Women have been at the forefront of the struggle against the Maheshwar dam. At Pathrad, they turned out in huge numbers.
People rushed to the river to behold a massive show of strength. About 500 boats (from all the 61 villages to be affected by Maheshwar) turned up for a rally on the river banks.
These pictures hardly do justice to the show. Imagine a flotilla of 500 boats, big and small !!
People watched the rally from the river banks
