A Dalit man testifies on how he will never allow his own sons and daughters to marry into a ‘lower’ Dalit sub-caste. The absurdity of this situation speaks volumes on how untouchability is embedded in the culture, even amongst the Dalits.

A Campaign to End Untouchability
ARTICLE 17 is a campaign launched by Video Volunteers on April 14th, 2012, to urge the National Commission for Schedule Castes, (the government body that is constitutionally appointed to direct and implement the safeguards against untouchability), to prosecute cases of untouchability. Community Correspondents across the country are documenting video testimonies of different forms of untouchability. The first 22 videos are featured here and more will be added as the campaign continues.
We want to give viewers the responsibility, as witnesses, to end this age-old oppression once and for all.
