UPDATE: Its almost 4 years since this video was posted… Sadly, when filming this video, Saraj knew the reality of his future and this world and human nature. I ran into to him yesterday doing exactly what he said would be his future. The worst is 1/4 million views here …. all the useless good wishes, empty promises, and prayers… no one… actually acted and that is the saddest statement on us…. We failed.

Please read this whole notice on this video – To those asking about sponsoring Raj: We filmed this on our visit in Jan. 2010.

We listened to his story for a while and asked if we could interview him so others could hear it.

This amazing young man of the streets speaks 4 languages and is brilliant well beyond his years.

You will hear in this video both hope and you will hear that there is no hope.

Benares, India’s holiest town, is the final destination for millions of pilgrims. They come from all over the country, making the difficult, dangerous journey to bath in the sacred River Ganges. For some, this will be the last journey they ever make. According to Hindu mythology, the souls of bodies cremated here will avoid the cycles of reincarnation and go directly to paradise. Every day, hundreds of corpses are brought here by their families to be cremated on funeral pyres. Thousands of tons of coal and wood are needed to keep the fires burning and a busy ‘coal-route’ has developed.

India’s economy is growing faster than China’s, yet a third of its population still live without electricity. But now a small company Pollinate Energy are selling solar-powered lights to India’s slum-dwellers.

In the absence of power, every night the air in the sprawling shanty-towns of India’s cities fill with the dense smoke of kerosene used for lighting and cooking. For the slum-dwellers, the smoke is a killer – equivalent to consuming up to two packs of cigarettes a day. “We basically decided that if we wanted to solve this huge problem it had to be a business solution. You just can’t give away 400 million lights”, says Kat Kimmorley, co-founder of Pollinate Energy. Pollinate’s simple and safe solution comes in the form of a portable solar-powered light, in which the poorest can invest in a brighter future. Their demand is now giving work to Indians like Latha, a young mother who sells the lamps to slum dwellers: “My status has increased. My life has changed”, she says.

More than 40 per cent of India’s 61 million children are malnourished, prompting the prime minister to declare the problem a “national shame”.

A recent report reveals that levels are twice that of sub-Saharan Africa, making every third malnourished child in the world an Indian.

India has one of the fastest-growing economies in the world and runs one of the largest child feeding programmes.

But critics say only a fraction of aid reaches the needy.

20 My Daily Life in the SLUMS OF MUMBAI (Life-Changing 5 Days)

Back to menu

23 apr. 2018

UPDATE: a few years after living in Dharavi I made a short video about its history. Check it out here:…

Two and a half years ago, during my first visit in India, I spent 2 days walking all around the slums of Mumbai. Even though I got to learn quite a bit about the life in the slums, I didn’t have the chance to live inside the slums and because of that I left with more questions than answers.

So now that I came back to India for the second time, I decided to go back to Mumbai and spend five days living in Dharavi, which is one of the largest slums in the world.

This experience opened my eyes in ways I couldn’t have imagined, because I got to spend so much time with the local people, who completely transformed my outlook on what their lives were like.

You see, as most outsiders, I had a very distorted view of the people of the slums. We grow up hearing stories about them dying on the streets, no one being able to read and write, kids having to sleep surrounded by flesh-eating rats and so on.

There are, of course, tons of problems that need to be addressed, especially when it comes to sanitation. For example, sources say that in Dharavi there is an average of 1 toilet for a thousand people. Also, livestock generally lives in the same quarters with people and that, combined with the fact that the local water sources lack cleaning facilities, sometimes causes the spread of contagious diseases.

However, people there are just like everywhere else. They have their own dreams, goals, careers, thoughts and emotions. They are in no way different from the rest of us.

It doesn’t matter where we come from. We are all equal. Some of us are born with golden spoons in our mouths, others are not. But that doesn’t define us. What defines us is our pursuit of happiness, our compassion for others and our ability to adapt to whatever circumstances we’re in and make the best of them.

