The wheat is over? There is nothing left?
That was all, there is nothing left.
Everything was taken by debtors. Everyone took one or two bags.
Oh, God! This will not suffice till the end of the year. Now, we have to borrow from people again. And to top it all, he is also ill.
God is kind.
Do not worry yourself, woman. I will think of some way by next year.
My man, God willing, you will.
God willing. Shirin. Hey, Shirin. Fill up the pitcher so that I can freshen up, my child.
Hey, hey, hey! Go out and play my child.
Bless you, my child.
Shirin's father, take care of the cow, it is not in good health. Get up, child.
Forget it. It might die like the other one that is our only surviving source.
What is the end of it, my man?
God is kind.
Dad! They say they have given some medicine to Haji's cow in Down Qalah and it is doing well now.
Who has given the medicine?
I don't know. They say someone has come from the provinces.
This morning, they again announced in the mosque that a veterinarian doctor has come to the area. There is no God but God.
I do not quite know if I should take the cow to him or to bring him to the cow here.
Dad, first, you go alone.
You are right my child. I will go in the morning.
