Episode Title: 
The World Before Her

This is a tale of two Indias. In one, Ruhi Singh is a small-town girl competing in Bombay to win the Miss India pageant — a ticket to stardom in a country wild about beauty contests. In the other, Prachi Trivedi is the young, militant leader of a fundamentalist Hindu camp for girls, where she preaches violent resistance to Western culture, Christianity and Islam.Moving between these divergent realities, the film creates a lively, provocative portrait of the world’s largest democracy at a critical transitional moment — and of two women who hope to shape its future. By Nisha Pahuja.
