Tale of Two Children

Published June 28th, 2012

Nadira works as a domestic worker in a house in the capital of Bangladesh. Both of her employers go out everyday in the morning to join their job & back home by evening. All the day long, only except Friday, she has to stay home alone & do her routine activities. She has to sweep the whole house, then she cleans the kitchen, then she prepares breakfast & serves on the table & above all, she has to look after their 5 years old boy-child. Though her employer lady is kind enough to assist her whenever she returns home by evening, the major part of preparing dinner is the biggest task for Nadira. She always tries to perform her best, even though mistakes are occurred & she use to get rebuked by her employer lady. But Nadira admits such disrespect made upon her because she never faced cruelty & physical assault from her employer. Nadira gets no day off apart from her annual leave for 4/5 days to visit her parents. She is paid a very little as wages gets 3 meals everyday & a pair of clothes every year Eid festival. Under all these circumstances, Nadira dreams a better future. She knows that her family depends a bit on her small income & it contributes to her family to survive.
