When you are living in a progressive place its a new thing you see people in their traditional way of living. So when a farmer went to city hall wearing on his back this grass basket many people took the photo of him. Seems like new when it supposed to be not because people in the rural villages are doing this since time of memorial. Well, when the old came to the world of modern living, its a hit.

We call this as kuribot, farmers gather grass in the fields and put it there, then feed to their animals like cows

I agree. We have been so much modernized that traditional living has reduced and seeing one gives altogether a different essence.

People will always look at old ways as a curiosity in the presence of modernity.
