“The Triumph Of Labour !”   11 comments

With firm hands, sturdy legs and chiseled bodies labourers have to stretch every sinew to make sure the hearth, back home, burns. Ignoring the pangs of their bodies, their steely resolve help shape the future of the nation even as their futures remain wrapped in mystery. The tribe, ever ready to get their hands dirty, toils hard as the nation conquers new heights. Nevertheless, they remain confined to fetters !

    "BY THE SWEAT OF OUR BROWS, STRENGTH OF OUR BACKS AND THE COURAGE OF OUR HEARTS !"

“BY THE SWEAT OF OUR BROWS, STRENGTH OF OUR BACKS AND THE COURAGE OF OUR HEARTS !”

Still wondering from where would have the legendary DEVI PRASAD ROY CHOUDURY got his models for his statue because it looks as if the four men were born to fulfill this great endeavor !

THE TRIUMPH OF  LABOUR” by DEVI PRASAD ROY CHOUDURY was unveiled by the then Governor Madras SHRI BISHNURAM MEDHI in the presence of K.KAMARAJ, the then Chief Minister of Madras, on 25-01-1959.

  1. Nation moves on cerebral labor too. But it is more difficult to depict and less correct politically.

    • Thank you for the comment sir !
      I think that the cerebral guys get their due…
      But the ones at the bottom of the pile with lax labour laws and innovations staring at them just vegetate !!
      Thanks for visiting !!

  2. Awesome! “The triumph of labor” sounds so apt. Triumph shall come into the share of only the Labor. This rule may seem failing these days but the ultimate truth remains unchanged and every devil gets his due. That’s an awesome image used here… so suitably put up over here… 🙂

    • Yes Mam,
      One among the many statues alongside the promenade of Marina Beach.. This one is right opposite to the Madras university building… I dont really know which end of the beach is it… But at one end we have the triumph of labour statue and the other end we have Mahatma’s … and in between there are many…..

  4. ‘The triumph of labour’ sounds so good. However, most of the people doing manual labour never get their due.
