A time when workers fought each other for the metal tokens thrown by contractors and builders, to get jobs for an earlier day. Later in the story which moves to the 1940s and 50s, the overgrown port of Kochi is a breeding ground for a mafia consisting of contractors, capitalists and allied union leaders.
