Video | Grain storage among the Halakki people – Karnataka

Watch how a Halakki elder makes a traditional container in which grain can be stored for several months. This custom is cost effective and ensures that contents are safe from rodents and vermin without need for pesticides. In addition to being friendly to the environment, such customs allow senior members to remain involved in their communities.
