Abstract: The actual living conditions of the textile workers were horrible. The insanitary surroundings, the stinking smell in the air around, the dark and dingy rooms with terrible congestion, the eight of the unoared for children roaming about in the streets gave one the impression that here is a place where human beings live like herds of cattle in distress. What is the reason for such a state of affairs? Among other factors, it is due to the lack of education on the part of the workers. The workers in India are unorganised; they are not conscious of their classy, their economic and social conditions. The employers of labour are indifferent to the much desired and much needed welfare of their employees. While education is a very important factor in the healthy living of the workers, it in ignored both by the employers and the workers alike. Although they are conscious of the importance of education in the life and living conditions of labour, they have so far done very little for the education of the working class. For this reason, besides others, there are unhealthy living conditions of the workers and poor production in quality as well as quantity. This was my first observation of the worker's home and family life, and it was only this that made me take up the study of Worker's Education in Bombay Textile Mills. For the purpose of observation, I chose five textile mills, namely, The Khatau Mills, The Elphinstone Mills, The Crown Mills, The Hindustan Mills, and the Western India Mills. The area of enquiry is limited to two hundred and forty eight workers. The approach to the subject in direct and is based on 'interviews'.
