It is a custom for women to wear jasmine chain on their head...women pick jasmine flowers early in the morning form the garden. While talking to them, I found that the daily wages for plucking is not enough for a full meal.
These women do it all the days for about nine months! And yet, they dot have enough to make a living! It is a paradox of our times! At least India, the have nots do not move up the social ladder in good proportion!
