Fresh Olives Sketch

Kindly click on the image for a bigger view

While roaming around yesterday near the jetty in Guwahati, I noticed few street vendors selling fresh olives. Now these brings back my childhood memories when we used to climb the olive trees to pluck them fresh off the branches. We used to shake the branches for the ones not reachable by hand and there would be a shower of riped olives !! Here olive is a popular fruit to pickle in a very traditional age old way. Btw, olive oil in our cooking is only a recent addition!!
