“I was forced to work as a keymaker as it’s our family’s traditional occupation. I was 12 years old then, so I couldn’t refuse. Now, the situation is that my family needs my support more than ever, so I cannot leave this work even if I want to.”
“Why do you say that?”
“Because that would be running away from my responsibilities. I won’t be able to live like that….Waheguru is watching.”
