India's Forgotten People
From respected forgers of armour and weaponry for Hindu kings in the 16th century to nomadic blacksmiths who barely survive, the history of India’s proud but forgotten Gadia Lohar community is told for the first time in Deana Uppal’s new 2020 documentary; India’s Forgotten People. The film provides a voice for a community that went from being highly respected to one of the country’s most poverty-stricken, selling handmade items from metal scraps and living on the margins of Indian society.
