The Pulley system used in wells these days have almost ceased to exist in the Urban cities like Chennai, people don’t use these to drwa water from their wells.

Though a few households / public places use these, many have moved to Motors, Bore pumps as water is becoming scarcer. Also drawing water from these wells are an art, using these pulley’s, one needs to know when to start releasing the rope without hurting ones hands and when/how to start pulling the water filled bucket to the top again without hurting their hands.
