The Brave “Digger”

Kharapathar, Himachal Pradesh, India, 12 December 2016, 1700 hours:

Just as we were about to reach Kharapathar, the traffic was stopped as work was in progress on the road. After looking at the scene, I couldn’t help thinking how would the person in the ‘digger’ be feeling, operating a machine on top of the debris from the mountain side, while he manoeuvred the machine picking up the debris from one corner and displacing it on the other side.
