The Emergency Era was a dark time in our Nation’s history where democracy itself was held hostage. All normal functioning of the nation was suspended as the government silenced it’s critics and continued to do as it pleased. Shukranu highlights one such human rights violation undertaken by the Government with the forced sterilizations.
Between 1975-77, numerous men had to undergo a forced vasectomy as part of population control drive. Almost all of them didn’t want to be sterilized and a few of them lost their lives due to botched operations. Watch the trailer of Shukranu and learn more about that dark memory with a humourous satire, this Valentine’s Day.
