Daksha is a simple cook working in one of Khandivali’s high rise buildings. For a rather small salary she walks about 30 minutes from her hut through the jungle. Then she walks back into the forest, picks up her son to take him to school, comes back home again to do the house work and in the afternoon she goes again to work and picks up her son from school. Every day she walks 3 hours and each time on her way she feels scared as she had been robbed already twice.

Daksha is one of the unknown heroins of Mumbai without whom the city could not work.
