One last grain

Goverdhan Puja or Annakut as it is also known, is a Hindu festival in which devotees prepare and offer a large variety of vegetarian food to Bhagwan (God) Shri Krishna as a mark of gratitude. After the ceremony, the grains of rice are thrown to the devotees as alms, which they collect in their apparels. This image shows a lady desperate to collect every piece of grain she can.
