Traditional Shil Pata

Title: Traditional Shil Pata

Shil Pata or a grinding stone is a famous household object in Bangladesh. Used mainly to grind spices and prepare cook mixes, the home of shil patas is in Shillong. This tiny industry of stone cutters are finding themselves in an increasingly difficult situation as the industry thins out from lack of demand. Bangladesh is not abundant in stones, so the products travel to places where people can pay more. Story prepared by A K Rumel, DrikNEWS Correspondent, Sylhet, December 2012.
