Underexposed: Lights in Dark Spaces
by Kajal Nisha Patel
(a working title...)
Dedicated to the self-employed ragpicker women of Ramapir Tekra slum in Ahmedabad.
They leave their homes at 5am - some of whom return at 4pm to bring home a meagre 60rupees. They will collect anything from Newspapers, water pouches, glass & cardboard.
These are strong, independent, progressive women..though overlooked in society. They play a huge role in keeping the streets of Ahmedabad clean. Many are the sole income generators...many of them widows...
