And someone feels this:
“I do not believe that (valmikis) they have been doing this job just to sustain their livelihood. Had this been so, they would not have continued with this type of job generation after generation.” And adds, “At some point of time, somebody must have got the enlightenment that it is their (Valmikis’) duty to work for the happiness of the entire society and the Gods; that they have to do this job bestowed upon them by Gods; and that this job of cleaning up should continue as an internal spiritual activity for centuries. This should have continued generation after generation. It is impossible believe that their ancestors did not have the choice of adopting any other work or business.”[ref]
