Be it sowing, reaping or selling the crops in the local market, the
women of Sarapta village are capable of handling it all by themselves.
“We made a group, an association. Within an acre of land we grow a
variety of crops. We are putting a lot of hard work into farming. We
also go to the market to sell our produce. We are reaping considerable
profits because we are working in a group,” said Ramrati, the head of
one such group.
Each group consists of eight to twelve members. All of them work
together and grow a variety of crops, including paddy, sugarcane,
pulses and vegetables.
“We use the money for our families, especially for our children. We
grow vegetables and other crops. If the government helps us in our
venture, it would be good,” said Arti, a member.
The investments are also collective and the profits are shared
amongst the women. The women have been growing their crops in a
scientific manner, and the fields do not remain barren at any time.
The crops are rotated, which helps in keeping the soil nutrients intact.
There are twelve such groups in the village. (ANI)Wealth

The Tree That Acted Like a Hunter
Once upon a time, there was an antelope who
lived in the deep forest. He ate the fruits that fell from the trees. There was
one tree that had become his favorite.
In the same area there was a hunter who
captured and killed antelopes and deer. He put down fruit as bait under a tree.
Then he waited, hiding in the branches above. He held a rope noose hanging down
to the ground around the fruits. When an animal ate the fruit, the hunter
tightened the noose and caught him.
Early one morning the antelope came to his
favorite tree in search of fruits to eat. He did not see that the hunter was
hiding in it, with his noose-trap ready. Even though he was hungry, the
antelope was very careful. He was on the lookout for any possible danger. He
saw the delicious looking ripe fruits at the foot of his favorite tree. He
wondered why no animal had yet eaten any, and so he was afraid something was
The hiding hunter saw the antelope approaching
from a distance. Seeing him stop and take great care, he was afraid he would
not be able to trap him. He was so anxious that he began throwing fruits in the
direction of the antelope, trying to lure him into coming closer.
But this was a pretty smart antelope. He knew
that fruits only fall straight down when they fall from trees. Since these
fruits were flying towards him, he knew there was danger. So he examined the
tree itself very carefully, and saw the hunter in the branches. However, he
pretended not to see him.
He spoke in the direction of the tree.
“Oh my dear fruit tree, you used to give me your fruits by letting them
fall straight down to the ground. Now, throwing them towards me, you do not act
at all like a tree! Since you have changed your habits, I too will change mine.
I will get my fruits from a different tree from now on, one that still acts
like a tree!”
The hunter realized his mistake and saw that
the antelope had outsmarted him. This angered him and he yelled out, “You
may escape me this time, you clever antelope, but I’ll get you next time for
The antelope realized that, by getting so
angry, the hunter had given himself away a second time. So he spoke in the direction
of the tree again. “Not only don’t you act like a tree, but you act like a
hunter! You foolish humans, who live by killing animals. You do not understand
that killing the innocent brings harm also to you, both in this life and by
rebirth in a hell world. It is clear that we antelopes are far wiser than you.
We eat fruits, we remain innocent of killing others, and we avoid the harmful
So saying, the careful antelope leaped into
the thick forest and was gone.
The moral is: The wise remain innocent.
