Ancient people used various units to measure the four fundamental measurements. They used link and span to measure length. And units like kalan, thukku and manchadi were used to measure mass. Today we use more developed and successful units to measure those measurements. The problem with desirable units was that they didn t have a certain uniform pattern. For an example, a foot included 12 inches while a kilometre includes 1000 metres .
