Another Rural innovation.. impressive one this time

Telecom in Indian Villages
A need for all of us

Gaon ki Awaaz, an initiative by The International Media Institute of India has been in news lately. It is yet another innovative communication based initiative in rural India. This particular initiative is impressive because the motive seems to be the welfare rather than business. Though they started to charge a fee of INR 10 per month, the subscribers were more willing to pay that fee because of the usefulness of the service.

They were conferred “mBillionth South Asia 2010 Award” recently.

It was heartening for me to listen to their bulletin in Avadhi dialect.

Keep up the good work guys.
