To storm out of the house and head to a market...
And you come back with:
250 gms of jamun
250gms of fanas( ripe jackfriut)
1 big halwa
1kg mutton chops
I missed buying the rajnigandhas, the honey straight from the honeycomb, and some more jamun.
This was a couple of sundays back. And ofcourse now i barely remember why I had stormed out.
As I attempt to distract myself from work, I think of the market lolling around in the humid heat with more wares to bring more good cheer.
-The last of the alphonso mangoes as the luscious langda will take over and erase all memory of the alhonso.
-The last of the really fresh water bearing vegetables- gourd(all types-ridged, smooth), kakdi, teende
-And the gulmohar trees frantically shedding their leaves to ready themselves for a less riotious look
There is a reason that water melon did not figure to high on my list this year. And the reason is the sunday film watching club that a few of us are a part of. But thats another post.
