Here’s a motivating story i came across on The Hoot on how two poor girls in Bihar have come up with an all women’s news network service. This is Appan Samachar brought to you by Anita Kumari and Khusboo Kumari from a remote village near Mujaffarpur.
“The channel operates from a one-room office in Ramlila Gachhi village with a bare minimum of resources. Armed with a handy cam, tripod and gun mike, the news team, comprising a reporter, cameraperson and anchor, walks across considerable distances in the interiors to cover stories. When they have to traverse greater distances, the gutsy newswomen borrow cycles from their neighbours.”
