The first four photographs are from a health centre running since the past 9 years in Baramulla in Jammu and Kashmir, India one of the most sensitive states in India. This health centre is mostly run by women staff members working with very basic amenities and old medical equipments.
The next ten photographs are of the waste picking community in New Delhi. Waste picking is not an officially recognized profession hence waste pickers are not entitled to any benefits or social security. Waste picking is the fourth largest occupation for street children in Delhi. Women health too is a major cause of concern. Even though they play a significant role in the process of waste disposal, issues related to their health and livelihood, remain un-addressed.
The last three photographs are of women victims of armed conflict in three states located in the North east of India, namely Assam and Manipur. Various ideologies have given birth to insurgent violence in Northeast India, which have been based on a common demand for sovereignty, which has been responded by state military action.
