Documentary: The Death of Merit


Share

This documentary (in two parts) is based on the testimonies of parents and other relatives of Balmukund Bharti, a final year MBBS student at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi, who committed suicide on 3rd March 2010.

Here they are describing how Balmukund, a very bright Dalit student, was forced to commit suicide due to the casteist prejudices of the faculty members of country’s premier educational institution.

This documentary is not just about Balmukund but is an effort to sensitize concerned people about what happens with Dalit students, the kind of harrasment they have to suffer, in such elite educational institutions because of their caste backgrounds.
