits from various demographics and find out more about them. Though India has progressed through the years on various fronts, the ancient system of caste still seems to prevail in the minds of the masses in various parts of the country. This video tries to understand how this affects the community of untouchables or the out castes. We also have a close look at manual scavenging and its association with caste and the working conditions of the scavengers.
