“I’m seventy years old and I have nine kids. Ever since I left Ababaile, I haven’t experienced happiness. Living in the city is difficult, and it’s very expensive, and it’s only my wife and I together and I can’t do much work. Even now, if someone buy’s me a cow, I’ll go back to the wilderness, you can at least survive eating natural food. The wilderness is blessed, it’s not the same as here! In the cities, God has become angry from everyone due to all the crimes and sins going on. Villagers don’t even know how to sin. We used to collect loads of spear thistles (Kingr), but you can’t even see it in farmlands now. I remember when we used to farm, we neither saw reduction in water resources, nor diseases hitting the soil. Unfortunately, everything’s changed now.”
