Hundreds of self-reliant women make pebbles from dung in Dakop, Khulna.

Md. Shamim Hossain –

Khulna A pebble is two rupees. One hundred pebbles two hundred rupees. We have our own cow, we make gravel from cow dung and sell it. This money from the sale of gravel benefits the family. I keep some of my expenses and give the rest to my husband. The needs of boys and girls can also be met. This is how Shabri Roy (30) of Bortbari village of Kailashganj union of Dakop upazila spoke. She is not alone, many other women like her are making pebbles out of dung and selling them. They meet their own expenses and the small needs of the family with the money from the sale of gravel. Women of all areas of Dakop Upazila of Khulna do this work for about 8 months of the year except during monsoon. On the one hand, they get income and on the other hand, the pressure on the plants for fuel is reduced. The oxygen reservoir is protected from indiscriminate killing. Bajua Union No. 1 of Dakop Upazila is only 35-40 km away from Khulna city. About 20 thousand people live in this union of Dakop Upazila of Khulna. At one time people here chose agriculture as their main occupation due to underdeveloped communication system. Fish farming is also added to that cultivation. Paddy, watermelon, winter vegetables and other vegetables are also produced in this union. As no crops are produced for a large part of the year, cows graze there unhindered. That is why every family has more or less other livestock including cows. Rita Rani Biswas, a housewife of Bajua village, said that she can make one to one and a half thousand pebbles every month. They are dried and sold on the roadside or inside the house. The only cost is to buy jute. He can sell a pebble for two rupees. He said, he kept the necessary gravel for the family and sold the rest to the shopkeepers. The fariyas came to the house and took it away. The gravel taken from them is sold in other areas for three rupees. If you can sell 1500 pebbles in a month, it is 3000 taka. Which she kept some of herself and gave the rest to her husband. He can also meet the needs of boys and girls. Shyama Prasad Gain, former president of Bajua Union Higher Secondary School Board of Management, said that most of the women in this village make gravel. By doing this they have become very self-reliant. The village still has a lot of vegetation due to the use of gravel as fuel. which acts as our oxygen reservoir. Chairman Manas Kumar Roy said that most of the women of the union are able to meet their own needs by making gravel out of dung and helping in various household tasks. Everyone keeps the fuel they need for their family work and sells the rest. However, no government or private assistance is provided for this work.
