I'm a professional Trackwork Rider. I ride Racehorses for a living in Rural Australia from doing it in my home country of Ireland. I have 4am starts, I ride up to 10+ Racehorses in a single morning. I hit upwards of 70kmph doing full tilt gallops on these half tonne animals in the pitch black of the morrning. Not to mention, because of where I'm based, we have Kangaroos on the track daily, falls are common, and the young Racehorses Spook, buck and rear because they're only young and inexperienced. I continue riding even with Injuries, and falls into the bush or brush can result in a bite from Tiger Snakes or Brown Snakes. We saw a dead one with a dead fox on the track last week. The level of physical fitness, pain threshold, patience for the horses, and ability to stay calm even if things go horribly wrong cannot be overstated,, even outside of my job, I have to diet to maintain a certain weight to be light enough to be allowed to ride. And many horses are so strong only some of us are allowed to ride, as they hook off with any inexperienced racehorse rider. it's why Trackriders are a dying art and so incredibly hard to find for little pay. Yet these horses are out winning Millions at the races as a result of our hard work. But there's no more amazing feeling of connecting to some horses that speak to you, and watching it win a race, especially a big race that's worth millions. And knowing my main ride has won two races in a row lately is such a great feeling. One horse at my job I've bonded with so much I actually plan to take home after he retires too. Nobody else likes him but for some reason him and I just get on so well that other than the Jockey themselves, only I exclusively ride as he's extremely touchy for many other riders. I have amateur GoPro footage on my channel to show, but I'd love if our profession was more covered. I've gotten smashed legs first into a metal pole and continued to ride 6 more after despite massive bruising, with a half busted left knee and countless other minor injuries and scars because of my love for this job and these amazing animals. Many of us don't make it too, trackriders are often killed, and the daughter of a trainer in my village actually got paralyzed from the neck down when a horse fell on top of her while riding.

@Khanh Phạm Đình no, they would work for another company and most migrate to other parts of the continent & abroad. Poverty does not equate to immorality and low self esteem. YOU would choose to to steal and prostitute yourself not everyone else. 97% of the people in low income communities are good hard working people. It’s the gangs which case all the havoc and clearly you believe every exploitative story you hear. The media’s motto is “if it bleeds it leads.” These are their leading news stories to which they feed you in order to generate views ie money. They also don’t want to show what goes on in more effluent areas because they would be vilifying their primary customers.

