I quit school after the ninth standard. I had failed my exams. I spent time looking after my sister’s children a few years and then got married. Everybody around me was getting married. Now I have two children. I’m 30. You don’t believe me? Well, you are right. I’m 27. When I walk through this dirt amidst leeches and worms, I wish I had studied. My life would have been different.
