Women, in both rural and urban India are the most affected by this ‘masterstroke’ of Mr. Modi. More than 80% of women still remain outside the banking system in the new digital India yet many of them manage to save some cash for the day to day requirements of their households. It is a tragedy that this money, saved by the women, have become the target of demonetization.

This Episode is about the Koli fisherwomen of Mumbai who are bearing the brunt of this sudden demonetization. They are highly disillusioned by the government who comes begging to them for votes, but ends up protecting the rich. But when the poor needs the government, why don’t they listen?
