NALBARI, May 1 - A student of Udaypur village in Nalbari district recently started an agriculture farm at Gobradal with the help of five friends. They raised various crops in the 25-bigha plot during the rabi season and reaped rich benefits.
Bhabajit Bezbaruah, and his friends � Dhiman Sarma, Biswajit Bharali, Matleb Ali, Deraj Ali and Hargovinda Talukdar � have succeeded in starting a green revolution in the area. The surplus production of rabi crops and mustard oil seeds encouraged the youths to do something more in this sector.
This time, the youths managed to produce a good number of pumpkins in their farm. However, due to the lockdown during the peak harvest season, the youths suffered a huge loss as most of the produce wasted away in the field.
However, Bhabajit, who is also a student leader, took the initiative to distribute pumpkins and other vegetables among the poor and needy people.
Bhabajit told this correspondent that they distributed pumpkins and vegetables among 200 families. �We forgot our loss and felt proud while distributing the vegetables among the poor families,� he said. The initiative of the youths has been highly appreciated by the locals during this crisis.
