CHILDHOOD SUMMERS ARE ALL ABOUT PLAYING AND MANGOES, AND SOME MORE MANGOES!
“Obviously a King is a King, and a Mango is a Mango” , they said.
“What if the Mango is a King!” They said again!
Anyway, throughout history, Mango has been the King of fruits in India as well as the world. Through the ages, every sentient roaming under the cloak of humanity, has always been the die-hard fan of Mango (AAM, here). Mangoes have been the Gatorade for every kid for centuries. Here’s what a normal kid needs to qualify:-
The Inner Hunger
Classic ‘Multiplayer survivor in real life’
Surprised! What this generation of kids call thrill in the Battle Royale kinda Multiplayer survivor shooter games. They’d be surprised to know that back in the older days to even now for a few of us, Mango picking or “hunting” is a daring multiplayer tussle for a real person. The thrill of hitting the ripe ones with stones, even self-made slingshots, and that too in someone else’s territory is paramount.
Yeah, a bonus for all players, Mangoes have seen the entire “century” thing, maybe we don’t remember for how long. But the thing is, Mangoes have still been actively spotted on the trees. Although now, the fences might be a bit higher and electrified. This might still be a thrill for someone who’s seen the original hunt. No wonder when we might meet them..
The Mango as a fruit hasn’t just been a fruit all this time. Its benefits still have their own legacy, the raw ones are best suited for Pickles, even the companies know it! The ripe ones are eye candies for all of us, not just in India, but all round the world. Yeah, we export too!
With the last line, I’d request you to think about the journey of a Mango. Down from the tree. To your plate. Into your mouth. Down to your soul. Feeling the chills ?