24 The Caste System in India

1 dec. 2018

25 Dalit Muslims of India | Al Jazeera World

2 sep. 2015

Al Jazeera English

For centuries India’s social structure was built around a rigid Hindu caste system. While the caste system was constitutionally abolished in 1950, its legacy still deeply affects contemporary Indian society.

The Hindu population, around 84 percent of the 1.2 billion people that live in the country, is still influenced by the four main traditional castes, which also have their own sub-sects: Brahmins, the priestly and academic class; Kshatriya, the warrior caste; Vaishya, which comprises the business community; and Shudra, the working class.

Outside these four groups are others, including the Dalits, who are at the bottom of the hierarchy.

Dalits have traditionally done jobs considered ritually impure, like garbage collection, street sweeping, the cremation of dead bodies and the disposal of human waste.

With Dalits continuing to face prejudice and discrimination within their own communities, some try to find social acceptance by converting to Buddhism, Christianity, Sikhism or Islam.

“It bothers me whenever I introduce myself. People ask about my surname,” says Rakesh, who’s a dhobi, the washerman caste.

Rakesh has converted to Islam and changed his name to Ali Kanojia.

“I tell them my name is Rakesh. They ask, ‘Rakesh what?’ They normally ask you this at a Hindu’s house,” he says.

But conversion is not simply a way out – prejudices still carry over into other religions. Many converts face resistance and even violence from their families or the communities they were born into and the new chosen faith can pose a different set of challenges – like those faced by Ali Kanojia from his own family.

“It’s not easy to convert to Islam,” he says. “They [the family] say it’s not right. I ask, Why? They say it’s because Muslims have a bad reputation.”

Abdulrahman Bharti’s conversion to Islam almost cost him his life.

“I got shot by Hindu people from the Sawar clan … . When a person converts, the new religion welcomes them, but people from the old religion try to stop them. If they can’t, they’ll try to kill them. This happened to me,” says Bharti who was shot in the chest and leg.

After independence in 1947, the Indian government introduced positive discrimination in favour of low caste groups, but not everyone enjoys the same benefits.

It’s a highly complex benefit structure with certain jobs, education opportunities and political representation reserved for different social and religious groups.

The Reservation Act covers a wide range of eventualities, but for Dalits the disadvantages of conversion may arguably outweigh the advantages, especially when it comes to jobs.

“The protection includes Sikhs and Jains, and Buddhists, but it doesn’t include Christians and Muslims, so what happens is that they get excluded from those – the quotas for SCs [Scheduled Castes],” says Meenakshi Ganguly, South Asia director for Human Rights Watch.

Kanojia, for instance, has not been able to get a government job.

“If you don’t have a lower caste certificate you won’t get a reserved job. I don’t have the lower caste certificate. My parents were illiterate and had little understanding of things… I can’t get a job anywhere,” says Kanojia.

Set primarily in Mumbai and in the Madhya Pradesh countryside, this film provides an insight into conversion to other religions – the social reformer and principal architect of the Indian constitution, BR Ambedkar, was born a Dalit and converted to Buddhism and many followed in his footsteps – and the processes for finalising conversions.

We hear the personal stories of different Dalit Muslims and the campaign of one man, descended from Muslim converts, to end garbage picking and discrimination against Dalits in Madhya Pradesh.

This is part of a broader struggle where castes, clans and religions determine the course of millions of lives.

Aloha, guys!

It is time to meet the locals of Delhi. In this issue we will have as many as 5 heroes from different castes! We will talk about real life in India, how life is different in Delhi and the regions, about castes and the life of different generations.

First, we will take a stroll through the Khanpur Village in the southern part of Delhi along with our heroine Sawi, who works in a restaurant. Savi will tell us about how her daily life is arranged, show us her home, tell about religion, Indian wedding and family life. Savi will also comment on the popular myth that in Delhi water from the toilet is mixed with water, which then enters the water supply.

