Passage:

Protectors of the Indian Culture

The world before her’ is a documentary film showing two extreme kinds of cultures for women — one, found in a camp of Durga Vahini and the other in a beauty pageant contest of Miss India. The movie begins with Prachi Trivedi — a young, 20-year old trainer at the Durga Vahini teaching camp who has been attending the camp since the age of three. She has become a trainer in the camp now. There are snippets in the film, where Prachi confesses that she enjoys the commands, hates the “typical girls” and the selfless service she is providing to the Durga Vahini.

Durga Vahini is affiliated to the Bajrang Dal, an organization consisting of women who are committed to protecting the national culture and religion by bringing a renaissance in the Society. The film-makers were given the opportunity to shoot the ‘Durgas-in-making’ in one of their camps, while interviewing some girls alongside Prachi. The training in the Durga Vahini camps is not just learning physical combat, but also provocative lectures against Western culture, increasing Muslim-Christian penetration into Hindu community and the limited nurturing role of women in the Society
