I took these pictures this afternoon from my fourth floor kitchen window as I arrived home from work.
As the food heated, I wondered what these men might have had for lunch – or whether they would have eaten at all.
I also wondered why we forget how much hardships for some people, while others seemingly have life easy, with all the comforts that can be.
This even when we know our lives would be nowhere near what we consider normal, or comfortable – without these workers, who make sure that we live ours the way we want.
The weather’s not very hot as yet but the sun’s beating down at 30 degrees C. These brave men, however, carry on nevertheless, and will keep doing so, even as we sit comfortably in air-conditioned comfort, and enjoy a hearty meal.
But, the, reality momentarily dawns as we look out of the window – and realise there are others out there – and they, too, are human.
