Photographer's Note

This image was captured at Sitabari near Baran, Rajasthan. You can see Colonies of Honey Bees here.
The method of collecting Shahad (honey) from non-farm area is different here.
Tehsil* wise contracts are assigned to bidders every year. Some Tehsils awards contract for around Rs. 5,000 while others may charge upto Rs. 1 Lac depending on the scope of the honey in that area.

Recently I came to know a method for checking purity of the Honey as original or not.

To check the purity, put one spoonful honey on a newspaper or normal paper. Put a burning matchstick just below the honey's wet area for some time. If the paper starts burning, it is not pure otherwise you are lucky to get pure honey.

* Tehsil: A district may have few Tehsil representing certain Administrative or Revenue area
$1 USD = 45 Rupees (appx.)
