The storyline of some movies I saw in childhood centred around village fairs – lost and found themes, kidnapping, poverty and exploitation.
I see a new tribe of village women here, all made up and wearing red lipstick selling sugarcane juice. It is a marvel how the local mindset has changed from keeping women well-covered inside the house to having them here.
India is changing in the deep hinterlands. I hope they lose archaic patriarchal mindsets and find better reasons to live.
I hope the women find reasons to work and prosper beyond being a show piece to attract attention.
