Salt pan workers toil hard, very often at remote places. This is Kharaghoda in Surendranagar district of Ahmedabad. They are called Agarias. Most of the children of Agarias do not go to schools and suffer skin infections. Since most of them do not even wear gum- boots, their foot becomes so numb that it doesn’t burn when they are put to rest after their death. So when your taste buds are sprinkled with salt next time, think of these salt workers.
