About the film

The film is an exploration about the practice of Rampatar - a bowl which is used to discriminate dalits from the remaining castes. The film tries to find out the origins of this custom and how this bowl became a symbol of oppression, while trying to find the present condition of the dalits in Gujarat and how a bowl became related to the practice of untouchability.
