A 25-year-old Jharkhand farmer, who had been unable to sell his produce amid the COVID-19 pandemic, was rewarded for his generous gesture. With no takers for his five tonnes of watermelon, Ranjan Kumar Mahto of Jharkhand's Bokaro district offered the produce to soldiers of the Sikh Regimental Centre (SRC). Instead of accepting the donation, SRC officers bought Mahto's entire produce at market price.
