Taami was a young man whose life has been full of sorrows and grief. His parents had been poor and this affected his upbringing. His four younger sisters were beautiful but poverty has managed to forcibly darken their fair skins, and their faces looked like aged ladies even though they were all teen aged. None of them were able to complete their primary school education in their hometown, except Taami. The youngest sister of thirteen years was pregnant for a ‘galamseyer’ (surface miner) from the nearby town and the parents have been speechless about the matter because the young ‘galamseyer’ seem to be rich and therefore uses the money to influence Taami’s parents, whose Christian values they have compromised under the weight of poverty.
