There is also the problem of garnering Rs 900 every twenty days or so. Since Bhil homes have a lot of cooking to do, a cylinder lasts only about twenty days. Time and labour expended by women for home work like fetching water and fuel wood have no monetary value and so they are "free" as compared to cash which has to be earned through labour for money by both men and women. Thus, even if women have found cooking on gas stoves a relief, they find it easier to collect fire wood and suffer the smoke and heat of wood stoves rather than spend their hard earned money on gas refills.
So the old malevolent combination of patriarchy and poverty has put paid to the Ujjwala scheme in the Bhil homeland where mostly the gas stoves and empty cylinders are lying idle except for a few homes which have sufficient money incomes and assertive women to get the refills done. So the cooking gas fires that the Prime Minister so enthusiastically lit are extinguished for now in the Bhil homeland!!
