Gulab’s classmates call her ‘Stinky Gulab’, and it’s not because she smells. Her father is a manual scavenger — he is made to clean drains and gutters with his bare hands, even today! “Why do you do it?!” asks Gulab angrily. With a determination to help him, and a little help from science, she takes the first bold step towards change. A narrative on the lives of sanitation workers.
