Seventeen years later after their country passed a law making the health-threatening occupation illegal, some 1.3 million Indians still earn a living by performing the degrading and dangerous job of cleaning up human excrement by hand. Manual scavenging entails cleaning latrines and carcasses of humans and animals with bare hands. The United Nations Commission on Human Rights has described it as the most indecent form of work.
