During my summer vacation, when I used to visit my grandparents home in Devakkotai, I often saw them using copper vessels and large water storage copper containers.
My grandma often feels difficult while washing them.
I asked my grandma “Why don’t you use steel containers like others are using nowadays?” My grandma laughed at me and asked “What’s the use of using plastic and steel containers?” She added copper has purifying properties of water.
Again I asked her, “Grandma,why don’t use use RO plants now since it is difficult for you to wash?” She gazed at me saying that our ancestors are leaving these precious products behind for the future use. There may be a reason behind this.
The next day, I read in the newspaper that, RO plants in hubbali are actually emanating a strange odour and lacks taste!
