MANGALDAI: Shil Byabosayee Association, an organization of the businessmen involved with the stone crusher industry continuing their initiative to offer financial assistance to the needy, offered an amount of Rs. 23,000 to Divyang Ranu Doley at Bonkuwal Boralimara village in Golaghat.
Ranu Doley with one invalid leg since her birth has been struggling with life to maintain her family by working as a daily wage earner with the help of crutch. Despite her physical problem she has been working as a daily wage earner by transplanting paddy seedlings which had occupied the news headline during the lockdown period.
Besides engaging in agricultural activities, she is also an expert weaver and transformed the dream flowers and colours in her weaving in handloom like a normal village girl. This 34-year-old damsel even completed her HS classes but could not pursue her higher education only due to acute financial hardship.
The Shil Byabosayee Association at the initiative of Seuji Asom - a non-profit organization for the progressive farmers of the State earlier extended an amount of Rs. 1 lakh as a token of inspiration and solidarity to the National Award for Best Lady Farmer recipient Pothar Konya fame Nabanita Das recently.
On Saturday, office bearers of the Association namely president Lachit Boro, secretary Giri Kanta Mahanta, adviser Dinesh Sarma and members Dhanbir Lama and Amrit Bazaz accompanied by president Hiren Saharia and adviser Bhargab Kumar Das of Seuji Asom among others went to the residence of Ranu Doley and offered the financial assistance. Secretary of local Village Defence Organization Raju Morang extended all cooperation to the visiting members of Shil Byobosayee Association. It is to be mentioned that though the village Bonkuwal Boralimara is under Bokakhat LAC represented by the Agriculture Minister Atul Bora, but the Minister till date could not spare his time to visit this worst flood affected village and to meet Ranu Doley- a glaring example of women empowerment.
