We were so happy to meet a passionate traditional farmer, who had a deep desire in bringing changes in the farming sectors to generate more income. Even though he had to stopped his education in class 4 and assisted his parents in agricultural works at his young age, but yet he had an avid interest in science and dedicated his life to flower cultivation with natural technics. Since he believes that flowers play a vital role in the life of a human from birth to death. We had one hour talk, knowing his passion and his invention, gained impressive knowledge.
