As autumn, a season of high sky and plump horses, has arrived, the countryside gently undulates, thick with the plump ears of crops and appetizing fruits. This year’s rich harvest is not a present from nature. It is the brilliant result achieved by the agricultural workers and helpers throughout the country, who turned out as one in farming and worked sincerely all the spring and summer, in spite of unfavourable weather conditions.

Taking great pleasure at the sight of bumper crop, they are hurrying up with harvest. Farm fields are resounding with roaring buzz of machines and merry sounds of music, and the countryside is pulsating with vigour day and night.
