29 mins/English/2005

80 % of rural women are engaged in livelihoods depended on natural resources in India. This intense relationship, throws up a whole range of issues and questions. Does the policy recognize this intensity? Do we all at large value the knowledge systems, which may have developed among these women? How have women coped with coercion from state in their accessing of natural resources?

This film tries to explore these questions through four focused engagements. This film was supported by UNDP and worked on for one and a half years, Completed in May 2005.
