Successful oyster farming experiment in Bastar
In the beginning, this passion for producing pearls from oysters was exactly what it sounds like. After collecting a variety of books and various types of information, Monica began farming oysters with the help of some tribes who worked with her. To do this, she began the work of raising oysters with the help of local resources. For this, in addition to Chhattisgarh, oysters were imported from other provinces such as Gujarat, Howrah, Delhi, Jharkhand.

After becoming successful in oyster farming, the real job was extracting pearls from oysters. Extracting pearls from oysters is not an easy task. But it is said that where there is a will, there is a way. This first experiment of injecting pearl tissue into oysters and extracting pearls from the oysters after 20 months was successful in Bastar. Following the success of this experiment, Monica now prepares to connect the Bastar tribes in view of her possibilities.
pearl farming can become a means of earning money
In Bastar, the oyster is called Bastariya Juban Ganja Gudli. Generally the people of Bastar eat it with great fervour. This is the reason why there is the danger of extinction of the oysters that are found in large numbers in the Bastar river ponds. In such a situation, people in the tribal areas are very excited about this use of Monica. In fact, this experiment was done by Monica Sridhar by staying among the people of Bastar, so that the people of the tribal areas of Bastar could find their livelihood in it. For this, the oyster farming work was done in the pond of farmer Mangalram of Bastar village in Bhatpal, about twenty kilometers from Jagdalpur. Along with some of the village girls, the owner of the pond himself also participated in this work. The neighbors are very excited about the results they have seen in twenty months and believe that it can become a good source for the people of Bastar.

This is how pearls are born in oysters
After knowing the confidence of all this, finally understand how pearls are produced from oysters. Oyster surgery is performed after raising oysters in the pond. Actually, during the surgery, the muscles of the oyster are loosened and then, after putting a particle of sand by making a small hole inside, the oyster is closed in the same way and kept in water for two days. This is because some oysters also die during surgery. Since the specialty of the oyster is that when it dies, it kills many with it. Then all the oysters that die during the surgery are separated and the ones that survive are placed in a plastic bucket and left in the water. And after 20 months when it opens, in this way a pearl-shaped grain of sand is born. With the help of low cost and a little hard work, oysters will soon be seen in Bastar’s ponds. Something like this is going to happen tomorrow Bastar, we just have to wait a bit.
