Souls of my city
The occupation that made me able
Prem Jaiswal believes that all humans were created equal but the variance in their lifestyle provides each human an individual identity.
“Though you long for a certain way of living, your economic condition restricts you,” he stated as he continued fastening the brakes of a bicycle in his workshop. The 42-year-old cycle mechanic from Motihari, India, at present resides in Om Bahal with his five children and a spouse. He came to Nepal a year after his marriage in hopes of starting a new life.
A few minutes away from his residence, he operates a cycle shop with the smell of brake oil. “I did not continue my education. I started working as a cycle mechanic from a very small age. This occupation enabled me to start a new life here which has so far helped me provide for my family, and also educate my children,” added Jaiswal.
