Tradition old and new

In the background is one of the residential buildings of the Ashram. In the foreground a traditional method of drawing water, the cups pulling up water by a system that is pulled by two bulls. The "Arth" as it is called, was built this year by some old craftsmen who still remember the rapidly dying method. Nowadays there are very few of these machines left in Pali District as they have been replaced by tube wells and electric pumps which have rapidly decreased the water level. The sound of this machine as it turns is so relaxing and peaceful it brings you to another era.
