The Humble Kabadiwallah

Watching my dad haggle with the local kabadiwallah who buys our old newspapers and other used stuff from us, made me realise something. We are probably the only country in the world, where we actually sell off our recyclables. Nowhere else does that happen, because it is seen as social service. In fact, in the USA, it is the other way round: you have to pay the garbage-removers to actually take away your recyclables. And we, being Indians, still haggle over the price we get :D. Oh well.
