The Merry Maidens of Shillong: Turning Garbage to Gold 9.7.2017 Meghalaya Times

Staff Reporter
SHILLONG, July 09: While elsewhere the name Merry Maidens is associated to the sad tale of 19 girls turned into stone for dancing on the Sabbath during the Neolithic era, in Meghalaya the name Merry Maidens has altogether a different narrative to it which starts from rags and heads towards riches.
The Merry maidens of Shillong are not the high and mighty and no - they don’t belong to the world of glamour or music. They are a group of twenty eight woman rag pickers from the landfill area of the city who were selected, trained and allowed to secure a future not just for them but for generations to come. And their area of operations is anybody’s guess- Marten.
