|Sona Khatik is a well know radio personality in Kapilvastu. Her simple yet confident persona is supplemented by her mellow and sweet voice and her alluring, down-to-earth nature is charismatic.
Her radio programs, mainly in her local language, Awadhi, is every local household's favorite. Strangers greet her with a smile of acknowledgement in the streets and she is overwhelmed with praise and recognition she has garnered for her work. But a thought also triggers in Sona's mind 'Would she have got the same treatment from the people in the society if she was an uneducated Dalit girl?'
