Photographer's Note

In West Bengal date palms come with a wonderful gift during winter! They produce a very sweet liquid which is collected by the villagers through these pots for their own consumption. As far as I know,first of all the part just under the leaves is scraped . Then just after the sunset an earthern pot is hung below the scraped part.Throughout the night the juice collects in the pot. The next morning before sunrise the pot is taken out,and the liquid is consumed as the sun rays make it toxic.
This photograph shows that the early bird really does get it all!
