India diaries 2: the Golden Bird Mystery
In late 2011, communications officer Sarah Filbey travelled to India to report on the work of Christian Aid partners in the country. In a set of three audio diaries, recorded in situ, Sarah shares her experiences along the way. These include reflections on India’s high levels of poverty and inequality, the nature of its democracy, and what thought leaders and passionate civil society activists she meets along the way believe is the answer to these and related burning issues.
Follow the series to hear stories of success and struggle from communities struggling for rights to land and resources on which they depend, and for insight from the road as Sarah joins land rights partner Ekta Parishad on their incredible year-long journey across India mobilising and preparing some 100,000 people to march for their rights in October 2012.
