Shocking! Employees of this govt office in Bihar have to wear helmets at work, here’s why

Wearing a helmet to save yourself from any injuries while driving a bike on road is one thing, so is wearing a helmet while washing the windows of a skyrise, but wearing a helmet to protect yourself while doing a desk job -- well, we can say such thing can only happen in India!

In India, though people just love getting into government jobs, working in government offices can often entail a lot of hardships. From fighting for resources to working in remote areas, everything might now be glossy or filled with perks. In fact, officials in a Bihar government office have to wear helmets throughout the day! Well, not that they are all bikers and love doing daredevil stunts, but it’s a measure to save their head from dripping water from the ceiling. And you may never know, but it could also save them from a major accident, as any moment a chunk of the ceiling may fall injuring someone’s head.

Not just employees but the visitors too prefer to protect their heads while entering this office located in East Champaran district, reported News 18.

Lalan and Parvej Ahmad who work in the land records department of the office informed that many members of the office staff have already been injured when parts of the roof fell on them. And that’s how they all decided to choose this form of safety measure.

“This is quite an old building. Walls and the roof of the building are in a very bad shape. Water starts trickling the moment it rains. The roof can cave in any day. Since we can’t be absent from our duties, we all decided to wear helmets,” they said.

Wearing a helmet to save yourself from any injuries while driving a bike on road is one thing, so is wearing a helmet while washing the windows of a skyrise, but wearing a helmet to protect yourself while doing a desk job — well, we can say such thing can only happen in India!

              Yeh ho raha hai desh ka vikas. Jai ho modi ji Aur Nitish ki. Agar building ke neeche dab kar mar gaye to compensation mil jayega. Neta ji do ghadiyali ansu bha denge. Bhakt modi ko election na jetane ka rag aalapene. Agar yahi hal ek Mandir ya masjid Ka Hota to kitna chanda aa Gaya hota. DESH loogon se Hota hai Aur unki soch ko dikhata hai. Tirupati ki daily kamai 7 crore hai. Uspase ka sahi istemal ho to desh ka udhar ho jaye

                  Most government buildings in Bihar are in dilapidated condition. Local newspapers often publish pictures of such buildings, quarters and hostels. I see trees coming out of building side walls. Their root have gone deep in the ground and size of such trees make clear that the tree is at least 10-15 years old.

                    Hope land records are safe. The infrastructure in poor condition may be deliberate to destroy land records of original owners.
