Today (1 may 2016) is known as “May Day” or International Labour Day. Many countries celebrate another festival (spring festival) on this day which is called “May Day”. The labour related “May Day” is celebrated only in few countries on this day. There are countries that celebrate the International Labour day on some other date.

This day came about in an era when workers did not enjoy rights and they had to work under oppressive conditions. As a result of labour movements, Trade Unions came into existence and workers began to enjoy better working conditions and remunerations.

It is to be kept in mind that working conditions have improved for organised labour. Labour in unorganised sectors do not enjoy the same benefits. Labour (as well as other

When we look at the lots of organised labour all over the world, we find that organised labour of Industrialised nations, that enjoy high productivity in their industries, enjoy better facilities than the organised labour of coutries that followed leftist/ socialistic policies.
So it means that labour (and other class of society) prosper only if the economy of the country is doing well. and economy of a country does well if the policies of the country encourage economic growth.

India is a classic example of how change in economical policies can change the lot of its “labour” and other classes.

India was following a socialistic Industrial Policy that saw the economy of the country on the verge of collapse in late 1980s. India sought the help of IMF to bail it out. The conditions laid down by IMF forced India to open its economy. It was this economical liberalisation that enabled India to finally start to grow economically. The economy of country began to grow at a high rate. In the three decades of socialistic economy, the per capita income had grown only at the rate of 1.3 %. Post liberalisation, the country has seen per capita earning double in a decade, thanks to high growth rate of economy. So the message is, if the economy grows, then the people working in the economy benefit.

It must be said that it is the private sector in India that has led in the economic growth. The government sector by and large is struggling to play catch up. Lots of reforms are required in Government sector before they too can start to play their meaningful roles in the economical growth of the country.

On the occasion of International Labour Day, here is a song from “Pyaar Ka bandhan”(1963). The song is sung by Rafi and chorus. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

The message contained in the lyrics of this song are rather mixed. There is some upbeat message like “Mehnat ne hamko paala” and “Sirf apni baahon ka bal hai” but then the messages that follow are largely of despondency and hopelessness, viz.
“Ham logon ka is duniya mein
Koi nahin rakhwaalaa”

and
“Yehi thhi purkhon ki taqdeerein
Yehi hai hamse hona “.

Then there is this line containing the word “Gareebi” that always riles me up-
“Iint aur patthar bojh nahin hai
Bojh hai teri gareebi ee”

Now more than half a century later, situation is quite different. Things have changed a lot. People who are not afraid of hard work can get work, but people who are looking for “naukri” rather than “kaam” (read sarkaari naukri) may no longer get the kind of “naukri” where they could get away without needing to work and perform.

This song, like most such songs of this genre tries to tell that “Mazdoor” is “gareeb” because it is his fate and it will remain his fate in future as well. So what does a “mazdoor” do ? Perform “mehnat” while cursing his “Fate” and remaining reconciled with his “gareebi” ? I do not think this is quite a message than a “mazdoor” or for that matter any “worker” should subscribe to. There are “leaders” who have championed the cause of “gareebs” for generations and they still claim to champion their cause. Why are “mazdoor” still “gareeb” when these champions have ruled the nation for generations promising to “hataao the gareebi”. By now the cases of “gareebi” should have been eliminated from the nation the way diseases like “small pox” and “polio” have been eliminated.

Having said that, the “gareeb” of the society must take charge of their own destiny instead of hoping that “leaders” will change their destiny. If they cannot change their own destiny then they should not expect others to change their destinies, especially when those people have no such intentions in the first place and secondly, they do not even have such capabilites.

Here is this song from “Pyaar Ka Bandhan”(1963). Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.
