Description

In the initiation ceremony, people borrow horse cart from me. But they prefer the bullock cart that is well decorated with the crystals and golden paint over my horse cart. In the last 20 years the bullock cart has become more valuable and fashionable.

This was shared by a lady who is one of people who lends cart to others.

I found that the people are still proud to use the bullock cart for the initiation ceremony.
