Every day, the sewers of Mumbai create enough waste to fill 4500 Olympic swimming pools. That’s a whole lot of crap. Despite the fact that there are a lot of modern comforts and technology in Mumbai, for some reason the sewage system is massively outdated and is still cleaned by hand, so every day a bunch of guys strap on some helmets and head down into a sea of shit.
Here’s a short documentary about their lives. Although the narrator is really crap and has a really annoying voice, the video itself has some great footage and is a real insight into how shitty and dangerous these guys’ lives are. Hopefully this movie will raise awareness about the issue and make some strides to actually sorting out their stupid sewage system.
