A big burden was put on the man's head

When I waled the narrow lane, a man came from over there. He was walking while he was carrying a big bag. Like other laborers in India, he put the bag on his head and fastened it by his hands.

The mechanization was far from the ordinary laborers here. The wage could be so low. It was cheaper to force to work than to use machines.

Because he noticed me, he opened his mouth wide when he was passing by.
