Water, by Deepa Mehta

I remember when I watched WATER and, of course, I remember the pain and the tears.

“Water is set in 1938 and explores the lives of widows in Varanasi, India. It is a dark introspect into the tales of rural Indian widows in the 1940s and covers controversial subjects such as misogyny and ostracism. It was first released in India on 9 March 2007.

I recommend this movie because now I am in India and yesterday we went to visit a project called “Justice For Widows”. After 11 years, here in the villages of Warangal it’s still the same situation, but Bala Vikasa is changing this!

Thanks and… let’s learn from this movie and this reality!
