Men carrying rice and flinging straw out of winnowing hut, 1970.
Threshing rice in the huts. The small boys picked up the sheaves and rushed with them to the threshing hut. There they threw them down and a gang of youths hanging on to ropes dangling from the rafters trod out the ears with rhythmic movements supported by a chant, and then threw out the empty sheaves at the other end of the hut.
