Why there should be, it is albeit a job, upcorse menial but if I use suitable implements, nothing wrong and a dignity of labour; that too in a country of thugs, cheats, corrupt and debaucherers in majority that have no shame!

Robots to replace manual scavenging

A Kerala start up is developing a robot named "Bandicoot" for cleaning sewer lines. Kerala govt is supporting them with the aim to totally eradicate 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 !

That is Gujarat model development for you !

Do you mean to believe this data. If there is no rcruitment in scavenging in municipal/punchayat offices and construction of dry latrines are not done, it would be zero.

The states which have more number of villages - living in poverty - lesser knowledge in hygiene used to have more.

Madarchd media inciting unwanted sentiments and feelings. Raking up issues.

Why is it a national shame ?

Then nurses working in hospitals, people working in disabled person wards and dairy farms, chicken farms everything is a national shame ?

Media is a national shame in India.
