Asthi basically portrayals about the life of factory employees in chemical industries. More over Asthi discusses two aspects. 1) The exploitation of the labour community by the corporates 2) The negligence of life. Labour exploitation is work obtained from a person under threat that is real or perceived and which the person has not offered themselves voluntarily. Labour exploitation is also often an element of human trafficking. Human trafficking is the combination of movement or harbouring a person; use of deception or coercion; and placement into situations of exploitation. Any and all forms of exploitation are an international criminal offence. Nowadays exploitation occurs in third world countries and countries that experience economic situations that have resulted in a portion of a worker’s output being confiscated from him/her and used to support a wealthy and parasitic ruling class.Exploitative labour can be seen in several different forms, including forced labour, where employees take advantages of gaps in legislation to exploit vulnerable workers, bonded labour, also referred to as debt bondage, where a person has to work to pay back an inherited debt and lastly, involuntary domestic servitude, which occurs when a domestic worker becomes ensnared in an exploitative situation from which they are unable to escape. The rice of communism brought brought a control over this exploitation.