Then we will get acquainted with Liza, who recently married an Indian. She will introduce us to her family and we will learn how they live in India from several generations at once. So the mother and father of the family will talk about what India was like 20 years ago, what has changed in the country during this time and what traditions the local population honors, what education was like. Their family live in a huge house, which is served by three helpers – one prepares food, the others help her and are engaged in cleaning. In the video you will learn how much helpers earn and how much money is needed to maintain a house worth 400,000,000 rupees.

23-year-old Diksha, whom we met by chance on the street, will tell us about the life and dreams of the younger generation.

And in this issue, I will introduce you to Tanya’s husband from the main issue of «Expats» in Delhi – Rohan, who left India for 22 years to study and travel around the world. And then he returned and opened a franchise restaurant in Delhi.


▶ According to UN forecasts, in 2022 India will overtake China and become the most populous country in the world! The number of residents by that time can reach 1.6 billion people, which will be almost equal to the population of the United States and China.

▶ India is a multi-ethnic country with more than 400 ethnic groups living on its territory. Hindi and English are considered to be the state here, but the government also recognizes 17 other languages (Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Nepali, Manipuri, Konkani, Kannada, Kashmiri, Malayalam, Marathi, Orii, Punjabi, Sanskrit, Sindhi, Tamil, Telugu, Urdu). All in all, India speak 447 different languages and 2 thousand dialects.

▶ 74% of young Indians prefer marriage to their personal choice. With all this, 1 out of 100 marriages in India ends in divorce. By the way, one of the lowest in the world! By the way, the largest family in the world lives in India. A man named Zion Chan has 39 wives, 94 children and 33 grandsons. They all live together in a house with 100 rooms.

▶ Although according to statistics, 35% of the population lives below the poverty line, and most of the country lives on less than $2 a day, more than a million Indians are millionaires.

▶ A cow is a sacred animal in India. She is also considered one of the seven mothers of mankind, because she gives milk, like women.

But it’s the poor who’ve been hit the hardest by the pandemic and the economic disruption. Some had committed suicide due to their inability to get out of their economic predicament. Although the country had pulled millions out of poverty only recently, it’s now facing the dire prospect of witnessing millions being pushed back to the margins once again as a result of the pandemic. Can India deal with the dual onslaught of the pandemic and economic disaster at the same time? What more can it do to save millions from the brink of starvation and death?

43 India’s Coal Rush: A Town on Fire

19 jan. 2016

Jharia lies at the heart of India’s largest coal belt, within the north-east state of Jharkhand. The area produces almost all of the country’s high-quality coking coal required in the production of steel as well as in thermo-electricity plants. Yet the vast open cast mines that stretch through these lands lie on top of underground fires that have been burning for over a century.

Recent mining expansions have provoked these flames causing over 70 open fires to erupt along the earth’s surface, spewing noxious gases and destroying the land. Those hardest hit are local villagers and workers in towns such as Jharia – forced to endure poisonous air, dangerous fires and unbearable heat.

Envrionmental activists have highlighted how the state-run coal mining BCCL firm has deliberately exacerbated the open fires, so as to justify the eviction of locals due to safety risks, and thereby clear the areas of coal-rich land suited for their expansion.

The nearby town of Dhanbad is particularly notorious for its ‘coal mafia’ – an informal name given to the corrupt mechanics behind India’s coal trade – one mired by greed and exploitation.

Earlier this year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced plans to double state-produced coal by 2020 in the hopes of meeting India’s rapidly rising energy demands. Yet, in the setting of global climate change and emission responsibilities, coal remains one of the dirtiest forms of energy production.

Set in the bleak and naturally striking scenery of Jharia, this story looks into the poverty-stricken, remote and forgotten lives of people at the mercy of corporations and governed by coal. This is the story of those buried beneath Indias billion dollar coal operations – the dirty end of a dirty business.
