The Thadou tribals cut three tubes of different lengths from the same bamboo stem and the tubes are separately blown with the mouth to produce different musical notes. Sound producing objects made from bamboo pieces are hung up in the paddy fields to ward off the birds. These are mainly played with the mouth. This basket has a gaping mouth with a tapering end, and has loops acting as hand-holds. In Manipur, people living in the hills as well as in the valley have a practice of collecting the ash by burning sun-dried outer layer of the banana stem, straw and pea plants. Suspension bridges made of cane used to be the sole mode of passage across ravines and mountain streams in earlier days. The diameter of a Laitang basket and its mouth is 37 cm.
