Writing with fire

Sushmit Ghosh, Rintu Thomas


The Dalits are rejected by the caste system in India, especially the women. A group of Dalit women have come together to conduct some investigative journalism and expose the injustices of society, but not without risk. While fighting for survival, they created the only Indian newspaper led by Dalit women.
