Accidentally a policeman happened to sit next to me in the bus today morning….He must have been a constable of around my dad’s age…..He was the one who started off the conversation enquiring about my phone and we then reached the talk about the notorious China made handsets,it was a feeble argument…But, it was i who was against it and he seemed to support it for his own simple reasons…..
He has been one of the most friendly strangers i have ever spoken to and this has lead to a paradigm shift about these ‘until now antagonistic policemen’…
He spoke about his son, his aspirations and being a father his apprehensions….
Then came the shocker,he said he was returning from night duty and we happened to discuss his pay and he was genuine in saying that,the government pays him only Rs.200 per day !!!!!
What value does that little money hold today in Bangalore???He was a well built,tall man with a son of around my age…. Even if we consider the benefits given to these people by the government,the monetary funds being so low is definitely a matter to be reviewed thoroughly…..
