In From The Shadows

People who are not listed and labeled anywhere. They do meager work so that they can get handful of meal at the end of the day. Living simplest of life one can imagine and they are nameless and faceless shadows, nobody remembers them. They come and walk past. Least contribution to economy, yet forms the biggest part of it - INFORMAL SECTOR.

ILO defines this in the 1970s:
“Survival activities and those working in the marginal or peripheral segments of the economy forms the informal sector”

The National Sample Survey Organization (NSSO) OF India carried out a sample survey in 1999-2000 and its results showed that out of total workforce of 397 million, only 28 million workers are employed in the organized sector and remaining in the unorganized sector.

These hapless people are pauperized by the circumstances. Forced to keep on living like this. For them crossing that line of 'Great Divide' is close to impossible. Often exploited at the hands of fate they are further abused by the so called "middle-class" and "high-class" educated humanoids. Most of  the times these poor fellow don't even realize that how their rights fundamentals rights are breached every single day because they don't know what on earth Fundamental Rights are.

We don't need charities and policies that are drafted just to increase the weight of paper. We need this sector be organized.. seems impossible but at least we can take a step. Let's not pulverize their already shattered lives. 

Would love someday to see this world devoid of ills like poverty, unemployment and  hunger etc. In the words of Yunus Khan -Once these atrocities are gone, we'll need to build museums to display its horrors to future generations. They'll wonder why poverty, hunger, unemployment continued so long in human society - how a few people could live in luxury while billions dwelt in misery, deprivation and despair. 

Let's not leave them alone, lost in shadows instead let our hearts of stone become heart of flash by learning where these outcasts weeps ~  Brennan Manning

Organized Chromosomal Chaos - Cancer

If I could find a way
To soothe your troubled mind
Then I would erase your fears
And help you to unwind.
I would ease the burden
That you carry everyday.
