The book provides thoughtful insights into many dimensions of the social evil of bonded labour. [It] is a great eye-opener for economists, leaders and policy-makers who have become complacent because of their satisfaction with India’s growth story…The author has done a brilliant work by agitating the consciousness of all sensitive human beings in our society…this book draws the attention of those who matter and acts as a ray of hope for economically exploited helpless and weaker sections of society.
Combining humanist sensitivity with the diligence of a committed public servant, and a careful reading of the law, [Mishra’s] book is an encyclopaedic record of labour unfreedoms, past and present. [The author] traces ancient roots to contemporary forms of bonded labour in India... [He] unravels the riddle of the perpetuation of unfree labour in free India.
