TRASH!

Velu did not move. He hadn’t come here to dig through smelly garbage bins.
Jaya poked at him with her stick. “Don’t just stand there posing. Big hero!” she shouted. “Who filled your stomach today?”
Velu scratched his head and sighed. I’ll do it for now, he thought, until I find a better job.

Velu runs away from his village to Chennai. He begins to work with Jaya, a sharp ragpicker child. Life on the streets is difficult and frightening. Jam Bazaar Jaggu, the crafty Ruler of Rubbish and Dorai, the sinister moneylender add to Velu’s problems…

Trash! also has facts and arguments which help you think about:

  • Child labour
  •  Lifestyles and waste
  • Ragpicking
  • Schools for working children
