Out of 72% of India's rural population only 2% has access to the internet. For Community correspondents like Rohini, who need to access the internet on a regular basis, things continue to be difficult. Whenever she needs to use the net, she travels from Valhe to the neighbouring town of Jejuri, where there is a cyber café.
