Women are busy transplanting paddy saplings. This involves back breaking work, as women have to endure many hours hunched on their backs. This is a work that is most often done by women. They get paid only Rs. 110-120 (less than $3) per day. The men are often employed to work the machines and tractors and get paid Rs 200 for a day's work. The economy of Jawadhu hills depends on agriculture and related jobs. 95% people are employed in farm work.
