“Aparajita” (The Undefeated), is a documentary about 3 women and their grass root activism in Orissa, India.
Abstract: When the needs are infinite, it doesn’t need a revolution to change everything. Through this documentary, we try to understand, how 3 simple women, have done immense work in their life to touch human lives, and still remain down to earth. Monorama Mohapatra once ran the most published and popular news paper in Orissa, still walks down to the slums around her small city to teach kids. Annpurna Maharana, walked along Gandhi in India’s freedom movement, at the age of 91, still ready to work for the root causes of women and education. Tulsi Munda, never went to school herself, but now has dedicated her life to bring education to most interior places of the state. And to achieve these, they do not make elaborative plan, or dependent on any multinational corporations, nor funding from various government agencies, they do it all purely with their own will, effort and people from the region who get the most benefit out of their work.
