LET’S SPARE A THOUGHT FOR THE UN­DER­PRIV­I­LEGED

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - - YOURSPACE -

For­tu­nately for me, I mostly work from home and I am saved the tor­ture of be­ing stuck in traf­fic for hours on end.

How­ever, I am con­cerned about the daily bread earn­ers, the sales­man, the cart-pullers, stall own­ers and the ubiq­ui­tous post­man who, come rain or shine have to bear the brunt of the hot sun. Let us do our bit to help those in need.

Keep a cool glass of wa­ter ready for the work­ers toil­ing away in the sun out­side your house or of­fer a ride to some­one walk­ing in the swel­ter­ing heat. Of­fice go­ers too face in­con­ve­niences but most of them have the cool com­forts of an air-con­di­tioned of­fice to look for­ward to, af­ter a long com­mute.

Nonethe­less, this is the price that we all have to pay for our fol­lies. It’s time that we elect rep­re­sen­ta­tives who have bet­ter fore­sight and have a vi­sion for the city rather than crib about the non-ex­is­tent in­fra­struc­ture.
