Property worth millions of rupees named after birds, Millionaire Pigeons
Several millionaires in the Indian state of Rajasthan are well-known throughout the country, but little is known about a village where even pigeons are millionaires.
Pigeons in Jasnagar, Nagaur, are known as “multimillionaire pigeons,” according to India.com, because land worth crores of rupees have been named after them.
According to the article, the holdings include many acres of land, cash deposits, and a number of shops.
The town has 27 shops named after pigeons, according to the details. Aside from that, Rs3 million in cash deposits and 126 bigha land ‘belong’ to pigeons.
A resident, Prabhusingh Rajpurohit, informed the publication that 40 years ago, a new company named the “Kabutaran Trust” was established in the city, inspired by ancient customs of feeding mute birds.
“Industrialist Sajjanraj Jain spearheaded the project,” he continued. People have generously donated to the trust since then.
“Now, a gaushala (Indian shelter for homeless or unwanted cattle) is being run on this land owned by pigeons in which 500 cows stay. All medical arrangements have been made for these bovines here,” he said.
He stated that the trust was responsible for the construction of approximately 27 stores in the town in order to preserve and feed the birds.
He stated, “The shops earn Rs 80,000 per month in rent. The trust also receives a regular income from the land, which is rented. All of this revenue is placed in the bank, which has grown to Rs 30 lakh over the years.”
“Now with this earning, the trust is giving three sacks of food grains daily for the last 30 years. Arrangements are also made for around 400 cows staying in gaushala when required.”
