India Untouched: Stories of A People Apart
(Research Documentary)
Directed by Stalin K.
 
The video linked below offers some keen insights into the practice of Untouchability in India.
The video shows how the Laws of Manu (Traditionally seen as the most authoritative of the books of the Hindu code (Dharma-shastra) in India, according to Encyclopedia Britannica) promotes the subjugation of one caste by another.

The origin of Untouchability, according to the video has roots in Hinduism ,but is pervasive across all of India and practiced by Sikhs, Christians and Muslims alike. India untouched takes you on a journey across eight states in India profiling how Untouchability is practiced, enforced and preserved.
