Sunday saw the launch of a new website – http://freedomtodiscuss.com/ – it’s a forum to explore and discuss world issues such as development, governance, conflict or human rights related, or more simply the issues that affect many of us day in, day out. This can include topics and issues which we hadn’t realised before or which perhaps main-stream media is overlooking.
Caste Away Arts is supporting this great new website, it’s about time we stopped relying on mainstream media to form our opinions. We have written an article for the site called “Different Shades of Brown”. This article explores the age-old issue of skin colour in the Indian sub-continent and discusses how it relates to caste discimination and other cultural factors. Please visit the website to read our article and leave comments.
