"The hands of Labor " Jaipour India
These are the hands of labor
The hands that bring food,
for 40 Rupees a day!...
This is the scholar whose immortal pen
Spells the first lesson hunger taught to men;
His name is Ravnit,
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!!!
