The horror of leprosy, a disease both treatable and preventable with
modern medicine, is its stigma, which still alienates sufferers from
their friends and family.
In this documentary, the first in a new series of Unreported World,
correspondent Seyi Rhodes and Producer Richard Cookson visit India to
investigate claims that while the government says it has eliminated the

rate. Campaigner Narsappa recalls his mother's reaction when he was
diagnosed as a child: "She started to act like I wasn't her son and
grieving as if I were dead.
