 DESCRIPTION
spacer
The present study is a humble attempt to understand and explain the Untouchability and social mobility among the scavengers of Jammu city. In India today, scavengers and sweepers still carry out the basic sanitary services in cities and towns. While many are employed by local urban authorities to clean the sewers and sweep the streets, a significant number still work in their traditional occupation. This means the scavengers are still cleaning latrines by hand and carrying night soil in baskets on their heads. As their occupation renders them permanently polluted, according to Hindu society, scavengers are treated as untouchable, even by other untouchable castes. The book highlights the conditions that this community faces and experiences, how they deal with the experience of untouchability and what has been the mobility pattern given the limited opportunities this community has.
