For all the curses Indian roads beget,
One glance at the men and women who make the roads (Indian roads)
would hang a different perspective.
In heat and rain they toil and slog
With no protection from sun, rain, wind and dust.
Caps, sunglasses, raincoats...... you need your true companions.
Leave the lads in the heat and heap of dust
Eat food in the heat and heap of dust.
Sweat, blood and nerves- 6o:40::men:women is the moolah they make.
A million thankless jobs done and a silent blogpost written in honour of them-
one they would never see, hear or know about.
(Irony- sunglasses donned on those in air conditioned cars, cocooned in
moderated, dust-free cool temps)
