Selling Palm fruits

Posted by
Devi (Chennai, India) on 7 February 2015 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Borasses flabelliser or Ice apple in English . Come hot summer, you will find them seated on the roadsides, selling palm fruits. Much in demand as it quenches thirst and cools the system. Here we have a mother and daughter...yes the head of the family has gone to pluck more from the trees, which border either side of the National Highway and are found growing in villages too.
