The official song of the upcoming documentary film Kakkoos which is a film on manual scavengers was released on Youtube yesterday. The film has been directed by Divya Bharathi. This is a powerful song that captures the shameful practice of manual scavenging that is still prevalent in India, a profession that has been primarily carried out by Dalits and pushed down by the caste hierarchy in Hindu society. We have jotted down the English lyrics of the song that appear in the subtitles below the video.
