Today at morning as I woke up I saw my grandfather come with a man.
ma He was a coconut tree climber.
In our region coconuts are very important. Almost all homes had
coconut trees and in all our food preparations coconut does a major part.
Eating a tender coconut was very delicious and different from eating ordinary coconut. The coconut trees are always very
tall so we can’t pluck the coconuts just with our hands. Usually there are many people who take
climbing these trees as their work. Often such people ask high wages too. Really this is a very
dangerous as well as a risky work. One such man was this one.
He climbed up the tree and put them on to the ground. “Thud” the coconut fall down with a loud
sound. Any way coconuts won’t break because it has a thick spongy coating outside
protects it. After a while the man came down. Then I and my
young sister piled the coconuts up
and our mother packed them into the sacks for storing. All this work was very interesting and
exiting. After this excitement some thing very special awaited us
at the end. All to gather we got
four sacks full of lovely coconuts.
