December , 2015
The bangles that pregnant women in Ghazipur district of Eastern Uttar Pradesh wear are unique, the colours denote their health status and compliance to health instructions
Eastern Uttar Pradesh initiative
Underdevelopment, poor infrastructure and limited natural resources place Eastern Uttar Pradesh low on the development index. The predominantly rural population depends on agriculture for subsistence, but erratic irrigation due to alternating floods and droughts, and exploitative market systems make agriculture a low-profitable venture. Oppressive social systems add to the factors that have stymied development in the region.
