  2. Beautiful narration to go with the amazing pictures you clicked. Rethy, it was a treat reading your write up ….a flash back to childhood days spent with grandparents and cousins …the carefree days where climbing trees was second nature….biting into the fleshy juicy ripe mangoes. And watching granny cutting the raw mangoes with tender care and tongue salivating when the spices blend in so perfectly, producing an aroma like no other. Thank you Rethy, your pictures and writings always seems to unearth the memories from the subconscious,

  3. Ah! the memories mangoes bring! right from the fragrance of mango blossoms wafting in by December to the tender ones on your yard..the sour raw ones we as kids loved to have with chilly powder and salt..and the scent of ripe mangoes by school closing time! You are right about childhood memories mixing all kind of unlikely things together..to me it is the scent of ripe mangoes in machu and vadakke ara and the bhagavata saptaha held in the temple in Medam. And lately my father’s fondness for mangoes..as you know here in Chennai (and I suspect most of India) the mango season starts a little later than it does in Kerala. We would be the ones to start buying when the season starts but once they started coming, he’d insist on having them every day until the season’s last disappeared from the market..he was so fond of mangoes! And the variety we have in Kerala! Wonderful post Rethy..thanks for reviving the memories

    • Thanks a lot Uma… you have always given me the dhairyam to attempt this 🙂 Miss those carefree days…the simple joys of childhood, the fathomless love of our fathers. Glad that we’re the children of the those times and we still carry a bit of that childhood even now. Thank you
