Bamboo plantation, a near universal, in households across rural Assam has the potential to turn the tide for Assam’s economy and its people. We have witnessed the ill effects of pollution in Delhi. There was a news report recently that highlighted the construction of a 13,000 sq ft room by spending ₹ 4 crore of tax money for inhaling oxygen in Gurgaon in Haryana courtesy the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation.
Surprisingly, not many people know that bamboo sends out 35% extra oxygen into the atmosphere.
Therefore, the benefit of bamboo must be advertised to a wider audience. If not already, it can become an object of attraction for tourists.
There are folktales which talk of ghosts amidst bamboo. It can now be turned on its head by making tourists spend a night in rooms made of bamboo.
