The worst but most respected job in the world – Sewer cleaners

(Disclaimer: Do not eat while seeing the images in this post)

You dress up nicely from your heart every morning to go to your job. You check your hair and your shiny shoes. You check for the finest fragrance to match with your look every day. This is a normal routine for most of the working people.  However, there is an occupation where clothes and perfume are not only neglected but they suffer from the most dreadful and smelliest places.23

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sewer cleaning is one of the most dangerous and disgusting occupation especially in third world countries where proper instruments to check poisonous gases, blowers to throw out polluted air, torches, gloves, even proper clothes are not provided. Living in Pakistan for most of my life, I came across these poor daily wage labour, who are willing to go down in the dirtiest sewer in order to remove the domestic and industrial waste.

These sewers contain poisonous and suffocating gases like carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulphide and methane. The water the climb down into contains a lot of chemicals like bleaches which are used to clean bathroom floors, grease from shops, mercury, the glass component, ammonia and other chemicals.

These people suffer from boils and burns, nose and lungs infections like asthma. This not only risks the labour life but the entire families. The government, especially in third world countries, like Pakistan, India and Bangladesh don’t seem to notice.

Imagine if these workers stop working for just 1 month. The entire place will be flooded with the dirty sewer water. Appreciate and thank these workers, they deserve more! Surely,  they are the most important people in our society.

Can I succeeded in being a vegetarian?

Being a non-vegetarian since childhood, I wanted to do an experiment being a vegetarian for a month.So during my 3 week holidays, I went to stay with my friends from Nepal and China (they both are part of Tao, which means they are purely vegetarian, no fish, no chicken and no onion and garlic) Even bringing non-veg food inside the house was not allowed. This gave me a chance to control my temptation for meat. So a month journey started and I became a vegetarian.
The food was no doubt delicious. With the touch of Nepali and Chinese cuisine, it was like a vegetarian paradise. With vegetarian mushroom soup to cauliflower carrot curry . I loved each and everything.
I also shared the most famous Pakistani traditional dish: Chicken Biryani ( by substituting chicken with vegetables of course) . With fingers crossed I started to follow exactly what my mother was telling me to do. ( My Mother’s food are always delicious).
The worrying part:
Vegetarian Biryani was the main course, and they invited 12 guests to be part of the dinner.
I was hoping that my food will elicit a lot of praises from the guest. And by the grace of Allah and my mother’s recipe, the vegetarian biryani was excellent and mouthwatering. Dinner went awesome with all the praises and “Thank you – Thank you”.

But To be honest, I cheated once. It was the third week, I was craving for non-veg and I went outside to a restaurant and had Malay Mutton soup.

Mission Possible: 1 month of being vegetarian. 29 days of being vegetarian.

I did notice that I lost 2 kg in 3 weeks time, which was great. I got glow in my skin and I felt fresh. Even though I didn’t continue being vegetarian, I still do weekly experiments. My next plan is for being vegan for a week at the start of 2017.

Hopes high, Fingers crossed! 
