Like the adivasi (indigenous person) preparing the getti roots for cooking in Palamau, Jharkhand. Fetching these in the drought period is not easy. She has spent most of her morning in the forest doing that. She’s already lost a great deal of time fetching water, but will probably have to make another trip for more. While doing these chores, she could cross paths with a wild animal in the Balumath woods around her village.
The women eat last and least, and get very little rest. So these energy-sapping routines devastate their health.
