A group of village's elderlies gather to delight themselves in chewing a quid of betel.
A betel chew is made up of several ingredients: betel leaf, slivers of the arena palm nut, and a lime paste. The pieces of nut covered with lime paste are wrapped in a leaf, making a tiny package that fits neatly into the cheek pouch. The quid, as the entire package is called, contains a mild stimulant and an anesthetic that relieves toothaches while simultaneously suppressing the appetite.
