Gujarat Elections

from BBC on Dafers, a nomadic tribe in Gujarat, viewed suspiciously as 'criminal caste' and voting in these elections for the first time.

Career dreams
Hanifa's younger sister, Shubhanben, has given birth to her first baby – a boy of 20 days old. Dafers have no access to healthcare and their children are not welcome at village schools.

But that doesn't stop the family from dreaming of a bright future for their as yet unnamed baby. "I want him to go to school and become a doctor when he grows up," says his mother.

"Or maybe he can become a magistrate," interjects grandmother Sakinanben.
