Just 80 kilometres from Mumbai, in the tribal districts of Thane, it's not just little children who are victims of hunger death; widowed and old tribal women are also in that list. Old women keep hungry so that working members of the family can eat a full meal. These women are abandoned and starved or given food only once in a few days. Every morning when 65-year-old Jatribai wakes up her battle begins, a battle with constant gnawing hunger.
