The Changing Face of the Indian Countryside

  • Sharebar

The film is a voyage through the Indian Countryside, a journey across the pulsating life and cultural ethos of rural India. Post Independence, rural India has witnessed tremendous change with new roads, bridges, rail tracks and transport systems that have been interwoven into a homogenous unit. The new age farmer is equipped with modern machines and techniques like tractors, pumps and combined harvesters that have helped to increase productivity by five to ten times higher as compared to a few decades back. The film observes the changes in the Indian rural lifestyle, especially the lives of women, who have also come a long way – from being confined within the four walls to taking charge of agriculture and working in mills and factories with men.
