Last quote by Shalini Joshi
The mainstream media only carried stories about the big cities, and the reporters were mostly educated, English-speaking men belonging to upper castes. Dalit women are the most marginalised, so we made a conscious decision to only hire them, so they could report news that is truly local. To people in these districts, English and Hindi are the languages of the elite, of those in power, whereas the local language is seen as second-class. It's very hard to be a journalist there, (especially for) a woman of a lower caste. They have been threatened and intimidated many times.feedback
