In terms of manual scavenging,

Gujarat is as yellow as Kerala is in this map !!!

Vow !

Which means that the number of manual scavengers is very low in Gujarat !

But.......like Kerala, does it mean that open defecation is absent in Gujarat ??

As per the NSSO survey in 2015, 49 % (nearly half) of the entire population of Gujarat defecates in the open !

Whereas just 1.4 % of the total Kerala population does so !

If a similar map were to be drawn about open defecation, Gujarat would be dark red in colour compared to very pale yellow for Kerala !

Which further means that Gujaratis defecate and leave their excreta in the open for the sun, rain and wind to dispose it off !

We need to employ modern technology to eliminate the scourge. The primary reason being unnecessary healthy hazard linked to the profession. Wherever the practice is prevalent proper study should be made to find out the reason for the prevalence of the condition and necessary modernization shall be encouraged.

Yes it is really a national shame as well as a big shame on humanity. We have no right to show or called our-selves advanced in science and technology till we totally demolish such kind of activities.

Yes national shame

Its really a national shame that we still have manual scavenging and that too caste based and then Modi and team and for that matter much of Indians take pride in Swach Bharat. Unless and until we do not start from scratch, nothing can be achieved. The real base and start of Swach Bharat should be to remove manual scavenging and deploy machines and people equipped with full gear and medical care to get those things done. And then remove the caste based identity of these scavengers and keep it as a regular employment. Only after that can we think of the next step of toilet, swach bharat etc. Its a shame that inspite of Modi and Govt. earning so much thro' the Swach Bharat tax, they are not able to get machines for scavenging and abolish/ remove manual work or atleast give them the best gear and protection. These are things for which alternative has to be found if we want India towards development. Why has the PM, CMs, the Ministers and Ambassadors not started their campaign in scavenging and take photographs along with those manual scanvengers. That would have been the real inspiration.
