Okay, now even my LAST job seems pretty good by comparison. I wonder if Rakeesh would say that he finds his career rewarding and fulfilling?

I'm too stunned to say anything witty.

New Delhi was not built to accommodate its current population of about 16 million. With hundreds of thousands pouring in from rural areas annually, its sewers—about 3,700 miles of them—are a mess, and the workers tasked with keeping the waste flowing unobstructed (half of it empties into the nearby Yamuna River) regularly put their lives on the line. "The whole system is going to collapse in the next two years if it continues as it is now," says Mahendra Kumar, a junior engineer for Delhi Jal.

Price of propagating like rabbits, the rural area and its people inhabitants in India bring down the entire nation, price of democracy. India can't implement strict population control, the human rights groups would be having a field day then.

I fell off a horse once and got dragged through a barn-yard manure pit...

THAT doesn't even come close to what Rakeesh has to endure every freakin' day...

I have a very small idea what he's going through...my prayers are sent his way...
