Abstract: Walking on a mountain made of waste at the Bhalswa landfill site in Delhi, Santosh – a 33-year-old safai mitra (waste picker) – is tired, and frustrated. Part of India’s mammoth unsecured, unprotected workforce, he is deeply anguished and uncertain of his future in this time of the pandemic.
