INDIA UNHEARD – the Grassroots Newsroom

IndiaUnheard is a video news agency formed entirely of community-based correspondents whose stories capture the unique perspective of India’s most marginalized communities. From the Tribal heartland of Chattisgarh, to the deserts of Rajasthan; from the ecological hotspots of the Sunderbands to the cities at the heart of the Kashmir conflict; from the mining-affected and insurgency-ridden districts of Jharkhand to the industrial corridors of an India undergoing transformation, VV’s Correspondents are where the true picture of India emerges.
