Gasoline Engine-run grain mill and the operator with Dhaka topi on his head

Size: 675×1024

A gasoline-powered grain mill seen en route from Naudanda to Birethanti, Nepal. A man, probably the mill-runner, is sitting at the other end of the machine, with a patterned dhaka cap worn askew on his head.

Machine powered mills are evidence of modernization in the mountain villages in of Nepal. In many places in Nepal, milling is still powered by water or hand.
