In a junior college in Assam’s Udalgiri district, students are learning how to sow paddy as a part of their practical class to learn the traditional life of a farmer.
On July 7 at Sapekhaiti Village of the district, the higher secondary first and second-year students of Aspire Junior College participated in sowing crops, which the authorities believe can make the children more skillful and give a taste of a farmer’s life.

“It’s a part of the students’ practical class. The college has made it a part of the curriculum to make students understand and connect to rural lives and to understand the efforts of farmers,” Principal Maihursa Boro told The News Mill.
For a practical experience in farming, the junior college took their students, who were delightfully donned in school uniforms, to a nearby paddy field in the village. The activity has gone viral on social media and is winning hearts.
“We are trying to do our best for all-round development of our students and aimed at exposing students to experience the traditional rural and clumsy life of a farmer,” said Jayanta K Nath, director, admission & marketing at Aspire Group of Institutes, as mentioned by the report.
