Capitalism at its most brutal is a familiar story in Central Asia, and in this story, set in the lovely but decaying Indian city of Lucknow, it takes the form of wholesalers paying the women who weave a colorful folk design in fabric less than it costs for them to support themselves. In this story, Anjuman supplements the charity she receives from her relatives with the pay she gets for her weaving work. However, a local woman doctor urges her to organize the weavers for a better deal, and this is exactly what the plucky young woman does.
