Re: A Day in the Life of an Untouchable Sweeper (Must watch if you can!!!)
Dear Mr. Naiyar, I do not know that who made the film but if you are from Dalit Community and living in India, you may understand better.
If you go in India, in most of the states manual scavenging is still going on. Congress Government made a commission called SAFAI MAZDOOR AYOG and spend more than thousand Crore rupees to stop manual scavenging and help manual scavengers to start some businesses. But you know that our system bureaucracy spoiled the policy and very few got real benefits.
Lucknow, capital of UP, in main city of Lucknow, where one Balmiki Ex-PM is living and his relatives and my relatives are still doing the same job. I cannot say more than this.
