  • India: Use Mobile Technology to Bring News to Isolated Tribal Communities

    Knight International Journalism Fellow Shubhranshu Choudhary’s mobile news service CGnet Swara (Voice of Chhattisgarh) transformed how people in remote areas of India receive and share news.

    The system, developed with the help of Microsoft Research India, allows people to use mobile phones to send and listen to audio reports in their local language. This service circumvents India’s ban on private radio news and reaches people who never before had access to local news.
