My husband died so I became a coolie in his place, need to work for family...

My husband died last year since then I am working here as coolie. I am from Murkoni village in Abhanpur tehsil of Raipur district in Chhattisgarh say Rajkumari in a conversation with Pavan at Raipur railway station. We work here from 9 to 5. It is difficult but we need to do it for our livelihood. Railway administration cooperates with us. Kailashwati is working here from 3 years. She says if we don’t work then how will our family survive. We like it or not we need to do this work to survive. Pavan@9479003193.
