It isn't Hinkley in California and there is no Erin Brockovich who is fighting for them. In a village called Silverpuram, just about 3 km from the Sterlite plant in Tuticorin, virtually every other household has a cancer patient. Thirty one year old Ram Lakshmi's husband Murugan died of intestinal cancer three years ago. Now she struggles to make ends meet. She earns Rs. 2500 per month and supports two school going children - Tamil Selvam and Tamil Selvi. Ram Lakshmi's son dreams of being a police officer and her daughter is yet to make up her mind.
