Came across this blog site which describes a survey conducted for women in rural India. Glad to know the results and more important a decently optimistic outcome of television viewing after a long time. Especially after the abashing that tv-viewing has taken.
This survey clearly reveals that television watching is changing the face of women in rural India. Women who since the beginning of time in India, has been doomed to an inferior status and discriminated in every aspect of life, are finally coming to life :).
TV viewing has resulted in them becoming more proactive and well informed. They are raising their voice against beating and being looked upon by their male counterpart. Female education is on a rise which is an important step in empowering them through skills.
This is the face of modern India :D
