Salyan-  An elderly from Majhakada named Belkumari Pun – 72 has come to Kathmandu to work in a brick factory. She chose to work in a brick factory because she couldn’t sustain her daily life due to her poor economic condition, she said.

She was off to Kathmandu on Monday with her relative after she didn’t even have a place to stay. After her husband’s death, she had been living off of sold property until her everything was sold and was compelled to live with her daughter for a few years.

She felt uncomfortable to live with her daughter and she had to choose to work as a labor in a Brick factory and take care of her disabled son. “I was at Ruru, India last year and managed to earn Rs. 14000 from work”, she said. “I have already been to many places to work as a labor before that.”

She says she had to work at this age since there is no one to earn in her family. With her wrinkled face, sunken eyes and fallen teeth, she said, “I can still work with others. I cannot be dependent to my married daughter. How hard could working in a brick factory be when I have already been to Ruru to work?”
