It is around peak summer and the heat is intense and scorching. We would have been tired from work and also from the blast of the sun. But of these change once when we have a bite of mango. Despite the odds, we merrily enjoy the fruit and relish it. That time would be completely different for us.
I personally like this delicacy and this fruit would send me to cloud nine just by seeing it. My mind eats the fruit way before my mouth does. I would wait all winter long just to eat this in summer. Just thinking about this situation makes our mouths drool. Also, children around summer would take stones and hit on the mango tree in other’s garden; take the fruit and run away. The present generation may not be aware of this a lot.