@Geetanjali Das i know about the stuff you mentioned,and that its not meant for social rightness (i never said its only for one single reason) however just because a tradition has a name eg. Solah sringar or just because unmarried women wear it doesn't mean it cant be imposed..the conservative depending on where one lives are pretty strict with their imposing when it comes to married women,many however arent as strict but that doesn't mean imposing which is still common doesn't exist. Despite asking for a rational conversation and facts, you are getting angry hence loosing your rationale,i m just trying to explain why you are explaining facts which dont prove that things i mentioned in my previous comments dont happen ,it only explains that that its a tradition and what i already knew. because in your eyes either your religion/traditions are being attacked according to you,by a person that doesn't know stuff about your culture/background, that being your presumption. Rather than actually comprehending my both comments and the first to priyanka where i already explained everything as to where i got that information from (which isnt an idea its just the reality).. So if you truely care about being rational/logical and not just emotional just re-read and recomprehend my first comment to @priyanka verma because you seemed to have either missed it or didn't comprehend it well,and that already has all the details you asked about so i dont have to repaste it and take up that much space again, second one to @hobby organist is just a related continuation. (i think i should have added that before already but i didn't because my comments are already too long and there are different nuances to everything, it isnt black and white)... And i apologize if it feels like a disrespect to your tradition but its an opinion i have formed from various different articles that i already mentioned in my comments above and many peoples experiences from quora will tell you exactly what i have said from people that have same/similar culture as you (since many different ppl of different places wear bangles and i will try not to presume your culture),that social issue is also represented in in indian tv shows and if one says oh they are just articles/fiction/testimonies from people online and they can be unverifiable then i d have to say the same for any interaction including this one, so if your point is valid so is theirs. just because you think that an outsider is criticizing your culture that doesn't mean they are wrong either as long as they research about the situation and i have, and traditional,regardless of whose they are not always logical though especially when people force others to ignore the critical problems that different traditions have In the name of demanding respect simply because its that persons/someone's tradition,not that i mind respecting them though as long as things i stated above dont happen, even though what you stated are facts, what i stated is true as well. you can look them up if you care about facts and different opinions than just believing in your own experiences but ignoring that various different types of experiences that are both good and bad exist too,i understand that you have been told in your part of society that its not an imposition and may be you havent seen it be an imposition on others, doesn't mean that everyones situation is the same.... So you and your experiences alone arent a spokesperson or a representative for your tradition or culture, its all those people include you whose negative experiences are just as valid as yours as its their culture too and not just yours alone since most ppl get feel so personally attacked over religion and culture that they loose their rational thoughts.. So while you can speak for some of it and what you have experienced, you cant speak for all of it or them. I mentioned the sources and where to find them because theres no way i can copy paste all those resources in comments section since YouTube only allows in app links. But if you dont want that hassle of finding out the truth but just want to believe what you think you know or your experiences thats up to you,just that you cant convince any one else that disagrees with force and already known and acknowledged but unrelated half explantions, except ppl that already agree with you or yourself if you refuse to look at things from multiple perspectives. Anyway i understand that people may do something like wearing something for many reasons that don't even have to be traditional, many people just wear it just because they like it by either subconscious conditioning/copying it from other ppl without relating it to any cultural tradition.. I only mind it when its shamed and just because its tradition people just blindly defend it according to their experiences. Either way its your presumption that i dont have the background knowledge, simply because i don't mention it when its not needed and i wanted to reduce the length of my previous comment. P. S. Ik i m a bit blunt with these comments but being more empathetic and making the words palatable takes time and more details,which i dont have and i doubt you d want this comment to be longer than it already is.either way do know that constructive criticisms arent done with intention to hurt religious/cultural/traditional sentiments but to raise awareness about that topic and help the people that are affected to to its malpractice.

@kizunaryu vermillion bangles are worn by unmarried girls as well. That's a part of 16 sringar. Not everything is done for social rightness. Respect the tradition. Woman who don't have money will also have a one bangle in two wrist. I don't know where u got the idea that bangles represent the imposition on woman. Definitely who don't want don't have to. Making safety rules are the need. But I don't get it from where u got this idea to question on my tradition and say that it's imposition. Lmao talk on logical facts when u don't know the background knowledge.

@Hobby Organist well priyanka (who responded to you) said that women wear it due to cultural tradition but imo they don't wear it just because the jewels are cheap/because its tradition,women that are educated and can question and dislike them are shamed by society/spouses/in-laws relatives to wear them because of patriarchal rules and superstition that says that bangles are a sign/symbol for their husbands and sons well being,and possibly other ulterior reasons, so its fear of social ostracization and shaming that causes modern women to wear them, and women who are already brainwashed and socially conditioned to wear them and sometimes who may be educated/uneducated but not modern just continue their lives without realizing it. (you can read my full comment response to priyanka and explanation regarding it if you want (thats probably above this comment) since i dont want to copy and paste such a large comment and take up space..

I hope if they're well educated on this manner or atleast the ministry should take any such step. While they risk themselves the companies make crores, the type of hardwork which gives barely anything eventually other than losing eyesight.

The workers choosing not to wear uncomfortable protective gear is only because they have no idea about the health risk they are putting themselves in just to eliminate a bit of discomfort. The factory owners bending so conveniently to the worker's 'discomfort', is a direct reflection of how labour laws are totally disregarded. It's his responsibility to educate the workers on the health risks and make them wear the safety gear. If proper labour laws were implemented, and had he been held liable for the injuries and health problems the workers suffered, he would have forced them to wear the safety gear. It's not such an impossible conundrum

@Evelyn Spaghetti It's true the workers are not treated well. If an employer cares about the workers' safety, they will also create safe conditions. This includes adequate ventilation and equipment to prevent overheating. If someone's own privilege enables them to speak up for those being harmed - then they should.

