It was work from outside; we had to break open the almond shells to extract almonds from them. This is what I did as a kid to help our mother. You know you have these shells which cover the almond in its raw form; we would have to break those open and get the almonds out and give it to them. It was hard work. So if they would give us 10kgs to break open, then they would weigh it when we gave it back. They would weigh the shells separately and the almonds separate. And then accordingly they would give us money. All of us – my 3 brothers and sisters and my mother, we would all do this. We would get 30Ps per kilo.
