India Institute is launching its Niti Express Nano Tales campaign on its YouTube channel every Friday starting from 20th of this month.
With its aim to unleash the power of storytelling for social change, India Institute brings to you its campaign, Niti Express: Yehb Kahani Haq Ki Hai, on its YouTube Channel, every Friday starting from 20th May, 2016.
Niti express is a promotions and outreach program that uses stories to explain legal rights and policy ideas to the common man.
The nano tales will revolve around legal, policy and economic concepts. Through this pioneering effort, we wish to empower citizens who will be equipped to better utilise policies, laws and rights for development, and whose increased participation will improve the quality of public discourse on India’s political economy.
Between 15 and 26th January, our stories were broadcast across nine cities on Radio Mantra 91.9 FM (our collaborating partner) as “Mantra Haq Se“. Mantra Haq Se combined the wonderful medium of storytelling with radio, the most accessible and economical form of communication in small towns and rural India, to tell awareness stories and engage the listeners in a discussion with experts on the topics covered.
The project, Niti Express, is aimed at crafting stories that will eventually become a powerful medium to communicate ideas, engage with and educate millions of people about their rights and even complex ideas of policy and law. Through this initiative, we want to spread the message and tell people that “they are as free as they are aware.”
The issues picked up for the stories are- bail, dowry, illegal detention, medico legal, ragging, rape, etc. Each story is followed by an interesting discussion on some legal points raised in the story.
So, subscribe to our YouTube Channel and listen to stories on your personal rights.
Share the stories with your family and friends and support us in our initiative to spread knowledge of personal and legal rights that will empower and transform the common man into an informed citizen, the backbone of a strong free country.
