Spit,
on the
thread, as
they worked,
not so long ago,
in a Bombay textile-
-mill's dept of weaving,
would still force the upper
caste workers to wholly ban
SC workers, 'coz contact with
their spit would be sinning, so SCs
were kept only in the low-paid dept of
spinning, just so they would never be their
immediate factory-floor neighbour. 'Caste is a
division of labourers,' Bhim said, 'not just of labour.'
