Economic liberalisation, globalisation and growing economic power have led
to the development of rural India in the past two decades. This book
explores the various facets of rural media and integrated marketing
communication. In order to meet the formidable challenges of reaching
638,365 villages, Indian advertisers have mastered the art of the video-van
form/technology and the art of crafting messages customised to meet rural
tastes and sensibilities. The revised edition follows a 'bottom-up'
approach and presents case studies of rural markets (h√Ęts), advertising
media discourse and unique features of Indian rural advertising grounded in
Indian urban and rural multilingualism. Facts, figures, tables and analyses
have been updated and new developments and approaches to the study of
advertising and marketing (e.g. e-choupal) have been added. Both
'conventional' and 'non-conventional' media forms are accounted for in
order to provide a holistic and systematic perspective on rural advertising
and marketing media. Interviews with rural consumers and media giants
provide a first-hand look at the dynamics and complexity of Indian rural
media on one hand and the interaction of the various manifestations of
rural media with urban media on the other. The study is the first of its
kind devoted to advertising in rural India.
