“The weather is so beautiful and cool since yesterday that I wish to sleep tight the whole day. But what to do, I just can’t sit at home without doing work. Most people who are skilled and educated may opt to work from home on such rainy days. But for people like us, the choice is between hunger and hard work.
There is no fixed price as such when it comes to my income. It all depends on how much the customer is willing to pay. Earlier, I used to ferry passengers but now I have remodeled my cycle rickshaw and am using it for the transportation of goods to people’s homes and small shops.
So rain or shine. It doesn’t matter to me. Agar kaam milti hai toh sachche dil se mehnat karta hoon. Nahi toh Nampally aake Lata Ji aur Kishore Kumar saab ka gaane sunke shaam ko ghar chala jata hoon.”
