Abstract:
LFE (Live-in-Field Involvement) is an establishment level course for my graduation in Autonomous
College, Bangladesh (IUB). Which is obligatory for every one of the understudies considering in
here. I have made this report of Live in Field Understanding (LFE) program as a member of group
number 19.

On 2nd January 2017 a gathering of 65 students under Section 8 were sent to jessore from IUB
to finish the course Life-in-Field Involvement (LFE). Not at all like every one of the courses of IUB
instructed in the classroom LFE is educated on the field of the distinctive territories of
Bangladesh. The fundamental maxim of the course is to give IUB understudies thought regarding
the provincial settings of Bangladesh additionally give the understudies an extension blend with
them and comprehend them all the more nearly. For the most part understudies are made a
request to do a study entitled as " IUB Health and Socio Economic Survey" to discover the
wellbeing and financial state of the country zone. Later on understudies need to present a write
about a particular theme that they have encountered on field. The principle target of this
program was to assemble learning about the way of life of individuals in rustic regions and their
advancement in term of family structure, social and technological aspects.

INTRODUCTION:
(Live-in-Field Experience)

LFE bridges the gap between our historical knowledge and the present through an empirical
study of the roots of our culture.

This report is prepared for the course of Live-in-Field Experience (LFE). It is a pre-requisite course,
which has to be completed by every students of Independent University, Bangladesh before
graduation.

LFE (Live in field Experience) is the study about predominant culture and mode of production in
rural Bangladesh. It is also the study of villages as the country has more than sixty-eight thousand
villages and majority of the population still lives in the villages. The rest of the people of urban
area depend on the villagers directly or indirectly for various purposes. Development of our
country is based on our rural areas. Therefore, it is very important to know what is going on in
the village. Our politics, society, economic condition, literacy rate and health condition depend
on our village. But most urban people have a perception that the village people are poor and
illiterate. As we are not concerned about our village and villagers, thats why even after 40 years
of our independence, Bangladesh is still an underdeveloped country. So, it is our duty to know
about them and their life style.

Objectives of LFE:
The LFE 201 course has multi dimensional objectives, the basis of which is tofamiliarize the city
based students (the expected policy planners and implementers of the near future), who are
otherwise unexposed, with village life. In essentially a week,we looked into a number of key areas
including:

The structural construction of the village through maps, the household and
itsinteractions through interviews.
The health, sanitation and environmental standings of the village, along withthe level
of awareness the people possess regarding such issues.
7

The socio-economic conditions of the


households, their incomes,expenditures,
livelihood strategies, and adoption and
understanding of microcredit schemes along
with their views on the subject of micro loans.
The social changes that the village
has undergone since the emergence
of Bangladesh, through its different regimes till
date, both the positive andnegative impacts of
these changes and how the members of the
village societyhas equated themselves with
modernity and assimilated developments
plansand projects.
And finally, I delved into the functions of a
generic rural market,understanding it
constituents- the hut and the bazaar, the actors
involvedtherein and drawing parallels with some
of the textbook marketing andeconomic
concepts that I know about.

About RRF:
We have been taken to RRF (Rural Reconstruction Foundation). Its a non-governmental, non-
profit, non-political and non-sectarian, voluntary development organization was established on
20 March 1982 aiming to promote socio-economic emancipation of the underprivileged men,
women, children and youths in the South-western part of the country in Bangladesh.

It was so beautiful place, Ive never seen. There employees are so delightful with us and they give
us popper service. The food quality also good. I wish I would like to go again there.

Methodology
There are so many process to conduct with research but among all those method, the researcher
has to choose one method to complete his research. Methodology implies more than simply the
methods we intend to use to collect data. It is often necessary to include a consideration of the
concepts and theories which underlie the methods. Unlike an algorithm, a methodology is not a
formula but a set of practices.

We have collected information by interviewing the village peoples who are members of our
selected households.

The following methodologies were used to prepare our report:

We formed group having two members in each group. We were selected to survey on
Kochuya Village.
Rapport Building.
We used Mobile to collect data.

Questionnaire Survey:
We were provided by 2 Questionnaires-Household and Adultery.Each of us had to fill them via
internet by going to 9 individual houses and asking them about different chapters of the
questionnaires.

We went to house and collect data and put the live data on the server.
We did field work to collect important and useful information.
We had interview and discussion with the villagers.

Kochuya:
So my group was select in kochuya. It was
very beautiful village. We assigned to 11
households on (Khan-para, Matt-para, Molla-
para and Shikdar-para)

Location
Weve went to Kochuya village is a village of
Ramnagar Union in Jessore. It is located in
front of Jessore Khulna Highway. It is 3 km.
away from RRF Tarc, Jessore. It is located at
the centre/middle of Jessore. And the length
of Kochuya village is 3 km.

