All of these men have come from different states thousands of miles away just to earn a living. For a long time there will be a gratitude for regular work especially in the construction sector which is suddenly seeing a growth!

As a writer, reading the following lines from The Moon and Sixpence gave me some solace:
“The moral I draw is that the writer should seek his reward in the pleasure of his work and in release from the burden of his thoughts; and, indifferent to aught else, care nothing for praise or censure, failure or success.”—W Somerset Maugham
