Foraging is still the main food source for the inhabitants of Antaly. Far from the sea, the seasonal diet is mango, tamarind, wild potatoes, ashes, prickly peers, and cassava leaves and tubers. Rice is a luxury and meat a privilege. Sena doesn’t mind, he spends most of his day close to the kitchen eying the entrance for any food. By nightfall his empty belly wouldn’t let him sleep and he barges in crying for some more food – to a helpless mother.
