Amit Kumar is a Dalit activist and Community Correspondent from Haryana, a state infamous for violence inflicted upon the lower castes.

Personal, provocative and proactive, Amit’s IndiaUnheard videos continue to shape a new platform from which he, and victims of violence, discrimination and caste slavery, can find justice.
