Baga is from Kalim village in Udaipur. He is 60-year-old and has got old-age pension only once. His wife has also got old-age pension only once.

Baga has five bighas of land which is tilled by his son. Baga cannot work since his hands are affected by leprosy. His wife also cannot work. Thus, the couple often ends up borrowing. They have one son who lives separately.
“My son does not help me much. I want regular pension and a higher amount so that we need not borrow.”
