About the Film:
Victory to Change tells the story of two remarkable activists, Varsha Jawalkgekar and Mukesh Rajak, as they fight for the most marginalized members of Indian society. Varsha and Mukesh are community organizers and citizen journalists, educating and motivating the people in the communities they serve while simultaneously working to expose corruption and injustice. Varsha and Mukesh routinely face harassment, potential imprisonment and even death threats from an opposition that will fight to maintain the power dynamics that have been in place for centuries.
Through the leadership of Varsha and Mukesh, communities that have historically acquiesced to discrimination and violence are learning to affirm their dignity and fight for their rights. This revolution is embodied in the slogan Varsha uses to greet the members of her community: "Jai Parivartan!" - Victory to Change.
