Cellphones Bring Communications, Development to Remote Areas of India

Jan 112012

India's Asian News International reports on a "revolutionary" initiative by Knight International Journalism Fellow Shubhranshu Choudhary that allows tribals in a remote region of the country to communicate with each other and with mainstream media and activists outside of their region. In this video report, a citizen journalist trained by Choudhary says the service has allowed villagers to report significant problems that might have gone unreported in the past.
