I am as old as this 20 BS is. All my life, I sewed clothes. I had a good life, with handful of clients. Some would offer me grains and some would provide cash. But three years back, I had an accident during a relative’s wedding. Our bus collapsed and I was the only person who luckily survived but with a heavy injury. And to add salt to my wounds, that catastrophic earthquake occured. We lost our home and all our belongings. I somehow managed to survive but life is getting tough every single day. All my children and grandchildren migrated to cities for their living but I am struggling here everyday.
She is my only companion, you should also include her in the picture. (Chhabiram Pariyar, 73, Rupakot Tanahun)
