house for five years not become a Brahmin)” For the thousands of workers in the industrial areas of the National Capital Region life is tied to the shift beginning in the morning at 8 and ending 12 hours later It is an arduous life with little financial or job security Away from the demands of the assembly line and squalid housing leisure is in short supply But even if rarely workers clear a space for that which seems impossible: for thought and contemplation and even the artistic life On a Sunday afternoon in west Delhi’s Mayapuri industrial area Lal Vachan 45 and fellow workers rest at the MCD park a small island of green in the grey matrix of factory buildings Lal Vachan has been working as a factory hand in Mayapuri since 1985 For him escape from the drudgery of work at an

chooe pasinva ho/ Tap tap chooe pasinva/ Ghar aile bhar pet na mile bhojanwa larka rowe/ Ghar anganwa sukh sapanwa bhaiya na (All day long brother I toil/ Drop by drop I sweat it out oh/ Drop by drop I sweat it out/ Yet when I go back home my boy weeps over a half-empty stomach/ My home is devoid of happiness and dreams)” he sings in his full-throated voice An editor distributes copies of the Faridabad Mazdoor Samachar “Art and creativity has always been there (in wage workers) It becomes a way of expressing and experiencing freedom from back-breaking labour and poor working and living conditions Only it never comes to light because it is known in smaller circuits” says Sudhanva Deshpande actor and director with Jana Natya Manch a Delhi-based theatre company Lal Vachan writes his songs on the factory shopfloor “I snatch a few minutes here and there to compose a line and set it to a tune After the 11kv furnace designed to melt 500 kg of iron by the hour is rested I begin composing My first audience is my immediate worker friend Later I sing it to my worker friends across Mayapuri They love my songs” he says Lal Vachan lives with his wife and daughter-in-law in a jhuggi along the railway line His songs reflect his circumstances and those of the workers around him “I was not paid my wages amounting to Rs 60000 for six months back in 2013 by the owner of Karan

account)” he says All 140 workers continue to work in the factory after a court-mediated settlement The Mayapuri industrial area is home to the country’s biggest scrap yard for automobiles and hundreds of small-scale metal forging and auto-part units It began taking shape around 1975 as the capital’s scrap and furniture markets shifted out of the Old Delhi railway station area and Kirti Nagar respectively and moved here Export garments and heavy machine factories followed suit in the 1990s followed by migrants in search of work 16-year-old Ashish Kumar in Haiderpur In the early 2000s as news of accidents deaths and instances of harassment began to be reported the shlf1314n Federation of Trade Unions (IFTU) opened a chapter here This was also the time heavy industries moved out of Mayapuri to Bahadurgarh and Manesar on the fringes of the NCR making way for hundreds of smaller textiles utensil and auto-part units which employ roughly 100 to 200 workers each Today there are roughly 1800 factory units in Mayapuri Rajesh Kumar general secretary of IFTU’s Delhi committee who convinced Lal Vachan to join the union when the workers filed the court case says “We keep an eye out for higher minds like Lal Vachanji who are popular among their co-workers Their songs their stories and plays are a potential media for broadening worker consciousness” The worker on the assembly line has inspired films such as Charlie Chaplin’s Modern Times and the music of Pete Seeger Much earlier French philosopher Jacques Ranciere’s seminal work Proletarian Nights celebrated the writer-worker of the French working class during the revolution of 1830 He wrote about the worker-writer who rises above his proletarian lot by thinking and writing radical acts in themselves by virtue of being exercised by workers who were otherwise “destined” to plod away at mindless alienating labour Ranciere re-evaluated the working class as not merely a wretched lot clamouring for better wages and work conditions but also one comprising an aesthetically conscious few who want an alternate life without the “daily theft of their time” He discovered workers who reclaimed the nights from the cycle of work and sleep to write discuss keep journals and circulate newspapers — acts which brought them closer to the intellectually mobile bourgeoisie class “endowed with the privilege of thought” Worker newspapers and journals have been thriving in industrial regions of the Delhi-NCR as well They chronicle protests on factory shopfloors court cases lost and won happenings around the world one’s engagement with time and life The latest issue of the Faridabad Majdoor Samachar a paper started by workers and activists in the 1980s for instance opens with an article titled ‘Sunday

“Uncle have you heard of the latest invention: the Sunday struggle” a youth begins “It’s the day leaders want workers to stage hunger strikes gather outside government offices distribute pamphlets and oppose the dictatorship on shop floors” The older worker clarifies “You mean on the weekly off” The youth says “Exactly Production stays safe Companies stay safe Officials stay safe Nothing is harmed no one is rankled” “Sunday struggle is a metaphor for all the hindrances invented and manufactured by factory owners to keep workers from agitating” an editor of the monthly workers’ broadsheet says as he opens the door to the Faridabad Majdoor Library which hosts brainstorming sessions among workers writers artists and friends “A worker told me about it and I put it down as the opening story in the current edition” It is 7 am on a Friday The editor who does not want to be named is armed with an umbrella a notebook and a pen He anchors himself outside the office of a telecom giant in

are looking for work Sonu Kumar a worker in the export textiles industry recently found out he was no longer needed at work when he returned from a short visit to Chhapra Bihar because his mother was ill “I took the supervisor’s permission But I came back and saw my former colleague hired in my place Everything is so fluid and temporary in the labour market No one survives a work stint more than a year because the owner will fire you on some pretext or the other Today it’s down season in the export market and workers are not needed tomorrow Diwali is nearing so factory owners lay off people by the horde to avoid paying bonus and then there is the bogey of the factory being shifted to Manesar” Sonu says The newspaper not only records reports on lockouts and international labour law violations or reforms it also features short exchanges aphoristic ruminations on how one sees life time work and rest Vipin a 21-year-old who desperately wants to get out of factory work for good is a regular contributor to the Samachar “I am studying to clear exams for admission into a power supply company” he says His stories offer a glimpse into the opaque logic of the factory One of them titled Behrupi Akritiyon ki Pratidhwani or ‘Polymorphic Resonances’ (the English translation can be read online on the blog of the Faridabad Majdoor Samachar) talks of how free will spontaneously expresses itself on the “surreal” shopfloor He describes an instance of fellow workers rebelling against forced excess production — by finishing work before time “That day there was no meeting There were no hushed conversations No one called others for discussions Everyone was calm and quiet The thought of stopping work and cleaning one’s hands 45 minutes before lunch hour came to each one on the shop
