How do you earn a living? “Each of my cows gives 6 litres of milk a day and the dairy buys it for Rs 23-24 per litre and every ten days I get Rs 2800-3000. If there are rains then I don’t have to buy the feed which costs me Rs 650 every ten days. I have left my sons by themselves, they earn and run their families and I run mine.” Do you think what you earn is enough? “If you are an alcoholic then it definitely is not sufficient, if you earn Rs 300 and drink for Rs 500 it’s foolish. You have to spend according to your needs.” Sri Sundaram, Veerangipuram, Tamil Nadu.
