Villagers buy vegetables from a minivan in a remote village where Video Volunteer videojournalist Niru J. Rathod, 24, is making documentaries on topics of caste discrimination and water quality issues in a remote village in Surendranagar, Gujarat, India on 14 December 2012. Niru, the 8th child in a family of 11 girls born to a Dalit construction worker, has been using videography for social change since 2006. She shoots and produces her own short documentaries and is a committed video activist, having conducted hundreds of village video screenings where she also speaks to thousands of men, shattering their ideas about what a woman and a Dalit can do while bringing massive changes to the communities she documents.
