In making of Bamboo fencing

This photograph has been taken while I was going on a road.In fact,it's a common sight in rural side of Telugu speaking states of both Andhra and Telangana.Making a tadika (in local language) or fencing block with bamboos to guard the house like a wall around it ,is not an easy task.It took lot of labor to get the bamboos from the forest available.Further more,hours of hard work with patience is also needed to make a fencing block.

After getting bamboos,They have to pierce them vertically to wove it carefully.These are strong enough withstanding all types of seasons.Literally,served some decades for a house in lieu of wall.Each tadike costs up to Rs.500/-,usually house owners or other interested people buy them as per their requirement.

Here,in this picture both the old couple were working on their bamboo tadike for the purpose of their domestic use but not for sale.They seem to have well experienced in such a work.

Also Presented it to Our World Tuesday
