These Adivasi women live close to Northern India's holy Narmada river. The construction of the controversial Sardar Sarovar Dam has driven them off their land into new settlements. Government has officially granted recompensation to the resettled families, but in fact it is reluctant to do anything. A huge non-governmental organisation - the NGO - supports the Adivasi and exerts pressure on the state. That day I took this picture (1994) I was with NGO staff at a village meeting where resettlement problems were being discussed.
