Mehnat Manzil-Museum of Work in Ahmedabad

Fascinating new museum in Ahmedabad.

Prof Jeemol Unni of Ahmedabad Universoty reviews the museum.

Mehnat Manzil is an unique museum that celebrates the life of people who undertake informal work. They form nearly 80 percent of the work force in India and many South Asian countries. By a rough estimate they contribute more than half of the national income of these countries. Yet, they are the most ignored, unsung and nearly invisible segment of the population. 

Lots of pictures as well…
