Indian society is divided into thousands of castes, and at the bottom of the social ladder are an estimated 200 million 'untouchables' or dalits. Dalits are normally confined to the most menial of jobs in Indian society, and this woman is pictured in the public lavatories that she cleans every day, with a broom and her bare hands.
