Ashit Kumar Ray
Ashit Kumar is father of one and veteran social activist with 7 years of field experience in rural Chhattisgarh. He conducts surveys of grassroots conditions regarding infrastructure and development. He says that his surveys reveal a depressing state of development that benefits a few while damning the rest. It also brings to light that awareness of laws and schemes and rights which can benefit and aid the marginalized is lacking. He holds the bureaucracy and red tape as responsible for the fact that a section of society has been kept economically, socially and politically deprived. He says that the need of the hour is ‘straight talking’. Something he hopes to achieve with his videos from the grassroots.
