"The hands of Labor " Jaipour India

These are the hands of labor
The hands that bring food,
for 40 Rupees a day!...
View On Black

This is the scholar whose immortal pen
Spells the first lesson hunger taught to men;

His name is Ravnit, 14 years old
he weaves rugs for a living
his father wove rugs and his father’s father too…

This is his family trade
Not the rug weaving,
But the hands that bring food!!!

40 Rupees = $1.00 USD
