Kanheri caves

! HAPPY 75th INDEPENDENCE DAY INDIA !

Between a rock and a hard place. The Kanheri caves.

The Kanheri Caves are a group of caves and rock-cut monuments cut into a massive basalt outcrop in the forests of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park, on the former island of Salsette in the western outskirts of Mumbai, India. They contain Buddhist sculptures and relief carvings, paintings and inscriptions, dating from the 1st century CE to the 10th century CE. Kanheri comes from the Sanskrit Krishnagiri, which means black mountain. Wikipedia.

No Parking

Two signs on a pole in the Bandra Kurla Complex. The 1st one says you can't park here and the 2nd one tells you where to park and at what cost. Smart advertising for a Pay and Park.

Areca nut

Bunch of Areca nuts on the Areca palm in Bandra east.

The areca nut is the seed of the areca palm, which grows in much of the tropical Pacific (Melanesia and Micronesia), Southeast and South Asia, and parts of east Africa. It is commonly referred to as betel nut. The term areca originated from the Malayalam word aṭaykka and dates back to the 16th century when Dutch and Portuguese sailors took the nut from Kerala to Europe. Areca nuts are chewed with betel leaf for their effects as a mild stimulant. Wikipedia

Sticky


Jackfruit with its seeds on the side. Jackfruit is sticky but yummy. The seeds are dried and used in curries.

The jackfruit is a species of tree in the fig, mulberry, and breadfruit family. Its origin is in the region between the Western Ghats of southern India, all of Sri Lanka and the rainforests of Malaysia. The jackfruit is the national fruit of Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, and the state fruit of the Indian states of Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Wikipedia.