Appalling. Their work is so beautiful and so highly skilled and yet they have side hustles. I've been in a glass studio and heat is just indescribable. They only work in these conditions with no safety gear because they don't realize the longterm risks, and they praise the industry for keeping them fed despite the industry so actively taking advantage of them and effectively ensuring that they remain impoverished and ill by underpaying them and allowing them to remain ignorant of danger. And I'm sure not all of them are totally unaware of these facts, but the system is so perfectly constructed that they can't escape it. It would require massive concerted effort, but I hope that someday they can organize and change this way of life. I wish people in the developed world (such as in the U.S.) looked at this and understood that this is what corporations and industries love and thrive on. We take our rights for granted so much that many of us don't even recognize what abuses look like, and that we should be outraged -- and afraid. If we aren't vigilant, these practices will return to our jobs as well. That includes solidarity with workers all over the world. Also this is limp-dick journalism. Are there no labor organizers to speak to? Local doctors to discuss the health effects? Why only talk to the positive and neutral parties? They didn't answer their own question. "Why do people do this?" Because they have no choice. As is usually the case in these situations.

The hard work some people do, that we don't even think about, to make something so small but pretty. I think there needs to be more safty precautions put in place for the workers safety...but I think it's something the workers would need to be asked about - what they think could make it safer and better for them. Too many times people who have never done a certain job decide how to make it safe...but in some way make the job harder or more dangerous in another way. It does make me appreciate something like these bangles and want some...something people, skill artisans, put so much work into.

Repent and follow Jesus my friend! Repenting doesn't mean confessing your sins to others, but to stop doing them altogether. Belief in Messiah alone is not enough to get you into heaven - Matthew 7:21-23, John 3:3, John 3:36 (ESV is the best translation for John 3:36). Contemplate how the Roman empire fulfilled the role of the beast from the sea in Revelation 13. Revelation 17 confirms that it is in fact Rome. From this we can conclude that A) Jesus is the Son of God and can predict the future or make it happen, B) The world leaders/nations/governments etc have been conspiring together for the last 3000+ years to accomplish the religion of the Israelites C) History as we know it is fake. You don't really need to speculate though because you can start a relationship with God and have proof. Call on the name of Jesus and pray for Him to intervene in your life. - Revelation 3:20 Revelation 6 1st Seal: White horse = Roman Empire conquering nations under Trajan 98-117 AD & Gospel spreading rapidly. 2nd Seal: Red horse, bloody civil wars with 32 different Emperors, most killed by the sword. 185-284 AD 3rd Seal: Black horse, economic despair from high taxes to pay for wars, farmers stopped growing. 200-250 AD 4th Seal: Pale horse, 1/4th of Romans died from famine, pestilence; at one point 5,000 dying per day. 250-300 AD 5th Seal: Diocletian persecuted Smyrna church era saints for ten years, blood crying out for vengeance. 303-312 AD 6th Seal: Political upheaval in the declining Roman Empire while the leaders battled each other. 313-395 AD Revelation 7 Sealing of 144,000, the saints, before trumpet war judgments, which led to the fall of the Roman Empire. Revelation 8 1st Trumpet: Alaric and the Goths attacked from the north, the path of hail, and set it on fire. 400-410 AD 2nd Trumpet: Genseric and the Vandals attacked the seas and coastlands, the blood of sailors in water. 425-470 AD 3rd Trumpet: Attila and the Huns scourged the Danube, Rhine & Po rivers area, dead bodies made water bitter. 451 AD 4th Trumpet: Odoacer and the Heruli caused the last Western Emperor (sun), Senate (moon) to lose power. 476 AD With the Western Roman Emperor (restrainer of 2 Thes. 2) removed; the son of perdition Popes took power. Revelation 9 Two woe judgments against the central 1/3rd and eastern 1/3rd of the Roman Empire. 612-1453 AD 5th Trumpet: Locust & scorpions point to Arabia, the rise of the Muslim army. Islam hides Gospel from Arabs. 612-762 AD 6th Trumpet: Turks released to attack Constantinople with large cannons (fire, smoke, brimstone). 1062-1453 AD Revelation 10 The little book is the printed Bible, which was needed after the Dark Ages when Scriptures were banned by Popes. Revelation 11 7th Trumpet: Martin Luther measured Roman Church; found that it’s an apostate church, not part of true temple. The two witnesses are the Scriptures and saints who proclaim the pure Gospel and testify against the antichrist Popes. Papal Church pronounced Christendom dead in 1514 AD. Silence for 3.5 years. Then Luther posted his 95 Thesis, which sparked the Protestant Reformation and brought the witnesses back to life. Millions of Catholics were saved. Revelation 12 Satan used the Roman Empire to try to wipe out the early Church, Satan was cast down as the Empire collapsed. Revelation 13 The antichrist beast Popes reigned in power 1,260 years, 538-1798, is the little horn of Daniel 7, son of perdition. The false prophet Jesuit Superior General rose to power from land (earth) of Vatican and has created many deceptions. Revelation 14 Points to great harvest during the Protestant Reformation & wrath on Catholic countries who obey antichrist Pope. Revelation 15 Overcoming saints victorious over the beast. Prelude to 7 vials and judgment on those who support Papal Rome. Revelation 16 1st Vial: The foul sore of atheism was poured out on Catholic France, leaving them with no hope, led to revolution. 2nd Vial: The French Revolution started in 1793, killed 250,000, as France had obeyed the Pope and killed saints. 3rd Vial: The French Revolution spread to rural areas of France, where Protestants had been killed in river areas. 4th Vial: The bloody Napoleonic wars shed the blood of countries who had revered and obeyed the antichrist Pope. 5th Vial: Judgment on the seat of the beast. Papal States invaded in 1798, Pope imprisoned, removed from power. 6th Vial: The Turks vast domain dried up, they were only left with Turkey. They lost control of Palestine in 1917 AD, Israel became a nation again in 1948

