"When I was young there was not much development, there was not enough to eat. But now, maybe because of the government, times have changed a lot. Things are much better now. One of my sons has a job. If he rises to a good post it will be good. The other one works as a carpenter. Earlier there were no schools. It has been about twelve to fifteen years since the school has started. Going to Saspol or Khaltse takes a lot of time and there was no bridge at the time. Education is there for the new generation now, during my time such facilities were not available."
