sifting the rice grains


This is the traditional way of sifting the grain and getting rid of empty husks.  We let nature through the force of the wind, blow the empty husks away while gravity pulls down the grains straight down. hehe

We use a handwoven “nigo”, like the one she’s holding, and slowly empty the rice grains.  The process will be repeated until empty husks are virtually gone from the pile.

then the grains are dried and sent to the granary.
