Drying the rice

India - Tamil Nadu - Madurai

And I can assure you, it was bloody hot, burning like hell, here in the inner court of this rice company.

The rice has to be dry totally before it gets pealed. Therefore they turn the rice with this tool, a wooden shuffle pulled by robes. And who is doing this kind of heavy work again .... ?

Western people wouldn't stand to work by such a heat on their head, even covered, they would get brain dammage.
