Photographer's Note

Continuing my series of Zatra Festival, I'm showing you a man preparing sugar cane juice, in the paddy field in front of the temple.
The juice is extracted from the cane by pressing it through iron rollers. It is nutritious and refreshing.
It contains about 15 per cent natural sugar and is rich in organic salts and vitamins.
Sugarcane juice has many medicinal properties. It strengthens the stomach, kidneys, heart, eyes, brain .
In hot summer days, it forms a soothing drink. A little lime juice or ginger may be mixed in the juice
to improve its flavor.

In the WS you can see a closer view of another sugar cane stall at the same venue.

Hope you like it...
