A man wearing a Taqiyah was working in a stall by the roadside. His stall was rather inclined to make easy to work. It seemed to be used when he wrote something. His job might be a ghost-writing or clean copy.

It was still uncommon to have a personal computer in this country. So it was still profitable to have an ability to write. Besides, as hard as it is to believe, you sometimes see the people who did the ghost-writing by the roadside in the countries with the low literacy rate.
