Down the Drain: A participatory video by sewage workers of Delhi

About a week after two men, one a sewage worker and the other a fruit seller, were choked to death while cleaning a manhole in Noida, three other sewage workers face the same fate in Chennai and Mysore. Compensation and a couple of news reports later, the plight of their families as well as that of thousands of others who face an uncertain life remain in oblivion to the majority.

Down the Drain, a participatory video made by sewage workers in Delhi, is an account of their lives, problems and demands.

Do share your views on what an accountable state and a conscious people can and must do.