If your friends are doing this as a hobby and coughing please tell them to get an exhaust fan meant for exchanging a large amount of air and install it in a window pointing out. Then light a cigarette and if someone else in the room can smell the smoke the fan is not strong enough to exhaust the glass fumes. I live in California and I have been in a lot of shops where they make glass pipes and the most important thing other than not getting burned is to make sure you are not breathing the fumes at all.

Chronic exposure to silica dust causes a lovely condition called silicosis. Its essentially your lungs losing elasticity over time, your lungs basically scar over more and more making it harder and harder to breathe. It takes years to develop, but since its just an accumulation of damage from breathing the dust, anyone who works here for any decent amount of time has this damage to some degree. Its pretty much unavoidable. This is like the equivalent of working with lead or cancer causing chemicals or radium without protection. And yes, all you really need to combat it is proper respiratory protection, because the dust is only really dangerous when breathed in (eye stuff aside). Its mechanical damage, its not like its poisonous or anything. The way we deal with this issue in ceramic studios is literally just to constantly flood the floors with lots of water and wash them every day. If its wet and cant disperse into the air, its harmless. These people will have significantly shortened lives, from something that is totally preventable with proper ppe. Just to make jewelry...

There are distinct differences between crystalline and amorphous silica. Prolonged exposure to crystalline silica can cause silicosis, while the dangers with amorphous silica is less severe. Amorphous silica is one the most abundant elements on earth, it's in the soil, rocks, and part of the air we all breath. While there is undoubtedly at least some crystalline silica at this glass factory, a majority of the silica is amorphous. There is a greater risk of silicosis for the workers than people not working there but, it is hardly the greatest risk to the workers. A complete lack of enforcement of even the simplest personal protective equipment is horrible. The boss should tell the employees to wear the PPE or go home. He doesn't want the PPE because it cuts into his production and profits.

Yea I work with clay and potters lung is a serious thing that can happen. When I first started working with clay no one told me about it. I actually learned about it from freaking YouTube!!!!! Not even in my college class for Cermaics did they tell me about it. Now I go to the college class with my own respirator. But they do keep the dust down. If we have to sand we do it outside the studio and all grinding is done wet. I probably have some damage because of the years of not knowing but now I do and I take the precautions I can from further issues.

