“Whenever I can, I sit with my children and read out the news to them. It gets difficult to make time for children when both parents work multiple jobs. I can’t leave them alone in the house either, as the neighborhood is not safe. So I bring them here, to my road-side puncture repair stand after school and manage to spend the evening with them, before I take them back home for dinner. They play around as they strike conversation with me, asking me about my day and telling me about theirs, as I continue to finish whatever little work I find.
My wife and I work hard to make ends meet, but more importantly for our children to do well. She’s a graduate, but works as a security personnel because she couldn’t find a skilled job. I shuffle between delivering goods for a small Kirana Store, riding a rickshaw and fixing punctures. We have big aspirations for our children. Not in terms of money, but in terms of respect and happiness. We want them to study well and have respectable government jobs, even if they’re in small positions. We’ve struggled too hard from the beginning, all through our childhood and even to this day. We feel bad about not being able to educate our children in big, English – Speaking Private schools and promise them flowery futures. But we give them all the moral lessons and encouragement we can. They’ve never disappointed us so far and I’m sure they will not in the future either!”
