I am becoming brave these days! I saw this lady at a hotel in Cherrapunji and asked her if I could click her picture. She came out of the front desk and posed for me in her pretty Jaisem, the traditional dress of Meghalaya!

We also asked front desk ladies at another hotel if it was difficult to tie and they said no it was not. How pretty it looks!
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.
