Aarti and Bharati

Twin sisters experience the threat of under-age marriage.

Use this short video (4 mins, 30 secs) to start a discussion about:

  • the often-hidden custom of child-marriage
  • the power of social norms that can sustain or challenge harmful practices
  • programmes and services, such as India’s Childline, to prevent abuses

Ask your audience some questions before screening the video. Ask, for example:

  • Do child marriages take place in your country/ society?
  • What does the law say?
  • Do people continue with outdated, harmful practices? And if so, why?

After the screening the video, ask the audience for their views about the story and the characters.
