    For some writers, their activism and storytelling nourish each other. In the days since she passed away, Mahasweta Devi has been called the conscience keeper of our times; the voice of dispossessed; of rebellion, in the many pages that have been dedicated to her. The below documentaries, directed by Joshy Joseph and produced by Drik India are journeys into the writer's most intimate thoughts.
