Every family member used to be busy for this or that activities from morning till night. There was so much work in agriculture that five years child started working for the family. People used to wake up before down. They used to finish grinding , thrassing, milking etc before sunrise. People used to forest or do agriculture work with sunrise. After lunch, there was works for everybody till night. At home in night too, there was work.
The work used to change with season.
After so many centuries after Ashoka rule, Garhwalis started reaping fruits of their hard work. Due to heavy tax or other reasons, people used to do that much work that was sufficient for daily feeding. In British rule, people started increasing productivities in each segment. People were eager for cooperating each other in farm works.
