Yeh Mera India is an attempt to explore the real stories behind the headlines that are seen every night at home on all the news channels. Headlines full of violence, atrocities and we wonder how this world keeps moving in spite of so much of multi layered bias which is actually the root cause of all this. These stories deal with racial bias, communal bias, caste bias, class bias, gender bias, lingual bias and immigrant bias that plaque the today's society and the outcome is startling. It is the human ability to redeem themselves at any given moment which reveals that behind every bad news there is good news.
It is a story of one day in the life of 12 people from different strata of Mumbai city which is a melting pot of cultures. They all start the day with a goal in mind but surprisingly end up achieving exactly the opposite, giving it a feel of Greek tragedy of futile human efforts in front of the inevitable destiny. However in Yeh Mera India it is more of a reversal of fortune from bad to good than from good to bad.
