“My kids will be getting back to school this June and I’m really happy about it. I grow paddy and I sell fish, I make about ₹300 profit a day and most of that goes into the savings for my kids education. I haven’t studied much but I want my kids to get their education. Sometimes for medical emergencies I’m forced to dip into my kids savings but I try to make up. I have regrets and I’m happy with my life.” Ram Das, paddy farmer and fish seller. Kamrup, Assam
