A rickshaw puller is a poor day labourer who earns his livelihood by pulling rickshaw. He is a familiar figure in our country. Generally he lives in a slum area. He carries passengers and goods in his rickshaw from one place to another on payment. Very few rickshaw pullers have their own rickshaws. Usually a rickshaw puller hires a rickshaw from the owner on daily basis. He comes out on the roads and streets early in the morning and works with his rickshaw till late hours of night. He works in good and bad weather. sometimes he feels tired but cannot take rest. Even he cannot take rest during heavy rainfall or in the scorching heat of in the summer. He must pull rickshaw to earn the daily bread for himself and for his family. Despite working very hard a rickshaw puller earns little. He cannot save money. So when he is sick he and his family falls into trouble. Sometimes, his income is less than the usual. Then he faces more difficulties in maintaining his family. He has to live from hand to mouth He cannot provide food, education and medicine to his family properly. Even they have to starve sometimes. In spite of all these odd conditionals he feels proud to live on his fair earnings from his sweat, He finds great pleasure to serve people at a minimum cost. His service is really very great. He is friend to all. So we should show due respect to a rickshaw puller.
