SORT BY Relevancy
Gentle World Cafe host, Suparna Malhotra, talks with Elisa Paloschi, about her film.
Driving with Selvi is a documentary film that tells the story of a remarkable young woman who defies strict patriarchal traditions and escapes a child marriage to become South India’s first female taxi driver.
We first meet 18-year-old Selvi at a girls’ shelter in 2004 - timid, soft-spoken, a fresh runaway from a violent past and the victim of a life set against her.
Over the 10 years filmed, we see a remarkable transformation as Selvi finds her voice and refuses to surrender to societal expectations – learning to drive, starting her own taxi company and working on the front lines of reproductive health education.
Instead of adhering to the patriarchal codes that oppress and restrict women, Selvi’s bold determination defies and challenges them. Will she hold steadfast on her road to economic empowerment? Will she remarry? After being unwanted and abused by her own mother, will she be able to break the vicious cycle of devaluing girls so prevalent in her society?
This character-driven story highlights the challenges that the disempowered female population in India face. While the film offers a glimpse into a world of poverty, prejudice and desperate circumstances, it shatters stereotypes as Selvi redefines herself from victim to survivor.
Through Selvi’s eyes, the audience is taken on an intimate journey, and perhaps even a familiar one, of healing, overcoming obstacles, and fulfilling dreams. Throughout this journey, it is Selvi’s unwavering spirit that shines through. Her refusal to surrender offers inspiration, hope and the clear message that anything is possible.

Distracted driving is becoming more of a challenge. With all the things that contend with our time, it's easy to get distracted while on the road. But what is distracted driving? Texting, talking on the phone and basically doing anything that keeps you from focusing on the road is considered distracted driving. Jana and Sheronde discuss the topic of distracted driving on this week's episode of Auto Estrogen Live!
Temptation is something we all face as Christians, no matter how long we have been following Christ. There are a few practical things, however, that we can do to grow stronger and smarter in our struggle against sin.
Strength is found in God’s Word, the Bible. In fact, there’s inherent power in the Word. In John 6:63 (NKJV), Jesus said, “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.”
Meditating on the Word feeds life to your spirit. And when you’re strong enough spiritually, you can do what God wants you to do, no matter what pressure the flesh is putting on you. So whatever the temptation is that you’re facing, be encouraged. You can resist it. You can have the self-control you need, by God’s grace, to say, “I’m going to do what God wants. I’m led by His Spirit and living His great plan for my life!”
ROMANS 8: 28-30 GOD IS AT WORK IN OUR LIVES.
vs. 28. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
vs. 29. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
vs. 30. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
vs. 31. What shall we say to these things ? If God be for us who can be against us ?
vs. 32. He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also free give us all things ?
vs. 33. Who shall lay anything to the charge of God's elect ? It is God that justifieth.
vs. 34. Who is he that condemneth ? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
vs. 35. Who shall seperate us from the love of Christ ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword ?
vs. 37. Nay in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
vs. 38. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
vs. 39. Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
