A man in Gaibandha became astonished after he dug for potatoes at his own yard and found a potato shaped almost like a human palm!
Atiqur Rahman -- the cultivator -- dug out two potatoes – the palm-shaped one and another also of an odd-shape -- this morning, reports our Gaibandha correspondent.
He planted the seeds of the potato, locally known as ‘Gacch-Alu’, two months ago.
As the news of his strange find spread, curious locals rushed in to have a look at it. A potato of such a queer shape is indeed a worthy spectacle!
“Hearing the news, I’ve come to see the potato, and it seems a peculiar thing of nature I have ever seen,” said Noor Alam, a resident of Sukh Nagar area of the municipality.
Biplob Kumar, a trader, said that he did not believe it at first. “But now I’m astonished to see these queer-shaped potatoes.”
