|"The Widow Colony — India's Unsettled Settlement", borrows its name from the
settlement in Tilak Vihar, on the west-side of New Delhi, which is locally called
the Widow Colony or Vidhva Colony. The film takes the viewer to the streets of
Trilokpuri, Kalyanpuri, Himatpuri, Sultanpuri and Mongolpuri, the same localities
that suffered the major brunt of the Sikh killings in November of 1984.
Director Harpreet Kaur, uses the testimonies of the widows and subject
experts, along with images of the killings and destruction that followed after
the assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, to convey the trauma of the
widows, their battle for justice and their struggle for survival in India.
