It’s quite rare to find an English speaking daily wage laborer and that too a graduate in India but what if you come across one? So yes we have found a man who has those qualities.
Ahead of Lok Sabha elections 2019, a reporter who was seeking public opinion on the recent political scenario came across a daily wage laborer who replied to his questions in English and that majorly caught the eyeballs.
In a video by Lallantop, the man from Bihar is seen talking about politics in English and the bystanders were amused to see that. The reporter was too stunned and asked him about his education and he said that he was a graduate! Isn’t it interesting?
In the video, the laborer talked about unemployment and how it continues to be a big problem. He also compared jobs during the times of Indira Gandhi to current PM Narendra Modi. He says while he is a graduate from Bhagalpur University, he couldn’t manage to find a job. Although the lack of job opportunities continues to be a problem, the situation is grim today compared to the past.
Talking in broken English, he says, “I want to work. I want to work and want to say to Modi to allow for work. I don’t get daily work and without food, I have to sleep. Modi sarkar, koi kahan kar raha hai rozgaar ka upay? (sic)” He adds saying, “He adds, “Rozgari, Indira Gandhi ke time pe badiya thi, abhi Modi ke time pe bhi badiya hai. Location, work, and position, everything was good but now it is not great.”
His thoughts and perspective had made us amused and being a graduate from Bihar who speaks in English clearly show how much employment is there in the country.
