URBAN AGRICULTURE

Image ID: 114166677

Caption : Kolkata: Bablu Jana is nurturing Chinese vegetable plants on the 17 cottah of land owned by him at Dhapa, by the side of the EM Bypass in Kolkata on Thursday. Though their family has been in the farming profession for the last three generations, Bablu?s two sons are not very keen to continue with it as the returns are too little to meet their modern city lifestyle. Dhapa used to be the city?s dumping ground till recently. According to Bablu, yield on the patta land had been satisfactory even few years back but the disappearance of water-bodies due to real estate boom have led to water scarcity for his crops. Lack of government support adds to his owes. While the city is spreading fast with rapid growth in population, farmers like him are facing the continuous threat to give up their lands by land sharks to make way for high-rise buildings and that too at throwaway prices. Bablu does not know how long he would be able to hold on to this piece of ancestral land and continue with farming. Photo: Arunangsu Roy Chowdhury March 03, 2009.
