Poor yet Honest
Old lady makes ends meet
Unmarried Kurumba, 80 plus, leads a lonely life. She has a small house built with the financial assistance from government. Her only income is from the sale of groom made of coconut leaf ribs. She collects coco-leaves from uninhabited coconut plantations. The broom is sold to households as per order. Whenever she has no cash to buy provisions, the grocery shop keeper near her house gives on credit as he is sure she will pay on promised date.
