Varanas (urban area) and Varanasi Cantonment (rural area) is in Uttar Pradesh, the one of the largest, patriarchal, caste-conscious and corrupt states in India. Therefore women and children are unprotected and at risk, more prone to disease, premature deaths, malnutrition and poverty. This is a short video portraying the women and children I encountered on my visit to Varanasi in 2014.
