Question:

Have you seen anybody winnow grain at home or in a paddy field? What is the word in your language for winnowing? What do people use for winnowing? (Give the words in your language, if you know them.)

Answer:

Yes, I have seen many ladies winnowing heaps of grain in my village. The word winnowing in our language is ‘Barsana’ ya ‘udana’. People winnow grains to remove straws, chaff and dust found in grains there. In Hindi, the winnowing fan is called ‘Chhaaj’ used by the village people.
