Burlak is not a just profession, but a real cultural phenomen, which is strongly important to imageine Russian’s culture.
The point of burlak’s work were: one third of the year is seasonly work, and two thirds — is a rest. Just only a few months of very hard work, incredibly bad life’s conditions, but in the rest of times: as much fun and courage as hard and painful it was! There is a point of nowdays Russian managment, based two models: emergency and stagnation.
Burlak is an typical type of a true leader. He has a great power and always goes against the current. Its a personification of a realy hard work for a pulling up boats by the Volga-river(and as you know «No sweet without sweat»).
