Street Learning

bd1ca-img_5027You must have seen people on street

Have you ever wondered, “How the people on the street live and survive?”

Yes, it’s really tough to be on the street to bear the brunt of heat waves, cold waves, rains, winds and above all an uncertain life

BUT

The People on the Street Teach us , “How to live and survive with the minimal things around us.” 

Things can turn bad anytime with us while on a travel or on a photography/documentary expedition. We can be hit by a snowstorm or a rain storm or can experience long periods of heat wave.

What If : It’s Cold?

It’s winter and you are in your house with the heating on, and when you venture out, you have your warm clothing with you. But, not everyone has the access or the money to get warm clothing, what to do?

A simple answer from the street ,”Use Newspaper to keep yourself warm, crumple the newspaper and stuff it between your clothing”. Newspaper acts as insulator and prevents your body heat from escaping. 

 

What If : It’s hot?

It’s hot and you are in your house with the air-conditioner  on, and when you venture out you have your sun cream, sunglasses, you have an air conditioned vehicle. But, not everyone has the access or the money to get all of this, what to do?

A simple answer from the street, “Eat onions, Eat garlic as they prevent the body from getting a heat stroke. Yes, there are many other measures, but this is basic.”

What If : It’s raining?

It’s raining like cats and dogs, but you are in your home, not to worry. What if you are on the street in heavy rains.

Plastic. Remember one thing, nothing is 100 % waterproof, everything is water resistant. Use plastic, you can call that 100 % waterproof. 


Be open to learn from those who we consider/call as less fortunate. Although, Charles Darwin said, “Survival of the Fittest” and yes that is true but the key to survival is learning.

Yes, it is tough to live on street but then street is an excellent teacher.
