Earning Dignity

We, in India, tend to look down upon certain professions and crafts and in the process often show disrespect to the people who are working on them. Whereas all they are doing is doing their best, making a living in the most honourable way they know and 'earning dignity' for themselves and their family. Our society will only be truly equitable and democratic, I feel, the day we are able to look at all people and all jobs as equal and worthy of respect.
