“We would wake up at 2 o’clock in the morning and start mixing the sand with water. With no breaks until 1 in the afternoon for an hour, we would again start working,” Kala says, adding tht work would go on till 10 pm.
“While we slogged, the kids were asked to take the dried bricks and demould them,” Kala adds.
