The News Minute| October 10, 2014| 04.07 pm IST “What is it that makes a person a hero? Is it the risks they take or the lives they change?, asks Robert Redford, actor and director hosting a documentary on 14 people who risked their lives in the hope for a better world. As guns blaze across the border, news of an Indian and a Pakistani sharing this year’s Nobel Peace Prize has enthused many. But not many know of the work that Indian child rights activist Kailash Satyarthi has been doing for over three decades, in the aim that no child should ever be taken as a slave. A documentary hosted by Redford, talks about the life of Kailash Satyarthi, a man who has risked his life and been veteran of many raids in efforts to free adults and children from slavery. The video captures a live raid that Satyarthi initiates in one such place, Harayana, giving freedom and hope to the oppressed women and children in the camp.
