I met a cycle rickshaw puller whom I had known for a few years and asked my old question, “Why do you not look for a better job instead of pulling a cycle rickshaw?” He asked me if I was free to have a chat with him in a nearby park.1 After settling down he said, “You have been asking the same question for many years, but you never asked us a question which mattered to us the most. Th e questions that you raised refl ected a limited perspective and did not provide us a scope to place our perspective. I would like to explain this to you.”
