Choices sereis - Gurjarvani

Dear friends,
There are a number of videos uploaded in the Choices Playlist  on our Youtube channel.
These stories done from 1990 to 2000 are open-ended to make the young people reflect on their own life situation and make appropriate decisions, which may lead them to genuinely happy life. These videos were distributed all over India. They were dubbed into Hindi and subtitled in English, so that they can be used 
by anybody who knows Hindi / English. We hope many will use them now since they are on 

Thanks a lot,
Devasia m.
