(Jashpur) Chhattisgarh [India], Dec. 27 (ANI): It would be unbelievable to know that people who earn their livelihood by cutting trees in forest can turn into billionaires and millionaires. Pahadi tribals residing in Sanna Jungle, which is 60 kilometres away from Chhattisgarh's Jashpur district, are living a lavish life through their agricultural work. A tribal told ANI that they have been doing agriculture work for the past year. "Earlier, due to brokers we had to face losses and we could earn only 10 to 15 percent profit," a tribal told ANI. "Earlier, we were not aware of anything, we didn't even know about vegetables and food grains, but with the help of government and NGOs, we have come to know about everything," he added. (ANI)
