Fixing India| Lightning Up A Ray Of Hope In Laxmanpur Bathe

In the 10th episode of Fixing India, we feature, S M Zafar Iqbal from Bihar, who has left no stone unturned to make to difference. 

VVs Community Correspondent S M Zafar Iqbal, has worked in ways to create social change to provide absolute needs for his community. 

This episode takes you to Laxamnpur bathe in Bihar, where people have been living in darkness, without electricity for decades. It’s the same village, where 58 Dalits were massacred in 1997 by upper caste militant group- Ranvir Sena, including 16 children and 27 women. Laxamnpur bathe became the headline of every newspaper. However, with time the situation of the village hardly changed in terms of any social development. 

When Zafar, learned about the power issue in the village, he was determined to bring change for his community. It took more than a year to get the electricity to the village. But Zafar is proud that he is able to capture change in front of his camera and people’s lives behind it.
