wildhoney...its sale

I enjoy  morning  road run  and  usually every morning  I run about  seven  to eight kilo meters on road by watching  the  happenings around. In  winter it is  common that  the  wild honey collectors  bring  their collected  honey  to market place in morning hours. The honey they sell is very cheap , not more than 150 per kilogram.


Once , I have  got an opportunity  to see  their technique  of collecting  wild honey from a tall tree. First they  made a  torch  with rugs  so that  will not produce flame  but smoke only. Then  they  put it below the  honey beehive , due to smoke  bees  escaped from  hive , they cut the hive and brought it down.
