The plight of wildwood as reflected in Deepa Mehta’s water
The purpose of this study was to show us that widows are much more than victims. They are birth givers and heads of house. Widows of all the ages should be treated as equal citizens. They are absent in factual research and statistics, not noticed by researchers, neglected by authorities and overlooked by society organizations. The situation of widows is invisible. Their abuse constitutes one of the most serious violations of human rights and obstacles to development. Millions of the widows live and die in extreme poverty, exclusion, assault, homelessness, health risks and discrimination in law and traditions. The research is an effort to throw light on the harassing miseries and hardships faced by such widows in India and especially in Varanasi with reference to the movie'' Water” which aims at bringing the issue in the limelight to improve the situation.
