Some of the drainage lines in Mumbai are deep enough to accommodate a double-decker bus! And once inside, there is nothing but darkness. The worker is totally cut off from the world above. Anything could happen to him - he could pass out from inhaling some toxic gas, or slip in the slime and lose consciousness, or be carried away in the rush of water and waste. Yes, it is true; this work requires no special skills - just a pair of arms and legs and the courage to descend into hell!!! (Photo by: Sudharak Olwe)
