The 'Lesser Granary' Door



"   Rice is a beautiful food. 
     It is beautiful when it grows, 
     precision rows of sparkling green stalks shooting up to reach the hot summer sun. 
     It is beautiful when harvested, 
     autumn gold sheaves piled on diked, patchwork paddies. 
     It is beautiful when, once threshed, 
     it enters granary bins like a (flood) of tiny seed-pearls. 
     It is beautiful when cooked by a practised hand, 
     pure white and sweetly fragrant.   "

Shizuo Tsuji

It would also be entwined in tales of reclaiming land from the backwaters by our ancestors for those of us in Kuttanad. 
This is the door to the second granary.

As you will notice, it is less ornate than the primary one. (The ends of the arc in the metal work have broken off.)

Notes:
  1. This is the second part of an earlier post titled 'Door to the Granary'.
