Summary: "This film investigates the ironies and tensions between sacred and secular Kabir, interweaving the sacralization of Kabir by the Kabir Panth (an organized sect of the followers of Kabir) with the secular appropriation of the same poet by the social activist group Eklavya. The story unfolds through the life of Prahlad Tipanya, a Dalit singer whose participation in the Panth and Eklavya begins to raise difficult questions for him about ritual and organized religion."--kabirproject.org.
