Barwani is a beautiful town in Madhya Pradesh called ‘The Paris of Nimar’ for its architectural and scenic splenetic. But for Correspondent Rakesh Khanna it is also land where many struggles are being fought fervently but they remain unheard. He has been an activist since the age of 14, when he participated in Narmada Bachao Aandolan (Save Narmada Movement) and worked closely for ensure resettlement of those displaced by the dam. With IndiaUnheard, he wants to bring these millions of unseen struggles to light and make sure that the noise they make is being heard.
