The "chikoo" or "suppota" is a brown, baseball-sized fruit with an inedible skin. The insides are soft and light tan when fully ripe, with large, black seeds shaped like tear drops. The fleshy innards taste sugar sweet and almost melt as they hit your tongue. This is what you see on the step there, our meagre effort at collecting these fruit.
The other item of note -- the two sticks and the tablecloth attached to it -- is a contraption I fashioned so that my mother could catch the fruit as I knocked them out of the tree. It worked as long as she kept her eyes on what was going on in the branches above. I was trying to pluck these chikoos with the help of a long bamboo pole with a small blade on the end of it. Unfortunately, this blade was as dull as dull could possibly be, resulting in the chikoos being "knocked" off of their branches while my mother frantically tried to catch them, or at least gently break their fall. It was fun. :)
