You will see the humble charpoys in almost all rural and semi urban homes in India.

On what we call dhabas here which are truck stops where long distance truck drivers stop for a meal and some rest, you will find a number of them in the front courtyards.

I personally cannot use them any more due to the condition of my hips, but they are very comfortable and act like hammocks in set frames.

This humble but ubiquitous piece of furniture from India has now gone global!  At least a start has been made in Australia!  The story behind this development has been nothing less than a sensation in the Indian media. The social media too has been very active posting the advertisement from Australia.
