"God's noblest creation is man" says Alexander Pope; likewise his creation of cane is also a noblest one. In olden days before steel and ropes were invented canes were used to bridge little mountains and to cross wild rivers, because its length and strength are unimaginable. Men and their domestic animals & materials passed through the "cane bridges". Like any other inventions the Chinese were top four runners in utilizing completely the cane usages. With thin canes they tie the materials, while thick canes were used to make furniture and other house hold articles like baskets.
Canes are distributed in almost all parts of the world except dry and sandy regions. Its growth is abnormal when compared to other plants. Its growth is consistent in length and breadth. In tropical regions where sunlight and rain are abundant its growth is marvelous. It is amazing to know that the cane gives the world's protected drinking water. The aborigines of Brune and Indonesia quench their thirst with canes. They cut it and the sweet water drips through the fibers.
With canes we can make artistic and aesthetic designs of furniture. We can bend it at any angle and hence cane has unlimited utilities while wood has its constraints. The skin of the cane is used to make ornamental trays, fruit basket, bookshelves and many other articles.
