Most of use WhatsApp today and are used to being forwarded all kinds of posts. We might also do this ourselves. A huge amount of knowledge is being shared in this way today. On this table, we'll use some WhatsApp forwards examples to see how much of the history / current stories we hear are mainly told from the perspective of people with power or status. Through examples from Indian stories, we will see the unseen consequences of how a story is told: the benefits and the harms for us as individuals, as members of our communities and larger society.
Some resources we referred to when creating our activity for this table
