Paanai Seivom, Payir Seivom: Nam Kaalatthil Uzhaippin Madippu (Tamil)

Author : Kancha Ilaiah
Illustrator : Durgabai Vyam

Tackling troubling ‘taboo’ topics such as caste, race, and class, the book uses a creative and analytical approach to get young people to rethink disdain for manual labour. It also throws light on the social, economic and historic aspects of the lives of manual labourers, and highlights the science and art of their skills. This Tamil edition of Professor Kancha Iliah’s seminal work, Turning the Pot, Tilling the Land: Dignity of labour in our times (Navayana Publishing) marks a milestone in Tamil publishing for children.
