The daughters of Durga
In the cosmopolitan city of Mumbai, a land of hope and dreams, a new life is seeked by millions of Indians. While known as ‘the gold mine’, 60% of them end up living in slums. However, everything becomes possible here. Even women, born under the strict canons of Indian society, are able to lead independent lives in Mumbai. ‘The daughters of Durga’ is an amalgam of stories of the courage shown by Indian women in various situations, drawn from the life’s testimony of women leading unconventional lives, as well as those aspiring to take hold of their own lives, and all set to the backdrop of a Bollywoodian Mumbai as a paradigm of this land of hope and dreams.
