The main stalk of sarkanda grass dries up during winter and the grass is harvested. The thick part of the grass is used in making stools and the outer skin makes for thatch. The leaf of the grass is called munj. The munj is twisted tightly to create ropes. These ropes are then used to create web like structure on charpoi and muda. The muda can vary in size by height.
