Somebody in power — probably the National Security Advisor — seems to be finally trying to pull its act together. As our TV screens relentlessly show, it is too late to avoid a war-like situation, but at least several defensive moves are taking shape. Changes have occurred at various levels — most visibly in the deployment of armed forces in the Kashmir Valley. But there's one more significant change taking place that is less visible: Judging by straws in the wind and the grapevine, the political class appears to have been persuaded to come together.

  • This Man Quit His Corporate Job to Drive Autos and Thinks It’s the ‘Best Job in the World’

    In Mumbai there is no dearth of people with ambitions higher than the buildings that dot the city's glittery skyline. But there are also many people who’ve grown tired of the usual 9-5 workday grind and feel they have no time to pursue their passions. The story of one such man, who left his job with Hindustan Unilever to drive an auto and pursue his passion for photography, was posted on the Facebook page of Humans of Bombay recently. It has been shared 2,000 times on social media over the past four days.   Aside from speaking about how confined he felt in his previous job, the auto driver goes on describe how liberating driving around and meeting new people feels. It has given him the freedom to set his own hours and pursue his passion for photography and travelling around the world, he says. Read the full text here: “I used to work at Hindustan Unilever, but the concept of a 9-5 job got too mechanical for me. There was nothing wrong with the company, but I hated the monotony to the point where I was unhappy. One morning, I woke up and quit. I didn’t really have a plan, but I knew I was passionate about a lot of things like meeting new people, photography and sketching. I didn’t want to be confined to a sp ace… I wanted to be free so I purchased this auto rickshaw a few months later because I knew I would be able to meet all kinds of people and have the time to stimulate my creativity. Of course I worked hard — sometimes I worked more than 12 hours a day but I was thrilled — I was getting to see so many new people and learnt photography from studios all over Bombay. That was 40 years ago, and to some this profession is demeaning but to me it’s the best job in the world. I’ve combined my passions in so many ways — I click photos of my passengers, I write and paint. I’ve travelled all over the world for my photography— London, Africa, Dubai and when they ask me what I do — I proudly say I drive an auto rickshaw in Bombay. After hearing that I’ve completed my MSC and speak fluent English, people often ask me why I continue to drive an auto and to that I’ll say only one thing. Happiness is something that no amount of money can ever buy, and once you know have that you’re the richest person in the world— and that’s how I feel. I feel on top of the world, every single day.” To read more stories from Humans of Bombay, click here. Like this story? Or have something to share?
