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.
