Update (March 29, 2007):

Annulla, here's a pic of a banana tree, complete with some bananas!

I took this photo on the road in Wyanad, Kerala in December 2004. The leaves are somewhat dry on these trees. When the plants are younger, they are a lovely shade of bright green. Banana leaves are traditonally used to serve food (instead of plates) at weddings and other funtions. They are also used to pack take out food in some restaurants, although, sadly, more and more restaurants are moving to syrofoam and plastic containers for packing food.

Lorry with banana leaves it is! I took this photo from my car a long time back here in Bangalore. We were on the road to Trichy and back this weekend and saw, on the outskirts of Trichy, lorries being loaded up with raw bananas and banana leaves which reminded me about this photo.

Thanks for playing. :) Next photo quiz coming up!

hmm. methinks it's a humongous Paan made for a quite-sated dinosaur post lunch. :P

Sujatha said...

Prashanth, quite possible. Who knows what happens when the lorry is parked on a quiet highway in the dead of the night, eh?
