LOW WAGE PAYLOADS

Carrying low-wage

material _ nevertheless more valuable than themselves
informal-sector _ nonetheless wall-street-, Bombay-, Frankfurt-, London-, Hong Kong-, Sydney-, Johannesburg- and Tokyo-traded
Payloads of Karma for some left-over tit-bits of Bacon

Even a rich western tourist is not willing to pay them
a penny more than what an age-old feudal exploitation system has pre-determined.

I bet even Murdoch and Soros would loath to pay them more.
Indeed this must be KARMA!

Weaving Tapestry Hard-Chore

A Child Weaving A Carpet In Kashmir

The pattern written on the strip of paper hanging in front of the weavers is sung loud for almost 14 to 16 hours a day from Monday to Monday (excluding religious holidays). The constant sitting in this half crouched position often leads to these youngsters acquiring a hunch back at an early age in life. And their wages are equivalent or even less than what the owners of these carpets in some foreign countries spend on cleaning them, not more than the cost of a filter replacement for their vacuum cleaner.

 Appendix. The good side of the warped Karma
Unlike sportsmen, of whom all the nations are proud and who are in fact the sine qua non of modern totemic national identity of the public and accordingly more than well nourished and quite often artificially updated and refurbished with high tech medics and sports gymnastics, these urban denizens literally live on fallen left-over crumbs of the society. Nevertheless they manage to transport with sheer body power tons and tons of payloads at temperatures exceeding 35ьз╕C. It is a tribute to the efficiency of their bodies to convert coarse meals of legumes and wheat (most of them almost never eat meat or eggs) to such dynamic heights. Furthermore some of them have never ever consulted a doctor, many of them never had an vaccination of any sort and living often in squalor, their immune systems as generally as fit as one can wish for. Many of them remain economically and otherwise active viable participants of communal life right up to a ripe wiry old age. They would never dream of homes for seniors or a day care center. And to top it all, they are generally easy going, good-humored and although carrying tons of physical payloads free from the urban formal wage-worker's myriads of ailments. No you won't find them in the Guinness book of records, but they do represent a significant part of the world population.
