Description

The Media Rumble session on "Representing the Unrepresented" was moderated by Sanjoy Roy, managing director at Teamwork Arts. The panel included Ashok Das, editor in chief at Dalit Dastak; Meera Devi, bureau chief at Khabar Lahariya; Karma Paljor, editor in chief of East Mojo and a former news anchor; and Tejaswi, digital editor of Gaysi.


Ashok talked about the biggest hurdles in bringing Dalit voices to the public, citing lack of funds and advertisements. He also said the mainstream media turns a blind eye to issues of caste. Meera described the importance of covering stories typically ignored by the mainstream press, and her personal journey from Bandha in Uttar Pradesh. Tejaswi talked about the power of the internet in democratising the media space and bringing LGBTQ+ issues to the forefront, though she added a caveat on its limited accessibility.
