Fantastic program, best on television in recent memory
26 September 2017 | by carriecrockett-87424See all my reviews

This series took me completely by surprise. I stumbled across it by chance and it truly changed my life. So refreshing--upon a mostly superficial entertainment landscape comes this flash of genius.

Watch this show if you want any of the following: 1) to be inspired by individuals who have thoughtfully and intentionally set most of their lives aside to change the future of India; 2) be humbled by (and reminded of) the plight of those who are categorized as untouchables in India; or 3) be extremely impressed by the insightful writers of this show who have put a lot of skill and thought into how to best present their amazing subject matter to the Western world.

Thank you to all who were involved in the making of this remarkable series. I have recommended this show to all my friends and some of us are now watching it for our "book group," (yes, instead of reading a book . . . it's that good.)
