Definitely a parliament here. The wrinkly mangoes you mention, if they have a yellow skin, we get those here too, though they seem to call them Honeydew, and I agree they are the best for juicy sweetness

26 Apr 2019 9:42am

@grouser: Wow...Honey Dew..What a lovely name !! I just loved to eat those while we were in Delhi. Our son's friend would bring them from her home in Lucknow ( garden) when she came back to the hostel in Delhi

grouser from Ludlow, United Kingdom

Further to my comment above and your mention of Delhi one of my most powerful taste memories comes from a stall on Chadni Chowk which made the most heavenly Mango Milkshakes. Further to that I have just come back from Ludlow market with a box of six yellow mangoes :)

26 Apr 2019 11:50am

@grouser: Aw!!! Don't talk to me about mango milk shakes grouser..a banned item for me now :)) I also loved eating in Gujarati Restaurants where they used to serve Mango9 juice extract( thick pulpy one ) with parathas dripping with ghee!! SLURP......

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

I always thought that was a funny name for a group of crows, although sometimes when they get loud behind our house early in the morning, I think of murder.

26 Apr 2019 7:17pm

@B. Thomas: B Ha ha ha On some days, our Parliament also presents a similar picture..One wonders whether politicians are humans with soft voices or crows !!

From colourful fruits to the story of crows. A fine contrast. Looks like this will be really interesting. Thank you Devi. :)

In our ancient culture, crow is a sign for good news, but it changes in recent centuries...
