In olden days, everything was done by the people themselves. Those were the time automation was unheard of.

And farming was the most respected and important. So, the tilling, sowing, watering, fertilising, harvesting, separating, cleaning, pounding all of these were done by hand.

In converting crops into edible form of grains and flour, the rolu rokali played an essential and exclusive part.

In these modern days, most of us do not know the importance of rolu rokali (mortar and pestle) because we have lost connect with our traditional processes and values.
