Chalo Jeete Hain: Description
A 32-minute short film titled Chalo Jeete Hain, screened on Wednesday (25 July 2018) at the GMC Balayogi auditorium by vice president M Venkaiah Naidu, is more remarkable for the social message it carries than the fact that it is inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s childhood days. The film is essentially centered on deep-seated caste prejudices that glaringly exist among Hindus, much to the discomfiture of a young lad called “Naru” (the abbreviated name of Narendra). It revolts Naru’s sense of justice to see a boy from a scheduled caste denied education on account of his penury. The travails of the members of the scheduled caste and society’s apathy towards them is boldly depicted in the movie.
