As I am a daily wager, every single day of my life is a struggle

"As I am a daily wager, every single day of my life is a struggle. Everything depends on what kind of work I find on a day to day basis. Sometimes I work as a tractor driver and there are times where I engage myself as a daily laborer in a construction site. There are also days where I don't find any work and have to sit idle. My work is physically challenging and the more I work the bigger amount I get to feed my family. I have been working since I was 18 and there have been some tough times that I had to go through. I always need to work under someone else and follow their strict instructions. Things are quite tough now as we are a family of four and I am the sole bread earner who comes out at 9 am and slogs himself till the 6 in the evening. On the very few days I get an off, I rest at home and binge on the home cooked non-veg which my wife cooks. But I always pray that I find work continuously even in this monsoon season, so that my bread and butter is earned without any hiccups.” #Hyderabad #HumansOfHyderabad
