Thad kba u chrieh

Esra says:

This is an old narration of the Bhois which literally translates to "the monkey is drying his paddy".

It is used to describe a natural phenomenon wherein the sunbeams diverge through the clouds and fall focally on the hilltop; while the remaining areas are without sunshine and dark. This is when old people say, the monkey is drying his harvested paddy on that hilltop during this time.

"Thad kba u Chrieh" ๐Ÿต๐Ÿต๐ŸŒพ๐ŸŒพ sent by @esra_syiem ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ This is a Bhoi saying which is translated into the monkey is drying his paddy. As explained by Esra, this saying owes its origin to the natural phenomenon of the sun's rays hitting a specific area of a hilltop while other parts remain dark.
