Devki finds herself in a continuous conflict between her wish to be emancipated and the deeply-rooted traditions of Indian society. Her biggest wish is to become a taxi driver. To reach this goal, Devki has to stand up first against her father, then against her husband and at the end even against her father-in-law. Devki's story in Where to, Miss? illustrates why it is so difficult for Indian women to step out of their deep-embedded roles.
