Read the text carefully and answer the questions following it:
Bulbul collects rubbish from the Sankar area in Dhaka. Every morning, he wakes up at 5 o’clock and walks along the streets of Sankar to collect rubbish. People of Sankar put their rubbish in plastic bins and leave them in front of their houses. Bulbul walks from door to door to collect them. Sometime the bins are very dirty and they smell bad. But Bulbul does not mind. He takes out everything from the bins and puts them in a large plastic bag. He believes that all jobs are important. He works hard every day to keep this area clean.
Last month Bulbul was sick for two days. So, he could not come to collect rubbish. The people of Sankar were in trouble. They got piles of rubbish waiting in front of their houses. The whole area became dirty and unhygienic. When Bulbul got well, he came back to Sankar. He collects everything from all the bins. Bulbul does not want to fall sick again. He realizes if he stops working even for few days only, the whole area will turn into a big dustbin.
