Every morning, 70-year-old Moti Singh wakes up before dawn to milk his water buffalo and sell the milk at the market.
He works on his small piece of land until the afternoon, and then goes to the forest to collect wood to build a fire in the evening. The money he makes is barely enough to feed his wife, daughter-in-law, and two grandsons.
This is not the age for Moti Singh to be working so much, but he has no other option. He should be relaxing and enjoying time with his grandkids, but instead he is working day-in and day-out to make sure there is food on the table.
Many years back, his daughter died at the age of 28, and his 30-year-old son became sick soon after. Hoping not to have the same outcome as his daughter, Moti Singh took his son to India for treatment.
For a farmer’s family, it wasn’t an easy endeavor to travel that far, and Moti Singh sold almost all of his land to pay for the journey and his medical care.
Unfortunately, the doctors were not able to cure his son, and he passed away.
