Allahabad: It's the beginning of a new tradition at the ghats of the Ganga. Around 100 manual scavengers from Rajasthan are taking a dip in its holy waters, washing away centuries of discrimination. Among them is 35-year-old Usha Chomar. As she offers her prayers to the mighty river, she says she was at first hesitant to come here. 'On my way here, I was a bit hesitant, a bit embarrassed. I wondered if I would be allowed to bathe here. But when I came here, I saw that all the people were in it together. They were all one. They were all bathing, praying together. I liked it a lot,' she says.
