Issue: Child Marriage
What makes Sangita a Real Hero?
A balika vadhu's life is nipped at the bud. Real Heroes brings a real life balika vadhu who at the age of 16 years fought her parents and sent prospective grooms packing. Today Sangita from Purulia is not only encouraging other girls in her village to resist child marriage, but is also fighting a battle against alcoholism. She also encourages young girls to go to school. Rural India needs more feisty young girls like Sangita.
