Teja Ram Sankhla and his wife Rami Devi used to sell vegetables in a small town called Sojat in Pali district of Rajasthan. They used to live in a joint family in their ancestral house along with their three children. Soon they felt that they needed to earn more to support the family and hence Teja Ram started working in a henna-making factory, where he would load and unload cartons full of henna products. His wife too took up a job at a construction site. One of their primary goals in life was to build a house of their own. Hence they borrowed funds from a moneylender and bought a parcel of land.
