There’s nothing quite as refreshing as a glass of sugar cane juice after a serious round of shopping under South India’s unrelenting sun on market day. This man has a small stall off the main road. When I pulled out my camera, his smiled widened, always a relief. Though we shared no common language, there was an immediate rapport.

Even for an inexpensive glass of sugar cane juice, there is a lot of competition. As with any business in the world, it’s all about location. Just being one stall in from the corner is a detriment.

Even the primitive machine that produces the sweet juice is photogenic and green.

They have been nothing but obliging and congenially to me, allowing my intrusive lens into their lives. I enjoy a glass of their juice and leave them, refreshed and smiling too.






About ninagrandiose

I am based in NYC but travel regularly to India and Mexico. Both of these countries feel like home. In India I scour the country in search of fabulous textiles to incorporate into my clothing designs. I sit back and let the ambiance and wonder of India seep into my consciousness so I can be inspired to write about what India is for me. I bring a limited number of people to India on exclusive and intimate tours of my favorite hangouts. In Mexico I take in the natural beauty that surrounds me and dance the night away. I constantly give thanks for all this and am pleased to share it all with you.
