Bamboo - an indispensable grass for all seasons

During the last few weeks, the garbage bins in my neighbourhood have been toppled by a few stray dogs looking for food among the garbages. As a result garbages were strewn all over the places.

But lo and behold! Today, someone resourceful has come up with a solution to deter the dogs from toppling the bins using bamboo poles. Ingenious, isn't it?

Bamboos belong to the grass family but is placed in a separate family due to the presence of woody culms or stems. It finds its usefulness in lots of situations - from "pansuh" to building material and as conduit for water.
