Our world

 
The 'Bhangaar waala' of Mumbai is a cog in the recycling industry of Mumbai. He goes around buying junk from peoples' homes and takes it all and sells it off to the Junk wholesaler who in turn sells it off to the recyclers of paper, plastic and metal.

  3. Aah...these are the people who are actually helping Mother Earth and we ignore them, or simply "pity" them or not even notice that they exist. But they ought to be loved and adored and paid properly for their work. Your photograph of this man, walking straight, arms flexed, holding the cart does him proud!!!An appropriate ode to Bungaar waalas!
