    • RAG PICKERS
      • An essential component in the functioning of the city
      • Unrecognized sector, but highly organized and a major contributor for recycling waste
      • Often harassed by people and required space for them to operate is not provided
      • Often children are drawn into it due to its unskilled nature
      • Current working pattern is susceptible to high health risks
      • Pragmatic collection methods lead to environmental hazards (e.g segregation of e-waste)
    • Thank you Rag pickers a disconnected entity of the city, still so connected…. Photo Source : Wikipedia
