6:18 pm
often hidden stories such as illegal mining, rape cases and religious polarization. i got a good to do with these journalists have to fight for the truth. and for that right to report every day but i don't know they gagnon got on with who am i gonna get someone to come down to get with it? i don't know if it's where these women get their courage from that the films created. wanted to reveal with navy that grew upon july via the 11 i how isn't that the big this newspaper when digital for school are these are where did they get this? did it? where are they coming from and where do they want to go? what are the kind of conversations that they're having all the negotiations in a professional field where women, especially ballot, women are not considered as,
6:19 pm
as journalists, but it's not only the prejudices of others that stand in their way. the journalists also have to conquer that own fears. shy m collie is one of the members of the newsroom who struggles most with her work and with a new technology that by the end of the film, her impactful reporting on a rape case leads to the rest of the a legit perpetrator. the film unpack serious issues that many of the reporters have experienced themselves, but this isn't a one dimensional story, a female suffering, and it's creative hope it will allow people to get to know india better. the celebration of india has been through a certain kind of length and as indians, maybe a dime, you look at these phones and you things, that's not my country because there is much more grace and dignity radio than what you are spotlighting. now having a phone from in the dark feature nominated there,
6:20 pm
are you open to those for multiple makers now in the future? to be able to imagine what their stories can do on the female run news room had been operating for more than a decade. when the filmmakers came to document their work. now the youtube channel has more than half a 1000000 subscribers and their team and the stories they cover. a growing and deductible to conscious extent spoke to those for maker then joins been now in the studio. contra, welcome. i'd like to talk to you a bit about the subject of the documentary that those would make us made at these women working in a paper called a cover letter. yeah. which literally means news waves. yeah. they are literally making waive on day because they are the let's, they are from the lowest of the costs in the cost hierarchy of india. so it's really pretty unimaginable for them to go out with their smartphones report on
6:21 pm
their local communities, their local stories. it really is a thing to, you know, lo and behold and see. and it's also bringing the stories of rural hinterlands to the for, which is something which is really under reported. you see stories of india from the cities mostly. but what's really missing, are these reporters bringing those stories off, you know, the local corruption, the local social injustices, the local cost, injustice is violence or crimes. and they bring it on their smartphones and they have subscribers now. so they are really truly telling their own stories, and these women were telling the their own stories. doll, it's just brick, it done for us. try and paint a picture for us as to what it means to be a valid in rural india. yeah, b t a so i have reported as well from the sparts and when i went to the rural
6:22 pm
areas, they are religious that are divided based on cost system. so they had a religious thought, see people from the higher cost and dilute villages. and there is segregation between these so like the children from one village cannot play with the children from other villages. and that also translates into violence as well at times you know, and report crimes like you know, rape and these things are also dad, which perpetrated against the, against the low cost. you also see the village is divided based on a water source or, you know, whether or not people from the lower costs can fetch water from, from these places. so it literally is, you know, a different india within these more micro, you know, places. and these stories are very, very relevant because their stories of equity of injustice is that are happening on an everyday basis towards the lift people and the lives women doing this story is
6:23 pm
actually because they are actually the lived in the line. so, you know, then they're talking about what's happening with them to seek accountability from people from higher cost. it is a challenge and they do it beautifully and their efforts happy enough, haven't they? absolutely. i mean, now they're going digital cabella, hetty, this story is going digital. they are having smartphones. they're trying to maneuver with this uniform in their hand and navigating their lives. there people who, you know, see in the documentary cells that they are the last hope because the tardies don't listen to them. the police don't listen to them. so they go to the reporters. so they literally are really making this change from the ground up on physics. and thanks so much for coming into the studio and bring that down for religious. thanks for little over a year. i mean most people have been fighting to get back what was theirs? democracy, but the hunt out won't budge. that fight has led to death's arrests and torture.
6:24 pm

6:29 pm
there's still fish. but if one day there is no more fish, i really jellyfish choices may become slimmer. but it's good to know that there's at least one kind of sustainable seafood there's nothing like jelly fish joy, that's it for today. we'll see you back here at the same time tomorrow or by work is work in play is play. but nothing stimulates me a 70 on margin ocean, quite like game in a case and play for learning games everyone the freedom to discover that unimagined potential. that increases productivity, power, games help in everyday life. play school learn. connect on d, w. stories that most people the world over information. they
