Pidha is a low chair with a backrest. Oral narratives suggest that pidha were gifted to brides at the time of the wedding, which is no longer a common practice. This pidha, made of chill wood is one of the oldest examples recorded in Haryana. It was in a worn-out condition and was no longer in use.
