Holding fort in Khagaria

Photographed  5.2.2010 in Dahma Khairi Kutaha, Khagaria district. “In the absence of a male head of household, a woman residing in the flood prone areas have to look after children, livestock, household chores, agriculture and much more, hardly leaving time to care for herself. The absence of men in the region is a result of rampant migration owing to lack of livelihood opportunities largely due to floods.” Contributed by Eklavya Prasad.
