About the Book

This book is the result of twenty years of study, research and fieldwork by the author who is a Gandhian with long years in social service. It is a seminal piece of work on scavenging which extensively discusses its sources, history and geographical spread.

The social inequity of the system has always concerned Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak who joined Gandhiji's movement for the liberation of scavengers soon after his education. He suggests solutions based on his experience of having redeemed and resettled more than 25,000 scavengers. The source material of the book is the author's work experience as well as a deep study of all available documents on scavenging.

Road to Freedom is a holistic approach to the problem of scavenging, aimed at a total liquidation of the system. The author seeks to give scavengers new life and hope by providing a technology which has been accepted even by UN bodies-an effective low cost and appropriate alternative to scavenging.
