Garbage pickers who hunt out gold from the dirt. Ah, sweet irony of life. This is a documentary that deals with the Nehrawalas, coming seasonally to Kolkata from far-away villages of India, who hunt out gold from dirt, while picking garbage and sweeping the drain streets of Bowbazar and so on.
Tathya is an effort to help the underprivileged receive recognition for their indispensable contribution towards India's growth story. Through 17 award-winning documentaries and short films, ALC India aims to share the success stories of ordinary people - the unsung heroes - in their struggle to make their ends meet in earning a living with the ever-changing environment.
Tathya has been conceptualized by management graduates from institutes like IRMA, XIMB, NIAM, IMT and Symbiosis, who are all part of the organization ALC India. ALC India is a professional management consulting institution with a focus on Enterprise Promotion, Employment Generation, Equitable Economic development, and Empowerment of the economically-marginalized in the country.
