1 Enakshi Ganguly = """India Untouched: Stories of a People Apart'' is a documentary that journeys across eight States and four religions and depicts the continued exclusion and segregation of those considered "untouchables'' in India."Source: http://www.thehindu.com/todays-paper/tp-national/tp-newdelhi/india-untouched/article1830896.ece"
2 Enakshi Ganguly = ""Dalits represent a community of 170 million in India, constituting 17% of the population.  One out of every six Indians is Dalit, yet due to their caste identity Dalits regularly face discrimination and violence which prevent them from enjoying the basic human rights and dignity promised to all citizens of India.  Caste-based social organization extends beyond India, finding corollaries in Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh, as well as other countries outside of South Asia (see below).  More than 260 million people worldwide suffer from this “hidden apartheid” of segregation, exclusion, and discrimination."Source: http://www.ncdhr.org.in/dalits-untouchability/"
