The World Before Her

Season 26, Episode 10 of 15

This program tells tells the tale of two Indias. In one, Ruhi Singh is a small-town girl competing in Bombay to win the Miss India pageant -- a ticket to stardom in a country wild about beauty contests. In the other India, Prachi Trivedi is the young, militant leader of a fundamentalist Hindu camp for girls, where she preaches violent resistance to Western culture, Christianity and Islam. Moving between these divergent realities, the film creates a provocative portrait of the world's largest democracy at a critical transitional moment-and of two women who hope to shape its future.
