Instagram Helps Hide the Harsh Reality of Life in India


Whilst Instagram has helped us all see more of the world, it’s also changed the way we view it in more ways than one. Continuing on from our recent story that revealed what was really happening behind-the-scenes of your favorite Instagram accounts, comes the eye-opening series ‘Broken India’.


In direct opposition to the constantly referenced, celebrated and promoted trend of “Beautiful India”, the series takes a far more sobering look at life in one of the most populated and chaotic countries on the planet.


Its creators hope these images will help kickstart a national debate on how India can address its complex issues of inequality, poor infrastructure and pollution.


‘Broken India’ is a fascinating yet harsh reality check for all concerned.
