Even as many people put water pots for the birds, this farmer in Jetpur has constructed a bird house with 2,500 pots that can withstand the vagaries of nature in all seasons.
The idea struck when Bhagwanji Bhai was sitting at his farm one fine morning in Navi Saankli village in Jetpur taluka.
He began by creating an attractive design for the birdhouse and was ready to spend a sum of almost Rs 20 lakh all by himself.
Later, he started building the birdhouse for which he made 2,500 unbreakable pots on his plot of land which was given to him by the Panchayat.
He created a galvanized boundary to keep the round pots from bore pipes in which steel bolts were used to make pots and special electric wires were made for absorbing lightning during monsoon to protect the birds.
Bhagwanji Bhai, his sons and his friends from the village have arranged the pots according to the huge pot design. After one year of their hard work, a wonderful birdhouse took shape.
Beams Bhagwanji Bhai, “If people build this kind of a birdhouse in every village it would be very good. I have made my life by making positive use of money.”
