Families join forces to plant their paddy

Community paddy transplantation is an age old practice in Assam, which has depleted to a great extent in the last few years. To counter this, all the 120 farm families of Majpara village of Goalpara district of Assam are continuing the tradition of community paddy transplantation in community land. This year it was done on morning hours of 3rd August, where both men and women of all the families participated in different activities of uprooting from seedbed, carrying to field and transplantation in a festive mood.
