Bhawana Biswakarma’s husband is abroad for labour works. Though her husband earns enough for the family, she wanted to be involved in something on her own and started a tailoring shop. But that didn’t help her earn adequate. She had a lot of spare time in spite of the shop and so she involved herself in commercial vegetable farming. That not only utilized her spare time but also helped in earning more than she ever expected. These days, Bhawana spends her morning and late afternoons on the farm and afternoons in Rupa B.K. tailoring. She says, “I am very busy and active these days and my earning is also good.”
