I am Basva. My father is a farmer. We live in Belvanika
village in Karnataka. It is the month of July. Like every
year, Appa, my father, is preparing the field to sow the
onion crop. There are so many things to be done at this
time. To help him I too go to the field with Appa. In the
last few days, Appa has been using the Khunti (an iron
rod) to dig the soil, loosen it and make it soft.
Find out
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö In Basva’s area an implement called Khunti is used to
loosen the soil. What is this kind of implement called
in your area? Draw it and discuss.
For the teacher: This lesson talks about the process of cultivating an
onion crop. You can use this as an example to encourage children to find
out and describe the process for growing some crops that are common in
their area.

This year also my father will sow onion seeds in the field. The
bullocks will pull the Kurige and Appa will walk behind them,
sprinkling the seeds. I would also like to do this, just like my
Appa. But Appa says that it is necessary to drop the right amount
of seeds at a regular distance. This is not so easy to do. He says
that I may drop too many seeds at one place. I must wait till I
am a little older to be able to do this properly.
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö What other ways could be
used to plough the fields
instead of animals. Discuss.

gardens, without being planted. Appa says that we must remove
the weeds so that they do not take up all the water and fertilisers.
If  there are too many weeds, then the onion plants will not be
healthy. Amma, Uncle and I, we all help Appa to take out the
weeds.

I am happy to see the plants
growing. They are tall enough
to reach my knees. The leaves
have started turning yellow and
drying up. This means that the
onions are ready to be taken out.
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Draw any crop which you
have seen in the field.
Do you know why?
Everyone at home will have to work to take the onions out. It is
important that this should be done at the right time. If we are
late, the onions will rot in the ground itself and all our hard
work will be wasted.
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Basva helps his
father in the field. Do
you help the elders in
your family in their
work? What do you
help with?
