Neetu Singh: Making of a Mukammal Story

The second episode features Neetu Singh, who built her career with Gaon Connection, and by consistently challenging the notion that a journalist’s job stops at the report. With tremendous insight into how to work with local structures to get a job done, Neetu Singh reminds us that it all begins – and ends with – details, details, details.

Neetu Singh is an independent journalist and the founder of Shades of Rural India. Her consistent reporting on gender-based violence in rural India has led to effective police action and justice for survivors. Neetu has over 13 years of experience in rural journalism, and has won the Laadli Media Award eight times for gender sensitive reporting. She also won Chameli Devi Jain Award for outstanding women mediapersons and the Priyanka Dahele Award for promising young journalists in 2020.

10 years ago, F-Rating was created to help classify films which are written or directed by one or more female film-makers, or feature complex female characters who contribute significantly to the story. But what if ‘feminist’ is not a noun but an adjective? What if the feminist lens lends itself to all practices and not only film-making? Nirantar Radio brings to you ‘F-Rated Interviews’ where The Third Eye team speaks to different practitioners about their practice – but with a feminist lens.
