  • MANGO!! The word itself is a story maker, it's a key to a treasure trove full of unbelievably exciting narrations.

    6 days before, I was with my Grandparents (motherside). Generators were switched on and electricity was being generated, all the other family members were busy with their daily chores. There was a wedding function at night, same day. Afternoons are always hot and enervating and then MANGO's were bought into discussion.

    This is what I was told:
    "Sophisticaiotn, dining tables and chairs have killed our fun times with mangoes. In past people used to get together for mangoes, they all used to sit in a circle on the floor and a bucket filled with mangoes dipped in chilled water was placed in between. No knifes, no forks, just plain hands and a tight squeeze and the plup oozes out from the top. The person who has got the sweetest mango used to pass it on to others to taste the fruit. Most of the time, the mango could not complete the circle, it got over. The lender busy with other mangoes totally forget they have one fruit in credit."

    This whole episode used to start an end within minutes. Joint family system is so much fun. Next get together would be dinner time. More mangoes maybe.
