Indian documentary shows women as warriors and models


A new documentary has gained rare access to a Hindu fundamentalist camp where young Indian women are instructed to be warriors.

The World Before Her - from a Canadian-based director - also goes behind the scenes at another training arena for Indian women: the world of the Indian beauty pageant.

Talking Movies' Tom Brook reports.

Talking Movies is broadcast on BBC World News on Saturday at 13:30 GMT and is repeated on Sunday at 00:30, 07:30 and 20:30 BST.
