Kailash Chandra Bhatt

Meet Kailash Chandra Bhatt, a true bohemian from the foothills of Himalayas - Uttarakhand.

He is a farmer, an activist and a poet. During his youth he fought for the creation of a new state, Uttarakhand.

He is one of the last few from his generation who are still continuing with activism although the mission and the world around him has changed.

Despite it being over twenty years since the creation of Uttarakhand, Kailash's dream of a new era based on the Gandhian philosophy of swaraj and simple living has been crushed by the level of corruption that took hold after independence.

He shares with us his poetry and perhaps a solution.

The release of this episode also happens to coincide with the man with a camcorder's birthday :)

So sit back and enjoy the story of Kailash Bhatt with the subtitles in English, French and Spanish. Subtitles in Italian, German and Turkish are coming shortly.
