Traditional grinder Dhiki in operation


PARASI, OCT 10 - A farmer of Nawalparasi district has started Dhiki, traditional grinder, which can be operated through water. The Dhiki can be very fruitful as most of the Nepalese women spent their time in household chores like grinding rice. Farmer Krishna Bahadur Khadka of Bihari village of Dhurkot ward No 8 of Nawalparasi district has been using the Dhiki which can be operated without manual labour. Water is flown in the place where people press to grind something and it automatically goes down and it works. This is found to be very useful in a country where water can be found in every nook and corner of the country. Khadka has started orange farming and other farming in the village and hopes that will be very fruitful to generate income. He has been able to show the example that the idea can work, said teacher Bishnu Prasad Poudel. Technology is very simple and it can be used by a layman like Khadka, he said. If there were publicity about the importance of this Dhiki, most of the Nepalese women living in rural areas of the country would be benefited. Posted on: 2003-10-09 10:10
