When talking to our cab driver, Butti, he told us that he was 30 years old married at 19, has a child 7 years of age and has a wife who stays at home.
He makes 7K rupees a month - as of the date of this post roughly $109. For almost a third of his income, (2000RS )he pays for his child’s schooling, and the average cost of a meal is 60-100RS. On the high end that buys about 4 meals a day yet he has to feed 3 people .
We invited him to have lunch with us, but I think he didn’t understand that we wanted to buy him lunch - not out of sympathy but because he was a really fun dude. Anyway, when we returned and we asked why he didn’t want to come and in his broken English he mentioned that 400 rupees was too costly ($6.25). The restaurant who’s power kept going out and had no light in the bathroom was too expensive according to him.
I guess it’s relative - one could argue that the cost of living is less here but so is the quality - by a lot. It’s interesting to think that whatever challenges I’ve ever faced - I still experienced them in Orange County, CA-America. For example, Food stamps got me basically any food I wanted except for the hot pre-made food and alcohol at the grocery stores. Not to mention the food was clean, water was safe etc.
Perspective is key. Generally, we have things pretty good, but that’s not the point of my social media. I hope that over time anyone reading my posts shift from thinking “things could always be worse” to thinking “things could always be better” and work toward that instead. #fodorsonthego
