Text from "Junput, Purba Medinipur"[edit]

I'm not sure where to put this, so I'm putting it here for the time being:

Junput is a lone village situated near the sea beach of Bay of Bengal, in the southern end of Purba Medinipur district of West Bengal state in India. Junput have a wonderful sea beach with natural resources and exclusively cashew-nut forest here and there. It has a beautiful village environment linked with mainland district headquarter Tamluk and other town Contai. Travelers who loves nature, Junput is very much watchable place to them. You will meet sea voyagers who catch fish and as well as cashew-nut collectors here and that will be a great adventure to you naturally!

My questions would be:

(1) The Junput article says the village has "no beach as such", but the other article said it has "a wonderful sea beach". Which of these statements is true?

(2) I didn't think cashews grew in the wild except in South America, but if there is a cashew forest in or around Junput, is that worth mentioning? By the way, do people in Junput eat the young cashew leaves? I ate those as an after-school snack frequently when I was a schoolboy in rural Malaysia, and they are fantastic and quite unlike anything else I've ever eaten. Moreover, they are highly perishable and have to be eaten as soon as possible after picking, so that could be a really worthwhile thing to mention in the "Eat" section, if it's unusual to have in Bengal or India, generally.
