PRX Review – A Life of Ashes: Widows in India

by Traci Tong for PRX (November 9, 2006)

A window to the sad existence of Indian widows.

This is a very moving, thorough story that is well narrated. Good attention to detail — visually and verbally.
Well placed sound takes you from scene to scene – you feel like you’re watching the story nstead of just hearing it.The stories from the widows are heartbreaking yet matter of fact. Some of the Indian women interviewed are a bit hard to understand at times but you get their essence and you never stray from the storyline.Timing might be long for some station formats.

But if you have room on the weekend or evening shows, this is worth it.
