The book also unravels the workings of sulabh’s sanitation movement, the sociology of sanitation, action sociology, global challenges of sanitation and how Sulabh has gone about accomplishing a drastic change in society. The life of Dr pathak as a great humanitarian and his new philosophy of ‘temple of gratitude’ holds important lessons for healthcare providers, social workers, sanitation personnel, students, teachers and researchers.
