Summary "In the early twentieth century, Mahatma Gandhi inspired millions of Indians to rise up against the British colonial state and successfully agitate for the establishment of a democratic and free India. In 2007, India celebrated the 60th anniversary of its existence as an independent nation. But what kind of democracy does India have today, and what does it mean to actually live in the world' largest democracy? Adopting the conventions of a road-movie, the film crew travels down the famous trail of Gandhi's salt march, stopping at the same villages and cities where Gandhi and his followers raised their call for independence ... [to document] the stories of ordinary citizens in India today [and] to discover the current and future state of democracy in India"--Original container
