Dhiki‚ Jato on verge of displacement



BANKE: The traditional manual wooden thresher (dhiki) and stone grinder (jato) have been displaced in rural areas of Banke district.

With the trend of establishing mills run on diesel and electricity, the traditional grinders and crushers are on the verge of displacement. Earlier, dhikis and jatos were the only means to grind and crush food grains.

In villages, Dhikis and Jatos are falling into disuse, said Munsi Prasad Yadav, a local resident of Matehiya. “Except the poor villagers, the others use electric mills to grind and crush food grains.”

At Matehiya, only five percent population is said to be using wooden thresher and stone grinders.
