Last week when I was returning to my home in Madipakkam (மடிப்பாக்கம் கார்த்திகேயபுரம்  சென்னை Karthikeyapuram, Chennai), I was attracted by neighborhood uncle’s hand made instrument which he was using to pluck the mangoes(மாம்பழங்கள்) from a big tree.  In a long stick, at the end he tide a round iron rod. In the circle shaped iron rod he tied a cloth.
