If you commute to work through rush-hour traffic, you understand how incredibly frustrating it can be. For me, my route during non-peak hours only takes about 30 minutes. But when everyone is trying to get to work at the same time? It takes over 90 minutes! It’s an experience that I absolutely dread and that I complain about endlessly. But then I heard a story about a man in India whose journey to work puts mine to shame. Abdul Malik is a 40-year-old primary school teacher in India and his dedication to his students is absolutely incredible. To get to work every day, Malik wades across a river with neck-high water, holding his belongings above his head. Yep… now I just feel spoiled.
