This music video reworks the epic Ramayana story to critique the caste oppression implicit in it. Sung by Sambhaji Bhagat and composed by Sambhaji, Anand, and the late Dava Pawar, the work opposes the systematic oppression and negation of basic human rights in the name of mythology.

Featured in Asia Art Archive exhibition Udlot–udlot, curated by Inti Guerrero.
