This episode of DALEEL is about the excruciatingly long wait for justice that millions go through in the country because of the large number of pending cases.
We have a wonderful panelist in Vivek Gomber, producer of the highly acclaimed film ‘Court’ who also played the role of the lawyer in this story of a Dalit activist-poet who is held ‘responsible’ for the ‘suicide’ of a sewage cleaner, and engages with why the wheels of justice grind so slow. Or not at all.
Apart from Vivek Gomber, the panel includes Harish Mehla, a practising lawyer and prime force behind Chandigarh Creative Cinema Circle, someone who has studied how court room dramas present a very different picture than the reality on the ground. Also participating is the spokesperson of People’s Union of Civil Liberties, Arjun Sheoran.
