This was the first time when I visited jorhat, Assam. Since I didn’t know the in and out of trade so I had spent some time in my in-laws house at Teok, I observed Assam is rich for oil, tea plantation, agriculture, handicrafts but I tried to figure out the best way of survival of  farmers, I had noticed that the quality of soil is very productive and can grow sufficient trees. So their I started my journey of cultivation of agarwood now I have ten agarwood tree home grown at the backyard, these tree are highly valuable for medical purposes, it can be extracted to produce oudh (attar) which is rich component for perfurmer. So their I started to work out with the garden. Since forest rules are strict so I am not able to start any trade with the trees but I am seeking help currently from the government, NGO’s, agricultural research institute to assist the local community to spread awareness on agarwood and to help the farming community develop. The reason behind this is because I have seen illiteracy, lack of employment and job opportunity for the youth.So I had put up this article for the readers to get associated by mapping the streamline of agarwood cultivation which can be a good income source for the farmers, it can also create employment, and develop the trade and economic conditions. If you are reading this article and want to do something for the society and the farming community please share or put a comment to this article. Those days are gone when we say God helps those who help themselves, we as a human has to take initiative to help the poor.
