If there is one thing you will read today, let it be this interview of Bezwada Wilson by Vidya Subrahmaniam of The Hindu Center in The Wire. Bezwada Wilson and Vidya Subrahmaniam  discuss some of rice's sanitation research, but more importantly, Bezwada Wilson describes the changes he would have liked to see before, or along with the government's 'cleaning frenzy' and 'toilet construction spree', as well as the non-implementation of the 'Prohibition Of Employment As Manual Scavengers And Their Rehabilitation Act, 2013'.
