The wage was very low; I could not even feed my three children with at least bread and milk. My daughter asked me one day, ‘Why you gave birth to me if you are not able to feed me properly?’ I still don’t have an answer to this question. I even pledged my mangalasutra (wedding necklace much like a wedding ring) to pay my children’s school examination fees but it was still not enough.
