Where the Dream Has Not Yet Reached

Last week India celebrated Republic Day in celebration of its democratic constitution coming into force in 1950. As both a celebration of this day and a social critique, a group of filmmakers pieced together images from India's history set to a narrator reading a powerful "Ode to India." While this country has made incredible progress over the last 75 years, there are still many places where the dream has not yet reached. That's all I will say, as the video portrays this better than I ever could. Disclaimer: there are some disturbing images shown that may not be appropriate for all viewers.
