Description

“In the initiation ceremony, people borrow horse cart from me. But indeed, they prefer the bullock cart that decorated well with the crystal and golden paint to my horse cart. In the past (around 20 years ago), this idea that the bullock cart was more valuable was more obviously seen.”  This was shared by a lady who is one of people who lend cart to others.

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