Rohit Varghese, a Delhi-based radio jockey, wanted to learn how excruciating it is to be a rickshaw puller in the New Delhi heat.

The temperature in New Delhi touched an alarming 47 Cº last Wednesday.

He was shocked to find out the rickshaw puller carries no water, as the soaring temperatures result in the water heating up very fast.

As a result, the rickshaw puller said he only refills the water bottle when he feels thirsty, and consumes it immediately.


"They don't complain for a second. They deserve much much more than what they are getting", Varghese told BuzzFeed.
