Is the "Why Poverty?" documentary films initiative an effective approach for significantly reducing poverty?

Comments

The responsibility of the State

Why poverty? Is a very relevant and significant set of issues, questions and debates that the Communication Initiative has brought to the fore. A lot of economic turmoil is taking place in present day India as well, the country where I live and work. Analyses from varying perspectives emphasise that one of the fundamental factors is the manner in which the State is shirking its responsibility - with respect to spiralling cost of living, inflation and creating effective access to food for the poor. This has contributed to large numbers being pushed into the vortex of poverty even if they were not 'born poor'. It is also further worsening the conditions of those who fall in the category of poor.
