SHIVANGAON (NAGPUR): The silence resembled a pall of gloom and a feeling of helplessness, as if someone was dead in the family.

Over 200 women were sobbing as 65 year-old Tursabai Gaikwad sat with her head tonsured. With a grim face, she soon broke into tears too. Even the men who consoled her broke down, including the tough looking Baba Dawre, who has been leading the protest against the Cargo hub project.
