India is a strange country, so said (according to Jaishankar Prasad) Alexander the Great to his general Seleucus Nicator. Among the countless evidences that stand testimony to Alexander’s assertion, this one from Rajasthan is really mind-blowing.
The pigeons are owners of land of approximate 365 bighas and have Rs.30 lakh bank balance.
This is not the only place in Rajasthan with such unique landowners.
They have in their name a fixed deposit of around Rs.10-12 lakh in bank.
But how do they work the finances?
The pigeons are fed by these members.
Whatever money is earned, is spent on the welfare of the poor.
BTW, are you still wondering who Jaishankar Prasad, mentioned in the first line of this article, is? India is a strange country, indeed.
