What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means I will be able to buy oxen and an ox plough to support in my cultivation activity. I also hope to marry and finally settle with a wife at home using this same money.
What is the happiest part of your day?
I am happiest in the noon time when I have had a meal. I will have been satisfied and stroger. I am able to take my medicine without any issues.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship that I am faced with is sickness. I am an epleptic case. I take medicine every day but some times the drugs get finished and I don't have money to buy more. No one helps me in this. At times I am forced to do casual labour to atleased raise some money that can support me.