May more people spread the awareness of how these factory workers are treated. I never liked wearing these bangles when I was younger and would watch as they would easily break and the glass would harm my wrists often causing cuts. Now learning this information I will do my part to educate others and hopefully one day bring about the changes needed to end this kind of mass exploitation. ❤️

@The Hawk's Eye I’m not giving u permission dear, I’m only saying don’t FORCE your preferences on ANYBODY. Even jewel smiths didn’t have work during covid, they are also artisans who craft incredibly beautiful jewellery. I can choose to buy what I want, and I prefer to go to the jewel smith of my choice and buy customised stuff directly from him. Stop imposing your “utterly ego stricken foolishness”. Your ego was so fragile you couldn’t handle the fact that somebody preferred a different material to glass. Edit - speaking of QUALITY, gold is the best, “silver” comes next, “copper” comes after that. With gold polish, it won’t tarnish also. These last for GENERATIONS with polishes every now and then. Spend as per your pocket size and PREFERENCE

@Ranjitha Girish It's not like I need your permission to buy them. You are only proving that those people, who do not like glass bangles are the only ones rushing to denounce the business itself. Most of the vendors in this market are struggling. The sale in last two decades have come down to 60%. They can use some patronage instead of people wanting to snatch their bread and butter. Less rigid glass mixtures are more costly as they have greater flex which makes them stronger and more resistant to breakage. Spend more and get stronger glass bangle. Spend less and get cheaper more fragile ones. It's that simple. I have glass bangles that are with me for 15-20years. I still have one on my wrist that's there for three years. That's because I do not buy kachcha glass bangles. I pay for quality.

@The Hawk's Eye of course I use lac bangles during occasions and it’s MUCH MUCH better than the glass bangles in terms of strength. No it’s not driven by ego, rather than it’s very quality. For daily wear, I CHOOSE copper plated gold bangles, affordable and very durable. Needs a polish once in 2 years. No fear of it getting stolen also. If you can read “ I NEVER SAID DONT MANUFACTURE GLASS BANGLES”, I only said “I PREFER OTHER MATERIALS TO IT” If you like glass bangles so much, buy as many as you wish OR even start manufacturing it.

So if we are not buying it will affect their life.Its better to give proper education about the safety measurements in their work

So many issues can be resolved in this factory, just like they switched from coal to gas, they must bring in discipline approach furnace from left, leave from right. They desperately need process improvement. They need safety guidelines so that they get used to wearing protective gear - it can't be optional. Factory owners must be made responsible to provide quality safety material.

@ANPC 5493 Even if you say to the companies "You're responsible for the medical costs of those working under you" it won't change much. Child labour is illegal, and yet we see it right there. It would need to actually be enforced for it to have any semblance of effect and not have gaping loopholes. And even if you do enforce it, they'd find some other way, such as saying "well since I need to pay for your medical costs, I'll need to keep some of your money." Ultimately, it'd end up much like the US health insurance system, except even worse.

You might not have seen the video properly. All the safety equipment are provided to the workers from boots to breather to gloves. But the workers ditch them saying they can't "feel" the touch of iron rods etc. They also opposed the machines. An owner can't do much if you have such workforce. Cut the owner some slack.

Firozabad's economy is totally crippling starting from the last decade. The demand has decreased exponentially as so called modern Indian women just don't like it. They think its old fashioned and they say that only villagers would want to wear these. And now the business only flows during big festivals. And that is around only 4 times a year. I can tell this from first hand experience, I am from Firozabad. And my father owns a shop that sells the raw material which is used to make designs on the otherwise simple glass bangles.

Easy they will lose the job, especially nowadays it is tough even for people with higher educations certificates get a job. Even if they can complain, it just falls to deaf ears.

Billions of people globally underestimate how hardworking Indians are as India surprises me each day on how far they have to risk their lives to create so many handmade inventions to sell to many tourists and their own people. As an American whom is into art and even designed a few t-shirts myself out of marker and even super glue that could possibly injure my skin as an artistic hobby, I was so engaged watching this short documentary as it really is daunting to see how the Indian men have to face third-degree burns just to earn around $5 a day to feed their own families. A lot of us Americans definitely take material objects for granted as it's a lot of labor on the people that designs our clothes along other material objects we would want to buy as tourists. I hope to Buddha Vimal and his daughters are still doing okay to this day by being both financially & mentally stable as Vimal is able to have his family going to school as I know for a fact education is really crucial in the Subcontinent and all the workers still being safe from creating the bangles. Also, I totally agree with *Masood Shaikh* in the comments section as it made my palms sweaty just seeing how the workers have lack of protection in extreme temps being that their skin is exposed to the shattered glasses and even the furnace itself that could easily put their lives at risk.

