Soliga tribesman harvesting amla (Phyllanthus emblica) fruits in the Biligirirangan Hills (BR) of Karnataka, India. The astringent fruits, known as Indian gooseberry in English, are eaten raw, dried, or cooked, and used in shampoos, hair oils, inks, as a mordant for fixing dyes, and in a variety of different Ayurvedic medicinal preparations. [NOTE: Amla fruits taste a bit medicinal, and they are frequently soaked in salt water and tumeric to make them more palatable].
