Let's Talk About CleanIndia’s Unspeakable Secret

Assa Doron and Robin Jeffrey, The Wire, May 24, 2018 



InIndia, caste and practices related to caste are inescapable in thewaste-management conundrum.


There’sa wonderful book called Ask the Fellows Who Cut the Hay aboutEngland in bygone days when it was still heavily rural and agricultural labourwas the life of thousands of people.


The recent release of the Swachh Survekshan rankings of India’s cleanest citiessuggests someone should write a book called Ask the People Who Pick Up the Waste.(Bhasha Singh’s Unseen, published by Penguin in 2014, comesclose).

My final words of advice to you are educate, agitate and organize; have faith in yourself. With justice on our side I do not see how we can lose our battle. The battle to me is a matter of joy. The battle is in the fullest sense spiritual. There is nothing material or social in it. For ours is a battle not for wealth or for power. It is battle for freedom. It is the battle of reclamation of human personality.
