Photo essay - Faridabad Majdoor Samachar (Faridabad Workers’ News)

Delhi, April 2015
Earlier this year I met with Sher Singh and colleagues to distribute copies of the Faridabad Majdoor Samachar. This is a selection images, from a morning in Faridabad.

"'Faridabad Majdoor Samachar' is a monthly publication in the Hindi language. In 1982, we began publishing 1,000 copies in 2 page format. In 1993 we began to publish and distribute 5,000 copies of the paper each month in Faridabad and Okhla Industrial area of Delhi. Since 2007, the number of copies has increased to 7,000 since we now also distribute the paper amongst factory workers in Udyog Vihar, Gurgaon. Between Faridabad, Okhla, and Gurgaon, there are two to two and half million factory workers."
