Unsung heroes in our society - IIn our daily lives, for most of us, these people exist in the fringes of our vision and minds. Let's have a look at some of them.
The hawkers on the move, these are people with a small pushcart, a rusty cycle or an old rickshaw or many with a big basket on their heads. Rain or shine, summer or winter, they patiently move around neighbourhoods selling their wares. The vegetable vendor, the tender coconut seller, the laundry man who comes in the mornings to iron clothes and leave late in the evenings.
These are people who could be called as employees or workforce of the unorganised sector. There is no guarantee of a fixed income, no pension or health cover, no paid leave, no fixed business location and above all, not a permanent job.
These are people whom we interact and most of us forget. Some of us tend to haggle and bargain a couple of rupees which is not important to us but makes a difference for them. Yet, with all the hardships, they carry on with their daily work and in their own little ways, make our day to day lives easier.
