The world before her

Check out the trailer for this stunning documentary which captures stark contrasts in the lives and beliefs of two kinds of Indian women. One set of women are being trained in Hindutva philosophy and self defense, while the other set of women are training for the prestigious Miss India pageant. At first glance it appears that the two sets of women have absolutely nothing in common, but both these kinds of women are asserting their rights in a paternalistic society in their own way.
