PRX Reviews: Durga’s Court

Durga’s Court

by Traci Tong for PRX (Nov. 15, 2006)

“Engaging 30-min. documentary that keeps you wanting to hear more. It’s the stories of Shabnam Ramaswamy that keep you listening and have you laughing from one minute to outraged the next. Ramaswamy was chosen to run an informal court in her small Indian village. She may not have the proper legal training but she commands respect from her villagers as well as listeners to this piece. There is no host cue and there is an interruption in the middle for station ident. But this is definitely worth airing during a weekend or evening news magazine programme.”
