Stone grinders have gone out of fashion in urban India. But when I was growing up we had both sil batta (on the right in the photo) and chakki (the round one on the left) at my home!
This is what was used to grind pulses (using the round one called chakki), masala (spices) and chatni in Indian homes before mixers and grinders became common. So when I saw them at Lakshman Sagar I had to click a picture.
April has not been great travel wise. But it looks like I will after all go to Chandigarh for work. Hope May will be a different month travel wise. So for a few more days I will have to manage with pictures rather than travel tales.
