‘Koi Kaam Chota Ya Bada Nahi Hota Sahab’: Atma Ram Singh,72, Ex- Indian Navy Personnel

The Logical Indian

October 7th, 2015 / 11:38 PM

Atma Ram Singh, aged 72 years has worked for 24 years for Indian Navy as a colour painter. He has three sons well settled in Ludhiana, but he doesn’t stays with any of them.

His only problem is that he doesn’t get the freedom with them which he enjoys staying alone.

He lost his wife way back in 2003 and when I asked him, “Why do you work, you must be getting pension?”, he said- “agar baitha rahega to jaldi zindagi pura ho jayega” (If I will keep sitting I will die earlier). He is very thankful to the government for granting him his current job.

I asked him, “Don’t you feel the loss of dignity, sweeping the floors everyday?” to which he replied-“koi kaam chota ya Bada nahi hota” (no work is big or small). I admire the window through which he sees life.
