Rural Life - Gokarn

Still Images of Rural life and landscape at Gokarn....
This is the device to Lift Water from the Well.......
This works on the Lever Principle, with a slanted horizontal pole (above my head) balanced on a pivot, one end of which is tied down to weights and the other end is fixed to another bamboo pole (which I am holding) tied to a Bucket. I have to pull the pole holding the bucket and fill the water, and let the pole slowly up, and then empty the water into the water-channel or another container.