The major risk is that the factory is overcrowded, had the place been more ventilated, much bigger with the furnaces spaced apart then the chances of a worker pouring the molten glass onto another guy would reduce drastically.

This video never really answers the question it poses in the title... _why_ do so many people risk their lives, using outdated and unsafe work practices, to produce a cheap consumable that doesn't even return enough profit to provide a living wage for the artisans? I suggest the reason it never gets around to properly answering the question, is because the _answer_ is both disquieting and deeply irrational. They do it because they do it... because it is what they and their families have done for generations, and they can't imagine an alternative. This video is a window on to why so many in India live in the most dire poverty -- despite their willingness to work very hard -- and why they will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. I've heard of _folie à deux,_ but this is like _folie pour beaucoup._

I am astonished by this video because I've been in many rooms with glass blowers in California that were properly ventilated where people were not able to smell or breathe the melting glass fumes at all, and the glass blowers were also very careful if glass broke because in rooms of glass, glass can break. It is not that difficult to make things out of glass safely. One of my friend's children built his own glass blowing shop in his mom's garage when he was 15 and started making glass pipes and selling them to smoke shops. I think he just copied what he saw other people doing but like the other glass blowers they cut a hole in the wall and installed the fan in the wall like you'd install a window. Then you light an incense stick or a cigarette or something. If someone else in the room can smell the smoke, then the fan is not good enough to vent the glass fumes. You are not supposed to breathe that stuff in at all. They are doing it the wrong way in your video. The fans are just in the room blowing it all around. One of my friends in California died of lung cancer. He was very young, in his early 30s. The doctor told him that it may have been caused by him blowing glass in a way where it wasn't properly ventilated. He lived on the top of a hill in the mountains where it was very windy. For years, he made glass pipes in his yard thinking the wind was enough ventilation. I have seen a lot of shocking and dangerous things in your videos but this one is possibly one of the worst. You should use the money you make from this video to help those people.

As I belong to firozabad , firozabad is a district in state of Uttar Pradesh in India , largely populated state in country . Firozabad known for bangle making in India . this documentary sums up the whole process of bangles making while I am adding to it for more ground reality . Positive thing is, it gives jobs to workers who are illiterate and a secondary source of income while working in those factories other than primary source of agriculture and dairy . Many households depends on these factories . Negative impact is firstly and most important is health issues , I have seen people working hard , they rise early in morning at 4 am and comes in evening at home . Their hands are rough and tough , eyes are swollen sometimes , their hand palms feels like burns , their all health is burnt out in these factories working from childhood to adulthood to prime age . What they earn in MONETARY sense in whole life is just the living on those little wages . Pollution and smell of chemical feels like suffocating , air not in good quality . As one can see effect on tajmahal white sand marble . Child labour is banned but in reality I see children goes to factories for working and do work like giving water to workers and some for more money take a part time job of bangle making . And in mostly near by houses one can see girl and boys helping to their parents as shown in video working in polishing bangle and decorating and designing those bangles for extra help to their parents in monetary. As well factory owners are making hefty profits , feels like living in medieval industrial phase of industry where owner of factory exploiting those workers . Personally I feel bad that these only industries have been set up as giving no other options to workers in large for alternative Choice of work .or thier should be reform in these industries like training while working in these hazardous factories .and low pollution which makes for whole district suffer in health. I wish their will another industrial set up or any other work which can help people in earn higher wage as well as make Environment for good health , or one day if I got chance to develop my district I will sure make efforts for improving condition of people living in district .

Was I the only one who didn't know bangles were made from glass? I always assumed they were made from thin strips of painted and decorated metal. Eye opening video.

@Christye There was some miscommunication here. A huge one probably. People may playfully and lightly bang the wrists to make a musical sound for fun or during dancing etc. But NO they do not break them at wedding. Married women keep them on till death and traditionally never kept their wrists empty. Breaking the bangles, Intentionally, is considered a show of deep sorrow or mourning. Widows do that when mourning the death of the husband. Although anyone can wear bangles, Married, unmarried, many widows didn't wear glass bangles once they were widowed. At least till the mourning period.
