hailing from one of Bengal’s most primitive tribes, the Lodhas, Sanjit has worked extensively with a tribal movement to organize and ensure right to work and entitlements. Sanjit quit the movement when it started becoming overtly political in nature, and started working alone, to highlight the fact that his community, along with the Munda & Baiga tribals, are the most marginalized in West Bengal , with next to no access to health care and education. The region, West Medinipur, is slated to become one of West Bengal’s premier industrial hubs, and Sanjit expects his association with Video Volunteers to give him a chance to renew his fight for his community’s right to forestland & access to entitlements.
