Sunita Kasera I live in Karauli, Rajasthan with my husband and children. I was in the process of completing my Master’s degree when I got married. My father promised me that I could continue my studies after marriage, but my in-laws didn’t allow it. So in the beginning I was a housewife confined to four walls. But my husband is very supportive and as our family grew, I needed to earn so I started working for an NGO dealing with empowerment of women, water harvesting and informing people about public schemes available.
I’ve always had a lot of interest in politics and development, and when I heard about Video Volunteers I decided to apply. Since I started making videos, I have become well known in my locality. I talk to a lot of people from all backgrounds, people approach me with problems and this makes me feel good, like I’m doing something. I love meeting people and researching stories. I am now in contact with several government officials, and I was the first women to be invited to join the Press Committee and it makes me feel proud.
