Photographer's Note

Sugarcane juice is the juice extracted from pressed sugarcane. It is consumed as a beverage worldwide. This is a popular drink in India especially in states such as Gujarat, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh. It is known as "Oosacha Ras" or "Ganneka Ras" in Maharashtra in Marathi and Hindi accordingly. People usually like this drink in the summer months. Some other additives are added to the fresh juice like lemon,ginger, mint, and ice.

People also can find this drink along the roadsides in Tamil Nadu from mid March to the last of October. I have captured this sugarcane juice vendor using his sugarcane juice extraction machine in Chennai keep preparing fresh juice quickly on demand.
