This indi was made using dried wheat stalks and covered with sarkanda ropes. It was used in the cattle shed to place pots filled with milk collected from the cows or sometimes to place tokra (basket) with the fodder. Indi like this are preferred for use in the cattle shed due to better durability as compared to the ones covered with fabric.
