Tender coconut water is the most healthy and delicious summer drink in India. It is easily found on most urban streets of India. I can't resist this nutritious, natural drink on a sultry afternoon. I am particularly fond of watching the vendor lop off the husk with his machete with superb dexterity. After I am done sipping the sweet water, I insist on getting the empty shell hacked and the soft meat scooping off. As I relish the soft, tasty meat using a spoon carved out of the coconut shell, the spent 10 rupees seems a perfect investment.:)......Apart from the quenching of thirst and brutal heat, another precious aspect of enjoying a tender coconut on a dusty, busy street or a shady, desolate place is the "sweet memories made".
