Wow, you dug up a two year old thread. Anyway, this topic is timeless.

Thanks for the appreciation. Comparison to Rudra and Yeti is a huge leap, both are masters way ahead of my league.

Well, all this activity happens in the same village where I work.

You are right, I had just typed the first spelling that came to my mind. BTW, the closest business establishment to that farm is an arrack/toddy shop.

Two years back it wasn't illegal, I haven't checked on them recently. Although I find it hard to believe that all their clientèle have switched to Kingfishers and Khodays.

Pull out some of the old travelogues by Samurai - they are all gems of their own kind. The Hampi one and the Dzongri trek were marvelous to say the least. Keep writing Samurai. This is one case where we have a Samurai as fluent with the pen as he may be with his samurai sword

Sankar,

All those medications must have made quite a psychadelic experience for you to have missed this thread.

Thanks Shankar and Nandan.

Naatty is Kannada.
Nutty is Tulu.

I used the local lingo Tulu.

Hey, nice thread, brought back memories of my childhood. Used to go to our fields with the working people and even tried my hand on all these stuff (from seeding till dehusking) when I was a kid . Best part I loved to do was to board the "Moyy" (that's a ladder kind of thing used to even out the ploughed mud). Basically they needed some weight to be put on it while the bulls pull that ladder to flatten the mud, normally uses a whole bunch of tied up plants itself. So I had substituted the weight sometime he he, man, it was fun. OK, now I think it may sound like blabber who haven't seen it. After ripping of the paddy there used to be another process to remove the seeds from the stems. We used to make flute kind of things from the just cut stems. And then there would be a festival at home where we'll call all other village folks to have a feast to celebrate the first day of preparing new rice. So many memories just rushing through my mind now. Thanks a lot Samurai for the thread and thanks to Sankar have dug it up.

Nice one!!

I usually would land up at our ancestral home at the time of boiling/de-husking but have been lucky to witness all the varying stages. Grand dad did it more out of love for agriculture than anything else and had some interesting varieties.

Rolling around in the mud was a great pastime too
