Weight in the basket is not reduced so the strength to carry is reduced!In Mathematics, we have learnt- if the number of workers is more, the volume of work to be done in less number of days. That means both the number of workers and the number of days are inversely proportional to each other. The Covid'19 has made the formula to be more realistic to those people who depend on their daily earnings and made their lives more miserable.
A WhatsApp picture message was so pathethic with a visual that a thin old woman wearing a mask was sitting under hot Sun on the side of the lane of a main road keeping her chin with bowed head on her knees with a basketful of lemons on her side. It clearly appeared that she had no business for the complete half-day yet hopeful of selling them and waiting for the customers.
But some people are so scared and they prefer to order lemons online through big basket or so. Nothing wrong in it if someone takes extra precaution. But talking about those people who line up for hours to purchase liqour and those who are enthusiastic and flock together to purchase meat, chicken and fish won't turn to such people and won't be sympathetic towards such humanbeings. If someone turns up, he would bargain and try to exploit her inability to sell them out. This is happening everywhere. It's our weakness to bargain where there is no fixed price and not a standard shop. But be human, don't bargain and encourage such people. After all, they are not begging but trying to live on their own with dignity.
Let the weight of basket come down while she returns to her home without reducing her strength!
