About Book:

This book is the result of twenty years of study, research and fieldwork by the author who is a Gandhian with long years in social service. It is a seminal piece of work on scavenging that extensively discusses its sources, history and geographical spread.

The social inequity of the system has always concerned Dr Bindeshwar Pathak who joined Gandhiji's movement for the liberation of scavengers soon after his education.

Road to Freedom is a holistic approach to the problem of scavenging aimed at a total liquidation of the system.
