A profession that is perishing

The profession of clock mending is an old one in Sudan.But,,, alas that job is perishing. Even the habit of having a watch is perishing. Who needs a watch now? The digital watch is everywhere, on the mobile phones, on the T.V screens.

On the other side the clock mender “nicknamed” in Sudan as “Saati”, which literally means “The watch man” is losing his old job. Who is to blame for that?! This profession is the victim of the revolution of communications.
