Mmmhhh, how tasty…

We talk about the casts a lot but we don’t know much about it.


This is how I discovered this charming community of shit pickers with bare hands: the manual scavengers of Vidisha - 15.12.2010.pdf. Their job: go to people’s places, manually scavenge and bring the pot outside the house, with the shit sometimes dripping.

This has been banned by the law but it is still practiced. Some people do it even by choice, or at least be fear of being “mocked”.


This brings us back to the Middle-Age in France. After all, we invented the chamber pot!! But we stopped using it somewhere in the 20th century… (when we became “conquering bourgeois” who made natural needs disgusting).
