King of fruits!!


Yeah, it was another dinner table discussion!. We were discussing about food addiction  and I was a bit blanked out!  I had been a generalist food lover and could not immediately bring up any food which i crave for.

I was scratching my head to give the right answer when my turn comes up on the dinner table. As always, i was supported ably by the 7 year old’s clarification – “whichever you can keep on eating, then that is the food you like most”.  While this was a good input, i was again thinking…and i can hear the little one listing the favorites  –   “almonds, ………….juice, mangoes”.

i can easily pick up the three which i heard  –  almonds  – for that matter any nuts (something do with being nutty?!), juices and infact any fresh fruit juice and then……..mangoes….

Mangoes, the king of fruits……….i think that is it!!!………it has been inbuilt –  the love for mangoes……..i still remember the mango tree in our neighbours house –  my favorite abode during the summer holidays………….

so much of planning went into it……….I had to finish the morning chores on time  so that my parents allow me to step outside the house…….then get into neighbours house through our connecting backyard….patiently wait for the uncle to get off to office (better to avoid these uncles as there is a possibility of they updating appa about my mango mania!)…..intelligently convince aunty to let me climb on her well and rooftops……….then the actual climbing….. on the well and on the tin roof of their bathroom and then an agile jump on to the tree branch and the slow climb to the main trunk…… the V shape natural seat was the best place to sit and enjoy those raw crispy mangoes straight from the  branches…………..

YES, it is MANGO!
