Empty Field … Why Not Race?
Right after all the paddy has been harvested and farmers have taken home their produce, villagers in Bahadurpur of Jessore organise bullock cart race towards the end of January. It is a major event in the area and racers and people from far away travel there to join. Well-bred bulls are used in the race since the stakes are high. The winner can walk away with a TV, bicycle or even a complete audio system.
