Stop cribbing about how little you make (Part II)

In rising, shining, incredible India—in the nation with the fourth most number of dollar-millionaires, which has clocked an 8 per cent growth in its GDP four years in a row, whose non-residents sent back $27 billion last year—a civic worker in  the country’s first planned City enters a manhole in Devaraja Mohalla to clear a blocked drain after heavy rains.

As Star of Mysore pertinently notes, the worker did not have any professional tools nor any safety equipment, and there were no caution signs around him to warn motorists of his presence.
