photoblog image Fast food.......huhh!!

Fast food.......huhh!!

Chakki - an indigenious device used to grind mainly wheat, the flour of which is used for making chapatis. These can be found in villages even these days when Packed & Fast food are the order of the day. Its a simple machine which has two stones with an opening in the upper stone - the wheat grains are put into this hole and the upper stone is rotated by using the handle. The wheat grains get crushed between the two stones and flour comes out of the corner where there is a slight gap between the two stones. Grinding wheat in this manner is a time consuming and tedious process.

The lady is from a typical village in Haryana and is selling a few of her handmade dolls and wall hangings other than using her chakki for the audience at the mela.

The pics you are showing of your culture, Thomas, are incredibly sharp, focused and colorful. I love the way you crop them and are telling the stories to go with them. I really do feel like I'm getting a good education from you. Thank you very much!
