An unusual sight

We recently saw a sight in our building, which is common in Kerala, but rather unusual for this city. Shankar was the first to spot the man atop our coconut tree, and suggested that it was a good opportunity for some photos.... So here they are...... shots of a guy at ease atop a coconut tree, and his descent... without any aids except his hands and feet............

  1. :)Oh i am always amazed watching them climb the tree with their bare hands and just that rope around their legs... amazing!!

    one guy comes home once every couple of mths to pull out all coconuts!! :)

  2. Quite unusual in Mumbai! And did you notice, he did give you a look.

    About your query on my post Peacocks [Mor, मोर] of Morachi Chincholi [मोराची चिंचोली], I suggest the best place to stay is Pune only. It's just 50 kms. by road from Pune.

  6. @ Aaarti: well, they do come by once in a while.... but they are difficult to get hold of them, esp since there are so few..... and in any case, our colony is more like a village amidst this busy city.....
