Dignity of Labour
In today’s so called “modern” and “developed” times, people aspire only for “white collar” jobs.
A “white collar” job only requires passing an exam for a paper degree stating that you have obtained theoretical knowledge in your field of study.
It is no indicator that the person is specially and best qualified to do the job.
It was based in the cursed aristocrat class based society of England, where rich idle land lords who became rich only by inheritance because they won the genetic lottery, considered it beneath their dignity to do the same work as the peasants.
This FUKUS corruption along with our inherently unjust and despicable caste system, has been brought to a real perversion in Bharat, where children are even ashamed to name the occupations of their parents if they are “blue collar” workers.
Ignorant so called “upper caste” people torment “blue collar” workers, when they should actually be admired for working sincerely and honestly to earn an honest wage by the sweat of their devoted efforts and the deft skill of their labour.
In ancient Bharat, there was dignity of labour.
People never looked down on so called “blue collar” workers.
There was no such thing are “white collar” and “blue collar”.
Even people with “white collar” education and aristocratic and royal lineage did “blue collar” jobs like farming, carpentry, cobbling, weaving and herding.
The best of all and beautiful in everyway was the royal ghat, where men of all the four castes could bathe.
All the men and women were unaffectedly good, pious and virtuous; all were clever and accomplished. Everyone recognized the merits of others and was learned and wise;
All were grateful for kindness and the services and benefits received from others and were guilelessly prudent.
