Meet Akshatha Shetty and Piyush Goswami, who have embarked on a journey through rural India. This journey of theirs is one of a kind. They have been traveling for the last two years experiencing and documenting stories to highlight the country’s social issues.
Their project Rest Of My Family is a documentation of amazing stories about people from all over the country – from Rajasthan to Nagaland and from Jammu and Kashmir to Tamil Nadu.
They also have not shied away from mentioning their own experiences. From troubles with police officials, broken down cars and problems with safe housing to unbelievable love and affection, they have seen it all.
Moved by the love and compassion that have they received, Shetty and Goswami have given up their lucrative jobs and homes to narrate stories from the ignored rural India. But what they have realised – unfortunately – is that only documenting these stories will not affect the lives of these people.
