Mention any two difficulties faced by the bangle sellers of Firozahad.

Bangle makers are born in poverty, live in poverty and die in poverty. For generations, people have been in this trade, but they have not been able to improve their living conditions. They have to work under inhuman conditions. They have to work under flickering oil lamps. Their eyes get used to darkness and they lose their eyesight even before they are adults. They work hard all day before furnaces with high temperature. In spite of the hard work, they get a meagre profit. Their houses have crumbling walls, wobbly doors and no windows. They are over-crowded with humans and animals.
