Moving Souls

Every time when I see my classmates or for that matter my college buddies, I feel sad to see them travel from places as far as 50km to come here to learn (At least here they have the facilities but in north Karnataka neither they’re good teachers nor are the children interested in studying!) But I felt sadder when I spoke to a bus driver who drives along that route (Mangaluru-Karkala).He drives 3 return trips-that’s 6 times one-way- cutting along the potholes in the negligently maintained road from Padubidri to Karkala. His duty starts at eight in the morning to end home at 10.15 at night. He says that the people who are responsible roads (read as those in the higher rung) for maintaining the simply pay the taxes without a murmur to make the drivers condition even worse. As always, they work for food, shelter and cloth. But don’t they have a right to drive in the well conditioned roads? Just as everybody likes a good teacher-Doesn’t the same principle apply here too?
