Kamlesh Kumari (3rd from right), 28, reads this week's Khabar Lahariya newspaper out loud to her whole family and illiterate friends at her house in a village in Chitrakoot, Uttar Pradesh, India on 5th December 2012. Kamlesh, a mother of 2, is a farmer, earning about 20000 rupees of sales per annum from her 2 acre farm. She dreams of becoming a journalist for Khabar Lahariya but is not able to apply since the newspaper only takes one reporter in each area, and Sunita is already working in the area.
