As of 2005, India employs 6.76 lakh manual scavengers in 96 lakh dry latrines, even though the practice was constitutionally banned in 1993. In Andhra Pradesh, home to over two lakh dry latrines, the Safai Karamchari Andolan led by Bezwada Wilson launched a demolition drive in 2004, demolishing the foundations of their indignity. This book documents the efforts of the SKA and offers a historical understanding of the problem of manual scavenging.
