Feel free to mute the commentary...this video demonstrates the truly 'back-breaking' work that is a part of paddy rice farming.
To watch these women break their backs(and their fingers must be shriveled from going in and out of water) for rice paddys, helps us recognize how important rice is. These women know they have to perform this work- Rice is a staple crop for Thailand; they need rice commodity to live. Not only do most of thai societies eat rice, it is also valuable as an export.
