My desire is to compile the perspectives as a spectrum in the form of a video(if could I call it a documentary), which will be a one stop place for a young thoughtful individual to understand – the why and why not of changing surname as a means of protest against the caste system. This video should be available at the top of internet when somebody inquisitive decides to explore.
But till then, the following are the links to some articles which attempt to cover a particular aspect of the issue/idea. I wish this compilation, is a competent buffer till the documentary turns a reality.
