Pourakarmikas are Bangalore (Karnataka – India) based men and women who clear different kinds of garbage, from food waste to discarded cell phones, from the city’s streets.

Pourakarmikas are fighting for a life with dignity. On 8th March 2017, on International women’s Day they decided to protest at the BBMP head Office. Hidden Pockets joined them.

I want to thank the Facebook page ” Pourakarmikas Demand their Rights ” for providing us with useful content.
