‘Kachrawalas’, or Garbage Men plays a vital role in our lives, but what do we do instead; give them one of the lowest dignities in the society. Well, during scolding them and considering them inferior, we simply forget that we won’t be able to live in a polluted country like India without them. Today, I just came across a short story or passage via one of India’s leading publishing, The Logical Indian, which will definitely leave out an important lesson over you, and you gotta agree, it has a fact:
Little girl: Why do we call the man who picks up garbage bag from our home everyday as kachrawala (garbage man)?
Mother: Because he collects kachra (garbage)!
Little girl: How come he is kachrawala (garbage man). He collects garbage and keeps the environment clean. He should be called safaiwala (cleanliness man) and it is we who spread more garbage so we should be called kachrawala (garbage man).
How many of us recognized that!
