A couple of days ago. A sunny late morning. A city groaning and bursting at it’s seams.
As usual, I was traveling in my red limousine. Close to my destination, the bus stopped at the red signal. Across the road, an Indian handcart (similar to the picture) had stopped in it’s tracks with one side down groaning with the load of 20 cartons ( I counted ) . 6 men were at their wit’s end on how to carry on their journey, with a traffic cop standing next to them while the traffic flowed around them. Well, I couldn’t see how they managed to balance the handcart since my bus went towards my destination when the signal was a happy green.
It just makes me wonder why humans have to earn their daily wages in this manner. Despite, the advance of technology , people still labour like this . Are we progressing or regressing. ?. Are we human or a slave to our routine. Watch, look and move on. Does this happen only in India ?
