JAISALMER (Web Desk) – An Indian man quit his job and started cultivating aloe vera and other crops on his 120-acre farmland.
According to The Times of India report, Harish Dhandev had a government job but was not gratified.
Hailing from a family of farmers, he wanted to practice something different. At one time, he visited an Agri expo in Delhi and that proved a turning point in his lifetime.
