ALAPPUZHA: While the children are playing on the computer and mobile phones, these siblings are interested in cattle rearing. Abhishek, an eighth grader, and Abhimanyu, a sixth grader, are now known dairy farmers, who milked cows a year ago when their mother and grandmother were not at home. They are studying at Sree Sankara English Medium School and their dream is a big farm with 100 cows.

Thirteen-year-old Abhishek and 11-year-old Abhimanyu, the sons of BSF jawan D Abhilash and Bowmyatha hailing from Kuruppankulangara in Cherthala, is taking care of not one or two cows, but seventeen cows, five lambs, and about a dozen chickens. They are also great at academics.

In order to secure Abhilash's retirement life, he started cattle raising five years ago which was taken over by his children. Abhilash will come next year after retiring. On the day of agriculture, the Minister of Agriculture addressed a function organized by Kanjikuzhi Panchayat to honor the child farmers.

Delay in junkar service

The children's mother and grandmother who went to the family home in Vaikom were late to come as the Junkar service was canceled. Milk had to be given to the society within four hours. Abhishek and Abhimanyu took the milking machine and went into the barn. They put 20 liters of milk in front of the mothers who came rushing! That was the beginning of a new life.
