Abstract:

The untouchables traditionally occupied the lowest place in the caste system. Today it is illegal to discriminate against an untouchable, yet they remain at the bottom of the system. Today, caste discrimination is one of the world's biggest human rights issues. This series depicts an exposed group of people who, despite continuous degradation and persecution, continue to live their lives with dignity. The Badi women traditionally work as prostitutes. In the town of Rajapur in western Nepal, the untouchable Badis have their own neighbourhood where the women spend all day waiting for customers to come along.
