Through the lives of farmers, migrant labourers and activists in Marathwada and western Maharashtra, Agnihotri illuminates a series of intersecting and overlapping crises: female foeticide, sexual assault, the violence of caste, feudal labour relations, farmers’ suicides and climate change in all its manifestations.

From Vaishali, trying to rebuild her life after her husband’s suicide, to Yashwant, a dhaba owner driven to activism by his mother’s murder, Agnihotri’s indictment of Indian society is grounded in individual lives.
