For an Aam Aadmi the most khaas delicacy during the summer season is Mango.
Mango pickle, mango shake, mango juice, mango sundaes, mango rice, mango this and mango that.
I am a Deewana-e-aam (and Deewana-e-Khaas too!)..This is a category that can have mangoes every single day during the season. Aam-taur-par I prefer eating mangoes just in their pure natural form – no frills!
Langda, Lal-baug, Badaam, Dasheri, Payeri and the best in class Hapus…whatever and whenever I get, I don’t miss the chance.
Here are some tit-bits on man-goes …
As per Greek mythology, the food of Greek gods is Ambrosia. But why is it called ambrosia (key ingredient is Aam!)?
Well, Aam-banis too have plans to start mango exports to increase their aam-danis!
It is said that Armstrong use to have aams-tang before he went to take that giant leap for mankind!
Ambidextrous refers to people who can eat two mangoes at a time.
Aam-chi Mumbai loves Aamba…true ambassadors of aam and aam aadmi…
Ambush marketing uses aam…as well as bush…in mar-ke-ting!
Excess of Aam might land you in Ambulance….as mango amplifies the risk of sugar imbalance….
Let’s put an end to this ambiguous amalgamated aberration. It’s out of Aam-aadmi’s ambit.
Mango mania some other time. Some other season with some place. Ambala near Alabama.
