Harvesting -

Rice has a different name for every stage it's in between planting and eating. Padi, for example, is the growong plant. The english term 'rice-padi' is therefor not correct. 'Nasi' is what you eat. Rice also changes name depending on the way it is cooked.

These women are beating the hell out of the cut plants to get out the rice. Respect. And yes, a machine could do it but it would not be their machine so they would have no income.
