Check out the ultimate guide to 16 return-to-work programs in India for women
Meet Milkuri Gangavva, the unlettered woman from a Telangana village who has emerged as a sensational YouTube star through My Village Show.
Age is just a number they say, but how many among women from the traditional Indian households are ready to make their way out to prove themselves? Once a women gets married she is entrusted with a number of chores, and once she gets old she is considered the ‘daadee ma / grandma’ of the family.
Gangavva is our super lady from Telangana who proves this wrong. She has risen from being a farmer in an obscure village to a sensational YouTube star!
Milkuri Gangavva was a farmer in Lambadipally, a village situated 200 kilometres from Hyderabad, and had no idea that she would become popular one day and be a common household name.
She was born in an agricultural family, and continued to work on her in-laws’ farmlands after marriage. Like any other women from a normal farmer family she too was engaged in tilling the ground, sowing seasonal produce in the 200-acre land, and then reaping the harvest. But everything changed upside down when she appeared on a YouTube show, and this changed her life, I must say!
Gangavva is now a YouTube sensation who rose to fame with My Village Show.
This show came to limelight in 2016; the YouTube channel is run by Srikanth Sriram, Anil Geela and a few others in Lambadipally village of Mallial mandal in Jagitial district, Telangana.
When they started, they had no idea of how they would capture the daily events of a normal village, but finding Gangavva was such a turning point for them. She had a special way of describing things in a natural manner with humour, in absolute local Telangana slang, which set the tone for the show.
Gangavva she has already acted in Ram Pothineni’s iSmart Shankar and Priyadarshi’s Mallesham which is unbelievable. She is also engaged in film promo events – she was a part of promo events for Sita, starring Bellamkonda Srinivas and Kajal Aggarwal, and Samantha’s Oh! Baby.
The energetic Gangavva out of nowhere became talk of the town only because of her free spirited style and attitude. Though she belongs to a farmer family without being educated, the way she takes on life is truly heartwarming for any woman. She says “If we believe in our strengths, anything can happen. We must strongly want it to happen. I believed in the possibility that I could act.”
On a positive note anyone can rise up from anywhere like a phoenix, and nothing must turn you down on that mighty journey.

If her MIL had accepted her with some affection, wouldn't they have built a mutually happier relationship by now?
The incident took place ten years ago.
Smita could visit her mother only in summers when her daughter had school holidays. Her daughter also enjoyed meeting her Nani, and both of them had done their reservations for a week. A month before their visit, her husband told her, “My mom is coming for 4-5 months!”
Smita shuddered. She knew the repercussions. She would have to hear sarcastic comments from her mother-in-law for visiting her mother. She may make these comments directly only a bit, but her servants would be flooded with the words, “How horrible she is! She leaves me and goes!”
Maybe Animal is going to make Ranbir the superstar he yearns to be, but is this the kind of legacy his grandfather and granduncles would wish for?
I have no intention of watching Animal. I have heard it’s acting like a small baby screaming and yelling for attention. However, I read some interesting reviews which gave away the original, brilliant and awe-inspiring plot (was that sarcastic enough?), and I don’t really need to go watch it to have an informed opinion.
A little boy craves for his father’s love but doesn’t get it so uses it as an excuse to kill a whole bunch of people when he grows up. Poor paapa (baby) what else could he do?
I was wondering; if any woman director gets inspired by this movie and replicates this with a female protagonist, what would happen?. Oh wait, that’s the story of so many women in this world. Forget about not giving them love, you have fathers who try to kill their daughters or sell them off or do other equally despicable things.
