Homework

It’s simply unbearably hot. You can’t really see it, but you sure can feel it. And it feels like you’re sitting in an oven with hot wind blowing at you from day to night.

“It’s very hard to work like this. It’s sweaty. Sometimes we get dizzy. Every summer I get seriously ill.” Mohammad Zakir says. But he has no choice. His family depends on him. So he cycles, earning less than 5 dollars a day.

I’ve only been walking for about ten minutes right now, and I’m already soaking. It’s hard to imagine how daily wage labors who have to work in the sun all day and don’t have access to modern xx like air conditioning, fan, and many times, even water. How they deal with it?

Most Indians live in villages, where some 300 million don’t have access to electricity. Many don’t have running water either, which means long walk in scorching heat. In rapidly expanding cities like Delhi, pollution and xx number of people only making things worse. And the worst affected are the daily wage labors toiling a way in the sun, with no labor laws barring them from doing so in such punishing temperatures.

“What can we do? We have to work to fill our stomachs. This is our karma, I guess.” He says.

India recently recorded its highest ever temperature, mercury in one town shooting up to 51 degree Celsius or 124 degrees Fahrenheit. Even when the sun sets, for the hundreds of thousands homeless like Zakir, there is no xx.

The only hope now, the much anticipated monsoon rain during June and thankfully this year is expected to be above average.
