30. Do people look at different kinds of work in the same way? If not, why is this so? Why is it important to bring change?

Ans. No, even today people do not look at different kinds of work in the same way. Most of the road cleaners, toilet sweepers etc. are still from some particular communities only. The other people do not consider these jobs respectable and they hate these jobs and also treat these people in a derogatory manner.

This difference has been created because the rich people study well and get good jobs. Thus, they earn well and become richer. But the poor people can’t even afford to eat, So, they can’t spent on studying and are forced to take these kinds of jobs. This needs to be changed in order to bring equality among the people so that everyone should respect each other.

Ans. If everyone will start doing all kinds of work then no work will be considered low or disrespectful. There will be equality among the people, no one will feel superior or inferior. No one will insult any one. Everyone will become independent. The practice of untouchability will also vanish. The men and women will work together at our own house also. The men will also help the women by doing some household work.
