The groundnut called also peanut (Arachis hypogaea)is a species of bean probably native of Paraguay. China leads in production of peanuts, 41.5% of overall world production, followed by India (18.2%) and the US(6.8%). Indian cuisine uses roasted, crushed peanuts to give a crunchy body to salads; peanuts oil is used as cooking oil. Here the guy is roasting the peanuts and the girl is sorting them in the bus stand of Bhaktapur. Source : wiki

My last green smile is for you.
It's very interesting to see people process the peanuts. They seem like working very hard. It let me thinking, we just eat peanuts or peanut butter. But never cared where they came from. People somewhere work hard to provide food for us. We should appreciate it.

nice the view of the daily life of these workers with the peanuts to are spread all over the ground.I like the light and the colour management as the good reportage shot from the place.

Fantastic capture of the peanuts in mid-air, Miguel! Depending on whether this is a large file or not, it may be fun to try to crop more tightly on this woman. I have experimented with a WS but did not have enough resolution to present a satisfactory image.

Fine candid view of the peanut roasting and sorting operation with real humans, instead of machines.
I am a big eater of all types of nuts. My favorite but expensive one are Macadamias.

Excellent view down to street peanuts sellers, so typical not only for Nepal but also for India, Bangladesh and Pakistan. Toy got it from perfect high angle viewpoint. I like how you managed to freeze the woman motion. Well done.

Good capture and perfect timing. While they are busy earning a living, you were also busy documenting it :-)

Very interesting shot of the people working at the side of the street sorting the peanuts. Good timing with the woman tossing the nuts in the air as she sorts them. Very good quality light,sharpness and lovely colour in the shot. Great record of everyday life in Bhaktapur.

I love that you timed this shot so perfectly that we can see the nuts in mid air as the woman sorts them! Its easy for me sometimes to overlook the importance of this food in the world, as I don’t really eat them. Thanks for your useful note too, as always a great addition to you photo.
All the best

Una escena fantastica de la vida cotidiana en el pais, aqui podemos observar una escena muy vividamente, la chica con esa especie de cedazo clasificando las cacahuetes, mientras el chico realiza alguna otra labor.
Bien gestionada tanto la luminosidad, como la nitidez.
Que tengas un buen dia.
Todo lo mejor para ti.

interesting. I've never seen before how peanuts are processed or being prepared for consumption.
A very interesting photo and an equally interesting report!
