This haven for kabadiwalas waits for acceptance, facilities 16.11.2014 Deccan Herald - New Delhi
Once you leave Adarsh Nagar Metro station and walk towards 'C' Block of Jahangirpuri you step into a new world. A haven for kabadiwalas where they live, eat, drink and sleep on the roadside. An outsider will take a while to become acclimatised to the place. Since 1970s, Islam Baba, 72-year-old, has had his spot blocked on a road leading to 'C' Block. "I have been living here since early 70s. We used to live in Wazirpur when we were asked to shift to a resettlement colony in Jahangirpuri around 1974. We are kabbadiwalas and we have been into this business for many generations," he adds. Today also Islam starts his day early morning in search of waste to sell and make a living. "I start my day at 6 am and in summer I start with the break of dawn. Morning hours are crucial for us, we make 30 to 40 per cent of our earnings during that time. And at least one person from every family in 'C' Block leaves home early morning to collect waste," he says. The old man says that his son has his own shanty on the ...

Scared of abuse, life is not easy for street children 21.10.2014 Asian Age: Delhi
Even though facts and figures are the essence of the issue of child labour in India, it is important to get in touch with the ground reality to understand the apathy that street children face. Studies have found that one out of five children, employed illegally, is a rag picker. The same studies indicate that two out of five children are roped in by placement agencies as domestic labour. Another avenues which involve child labour are segregation and dismantling of e-waste. This newspaper explored the lives of three children who battle for survival every day in Delhi. Ragi, a nine-year-old boy lives with his best friends close to the dumps in South Delhi’s Nizamuddin area. He works for more than 12 hours a day. Life is not easy for Ragi and his friends. They spend most of the day on heaps of waste material dumped by the city. Ragi and his friends say that working as rag pickers has taught them a lot. “Yahan sab se darna padta hai, bade ladke nasha karke hume pareshaan karte hai,” says Karmi. While these ...

Social research 20.10.2014 DNA: Urban Tales
Though two thirds of India's population resides in villages, urban areas are preferred while setting economic, social and political agendas. "People think of a village as a homogenous entity where people have similar levels of prosperity or poverty, which is not true," says R Ramakumar, professor, Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS). Ramakumar has worked on several research projects that focus on rural transformation. One such project looked at the long term agrarian transformation of villages in Maharashtra in term of factors like land, assets, caste relations and housing. "Land ownership patters have changed significantly over the last 50 years. While the people who owned land in the past have increased their share, the real losers have been the Dalits and Other Backward Classes (OBC)," says Ramakumar. The increase in mechanisation has affected employment, especially among men resulting an increase in the percentage of women agricultural labourers. "About 15-20 per cent of farmers in the state ...
