come summer, come neera

while travelling to pune by road (and in general travelling in maharashtra) during the summer, one will not fail to notice the thousands of नीरा केंद्र that magically appear on the roadsides.
नीरा is a wonderful summer thirst quencher on par with नारियल पानी and निम्बू पानी.
the palm tree, just like its coconut counterpart, is just awesome.

Yeah but I might prefer its fermented version (though once, long time ago, I swear it made me blind).

in all forms, neera rocks.
the fresh version during the day to keep the heat out and the fermented version at night to sleep well :-)
