I like this video, very traditional. Plus, excellent camera work.

Hand-held cameras, don't always do a good job.

Waste from trashing rice from stalks.

 

Rice stacks correct.

 

What does PIERA has to do with Classis Clay/Sonny Liston fight in the early 60s ?

 

On our way home from school near Guava Bush bridge, on Nigg post office dam.

The Muslim barber had a wooden corral for his cows, covered with PIERA.

As kids we were rally in tuned with the Classius Clay/Sonny Liston fight and imitate it during recess.

 

On the way home after school, I was supposed to pretend to fight me late friend Moti [who died in Schenectady NY] in the PIERA  covered corral.

I was Classius Clay, he was Sonny Liston and I was supposed to knock him out, during our pretend fight.

 

Things got a bit out of hand and when I knocked him out over the wooden rails. The boys standing around the corral watching, held on to his hands and we took off his clothes.

Motie got  really mad by this time and he ran  home naked.

 

Since I was his best friend and was in the corral with him, every looked at me to take his clothes home, but I was scared of his Ma.

 

Walking to his house with his clothes in my hands, I noticed his mother standing by their gate with a stick in her hand. Now I am really scared.

 

 I stood still for a while surveying the situation, how am I going to do this without any licks.

 

So I ran up to his fence, throw the clothes over and shouted

'AUNTY, MOTIE FEGET HE CLOTHES AT SCHOOL'

and me took off home.

It was months before I would visit him again at his house.

A true story.

 

Motie dad's gun that we borrowed to shoot birds, shot me accidently on my left elbow and that is not a PIERA story.

Our piera matrass and pillow were made of 'striped cloth' [why striped? maybe low cost]  and every few months the stitch was opened and piera spread out in the sun to dry. 

I never like the smell of piera pillows and even today the odour on pillows can keep me awake.

 

I have a bag needle and visiting  kids were told, its used to stitch bodies during an autopsy. After that, I knew it would be safe. No one wants to touch it.    

 

Is there a  name for the ground where the grass is removed wid shovels and a pole  planted in the middle to mash rice wid cows ?

BE-AAH, or is dat the rice nursery ?

on another note I used to swim in the soaking tank that water used to leave yo smelling like old rice bag  

One of the things I noticed with bathing wid water from the estate overhead tanks.

It had a high iron content and would rusty containers. Also while sweating, the iron odour is very strong. I never like dat smell.

 

In a rice soaking tank at rice mills, what was the dead rice that float called ?   It was bagged to feed chickens.
