As I was roaming the streets of Jodhpur, the blue city in Rajasthan, soaking in a myriad of impressions on the way , suddenly a golden girl appeared right in front of me at the doorstep. Around her, the remains of Holi, the festival of colors -which took place the day before- were still visible in pink. There she stood, frozen in time, piercing my lens.
Many a time in India, and especially when temperatures are soaring too high I would go for a fresh sugar cane juice rather than a processed coke to get a jolt of power through my collapsing body. Even though It was not until recently that I found out about the health benefits of sugar cane.
The 15% sugar content is in a raw unprocessed form and is considered as healthy as any other freshly pressed juice. The other 85% is water brimming with vitamins and minerals and is high in antioxidants and boosts the immune system.
It’s a meditation on its own to watch the large stalks slowly moving through the roller pressing machine, over and over again until the elixir is squeezed out and fully ready to run down my thirsty throat.