Population
Kochuya village is one of the biggest village of Ramnagar unions. Thats why here the population
is also higher. According to local people of Kochuya village the approximate populations of Abad
Kochuya village are 3500-4000 people.
10

Economic condition
The economic conditions of the peoples of Kochuya village are good. In every household there are
1-2 members who are the income generator of their family. Majority numbers of male
members/household head/income generator of households are farmer. The other minor
occupations have been found also such as Bricks field workers, Sewing, Business which includes
Motor Bike Parts Business so their economic condition is not bad at all. They are very hard
working peoples. We have also found several household head or income generator of a family who
have 2-3 professions which prove their hard working ability. As a result of their hard working
ability their economic condition is quite good.

Monthly income on an average in TK 8000 to 10000.


Their food cost is almost 5000-7000 TK per month.
People have been in the same profession for many years.
Most of the female population are not working outside of home.

Report Topic Discussion:


So my group have assigned to collect information about agriculture. So we got some information
about kochua village agriculture sector. Kochua main economy depends on agriculture. The
goods sold on the market are mainly agro goods. The main transaction of those agricultural goods
occurs on Rupdiya Bazer. The farmers take their commodity there during the Haat days the
wholesalers, dealers and suppliers form the nearby district as well as the different part of the
country gathers there to buy the goods. The main products Kochua produce are Mustard, Potato,
Corn, Banana, Turmeric, Red spinach, wheat, gourd, palm juice, and many vegetables.
12

Most of the people of kochuya are employed. They do at least something to earn for their
livelihood. Besides every household we talked to different types of people who live in Vatpara,
they informed us that most of the male are farmer and day labor. Some farmers are cultivating
in their own land and some farmers are cultivating in lease land. They are cultivating different
types of vegetables and crops based on different season. Their cultivated crops and vegetables
are selling in local market. Besides agricultural work their alternative profession is day labor. As
a day labor they worked in brick fields, digger, porter etc. Besides that, some people are working
as tractor driver, van puller, bull cart driver etc. Some people also has grocery store, tea stall
inside village, Rupdia bazar and Sutighata bazar as well.

Paddy:
The best possible planning for sowing is extremely significant for accomplishing the normal level
of generation. The ideal planning for sowing of Amon is Srabon(Jul 16-Aug 15). The seed bed
should be arranged appropriately before sowing. The seedbed arrangement starts in the start of
the Jaistha (May 15-Jun14). The paddy is reaped in Agrahayan(Nov 15-Dec 14). The consumption
behind Amon is not as much as IRRI. The cost of work, compost and pesticides is less. Other than
for stormy season water system is not that much vital.
15

Vegetables:
They produce different types of vegetable. They produce two type of vegetables

Summer Vegetables: balsam apple, ladys finger etc.


Winter Vegetables: Cauliflower, pumpkin, cauliflower, cabbage, cucumber, beans,
tomato, potato and Carrot. Leafy vegetables such as Red Spinach, Radish leaves etc. are
two most common winter vegetables.
16

Irrigation,fertilizing,weeding
They have wonderful irrigation system. One water pam can cover 5 or 6-acre land and they
irrigated two-time in a day morning and night. One who control all this thing.

Soli is good enough for farming. But sometime use some fertilizer like TSP, Potash, Urea. Cow
dung etc.

Those are active farmer. They are so happy, how they are live.

Along with agricultural work they also have poultry and kettle farm.

ON MY PERPECTIVE LFE

12 days of LFE is memorable for me. I wish, Ill go again in there. I miss RRF. I could say this is
one of the most beautiful venue all others venues IUB taken others. the facilities on there,
food qualities, mamas (employees) Ill miss them.

I would say about kochuya. That is so beautiful village.


Peoples are so nice to us. They are very helpful. When I
interviewed to my household members, they are so
polite to me. On first meet they accept me as like Im
one of them. I meet with 11 households. If I could Ill
go, there again and meet with them.

we also visit in Sagardari, where famous poet Michael


Madhusudan Dutta birthplace. And beanpole, where
Bangladesh- india border, and we shopped in there.

After that I got many experiences, I learn many things


on this journey. I got new friends. So I was happy.

Conclusion
In conclusion, we would like to say that overall it was a wonderful experience. The people of
Abad Kochuya were very cooperative. They cooperated a lot with us, but the whole condition
and standard of living is not that good, as most of the household heads we interviewed were
engaged in farming and agricultural activities for which their income level was not up to the
mark, except some, who were also engaged in other work and business activities and they were
comparatively and financially in better position. The twelve days that we spent away from
home and interacting with the villagers about their problem, issues and benefits have helped us
gain a lot of knowledge about villages. As I have mentioned in the introduction section that it
was the first visit of many of our fellow IUB students, it was an educational and adventurous
journey for them. Each day that we spent in Jessore cannot be expressed in words, it was such a
joyful and amazing journey. We miss every minute and every second of it, from our journey to
field work to gala night to our journey back to Dhaka, well cherish every single moment of it. It
was an unforgettable journey and we are thankful to IUB for giving us this opportunity.
