Weekly Photo Challenge: Containers, Idangazhi

There are several traditional measuring utensils still popular in Kerala, one among them is Idangazhi which holds approximately one Kg of rice.

In the years gone by, rice was everything for Keralites, not just the source of food for all three meals, but it took the form of money to buy other things and pay for services rendered.

Rice for medicines and rice for fish… for all these measurements there existed smaller and bigger denominations of the measuring utensils too, called Uri, Nazhi, Idangazhi and Para.

Let me share an image, for the weekly challenge: Containers, where one Idangazhi rice was being given to a theyyam performer as a symbolic payment, though now a days everything is paid in paper cash.
