#IkonEveryday: A Day With A Road Sweeper

I just watched this video on YouTube under the #IkonEveryday series. #IkonEveryday started its life as a Twitter hashtag. But this time they have taken to the ground to explore the gritty reality of the unseen people who do the jobs that are unappreciated in Malaysian society.

This particular video features the road sweeper and the journalist, Sharmila Nair was my former class mate. Really inspiring and hopefully more people will not only appreciate such workers but also stop throwing rubbish on the road and all over the place. The most common I see these days, is the flicking of the cigarette butt.

Kudos to GTP and the rage for starting this series and hopefully we can see more videos such as this.
