The whole world is moving towards new technologies and scientific inventions, but still one can find the oldest and traditional mode of transportation in Kerala across some villages: the Bullock cart. Some merchants and travelers prefer the bullock cart over other transportation vehicles.
Merchants transport their goods such as bags of cardamom or rice, or straw for farm use (Thavudu in local language) the short distances of 25-30kms by bullock cart. It is low cost and seems to be the safest mode of transport despite being slow. It is preferred by local merchants across the country side and is also common in North India.
