Fresh Okra

The shopkeeper was so happy that I was taking pictures at his stall that he insisted that I photograph his stock of fresh okra as well. Okras are called 'ladies finger' in India. There are many Indian English names for common vegetables in India, like chillies for hot peppers, ladies finger for okra, brinjal for aubergine or eggplant etc. (Pune/ Poona, July 2007)
