Remembering god

Sudesh Devi lights an earthen lamp at the altar of the family deity. Hands folded, head bowed, and a quick prayer for the family's well-being.

Jhanjharia tells me he visits the temple near his house for a few minutes every day.

"I should be spending more time worshipping, remembering god. Most people in their old age spend more time on religious matters. But I don't have much time, I have to work hard on my farm."
