“I have been doing this job for 40 years. When my father passed away I started working immediately to help people. There were few people who were doing this job, each of them was located in a different village. They are all dead now except for me. Relocating broken arms and legs was something that I learned from my father. I have been working for many years and I have never hurt anyone, whenever I didn’t have the knowledge to treat someone, I have sent them to the doctor. My house has been always crowded with people in recent years, people come for medicine at midnight. I have never cared about money, I only want to help people, and that’s why I want to teach my kids to do the same thing, but they don’t like the work unfortunately. I have lost my wife several years ago, but I have never felt alone due to my job. I don’t really want much more from God, as long as people are comfortable with me then I am doing well”.
