At Anegundi it was the first-hand experience how Chapadis (granite stone slabs), Kuchas (Stone pillars), sized stones and aggregates are quarried in an indigenous manner. This way of quarrying is age-old witness being the chisel marks on stones of Hampi!

Mounds of waste © Chitra Vishwanath/Biome - The fine dust which hasn't found any value. Acres of land is covered with this dust and it gets solidified as time passes on...
