This series contains the following titles:

Although it is illegal to discriminate against untouchables, the members of this group continue to be looked down on in South Asian society and are still pressed into the most debasing roles. This five-part series examines the situations of individual Dalits who, despite routine violation of their humanity, are living their lives with all the dignity they can muster. The underlying issues that keep them in their dehumanizing trades—abject poverty, a lack of plausible alternatives, a patriarchal social order, the sheer stigma of being a Dalit—make the series a particularly valuable tool for stimulating powerful discussions on human rights. Some content may be objectionable. 5-part series, 30 minutes each.
