“It has only been a week that I have started working. There is a lot of workload. I start working at 7.30 in the morning, and end at around 7.30 to 8 in the evening. I have heard that sometimes you have to work here on Fridays too.
Although it is my first week here, I have taken a leave today. My feet are hurting. The lid of one of the machines fell on my feet yesterday. A colleague sitting next to me helped me clean up the wound with an antiseptic liquid. It’s not a major injury, but it still hurts a little. I’m not ready to go back today.
I applied here on my own and joined as a helper. I did not continue my education beyond class five. Had I studied more, I would’ve been able to work in a better place perhaps.”
