And then God created …

God created this and

God created that

and then;

Ever so deliciously

Lovingly

He created mangoes πŸ₯­ ❀️

And I thank Him

From the core of my heart ❣

God created luscious strawberries and cherries, and He created apples and oranges and grapes and so many fruits with all His love; and I, the fruitarian that I am, love them all. But mango remains the kings of fruits. How can one not love God and believe in Him after eating a mango β€οΈπŸ˜‚β€οΈ

I love fruits πŸ‡ πŸ‰ 🍈 and I can live on fruits alone. And all fruits remind me of God. How randomly and thoughtlessly we peel an orange and eat it. Have you ever wondered at the beauty and the intricacy of its design? From where does this intelligence comes? God alone.

Oh yes, He is visibly and undeniably present even in a shrub of grass and a wild flower. But He is so deliciously present in mangoes, the fruit of my heart πŸ’•

And we are so lucky in India to have a huge variety of mangoes. The season begins with ‘Badami’ and mangoes from South. Then the so very delicious – Alphonso from Maharashtra. It is our favourite in April and May. And then come monsoon and ‘Langda’ and ‘Dussehri’ from North; followed by the so very sweet ‘Chausa’ !! And so many others in between. I love them all. But if I were to pick favourites : it would be Alphonso and Langda 😊πŸ₯­

And come September

They start to vanish

From the shelves

And that breaks my heart πŸ’”

Nothing lasts….not even mangoes… (I was so lucky in December and January- could eat mangoes in Guatemala and Brisbane 😊❀️πŸ₯­)

Which is your favourite fruit?

  1. You are so sweet Saba just like a ripe mango. I love pilpela mangoes πŸ₯­ πŸ₯­πŸ₯­God bless you and give you a joyous and fulfilling life

  2. Yes, It’s choosne wala aam. Pilpela is a condition of a mango. We make it flabby by pressing fingers and thumb, you may also enjoy langda like that. πŸ˜‹πŸ₯­πŸ₯­
    Sindhuree is named after province Sindh.

    If you mean choosne wala aam by Pilpela; I love these but don’t get much in Western India.

    A joke:
    A man asks mango vendor, is this langda?
    Vendor replies, certainly yes, that’s why it is on wheel barrow.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    (The lutf of humour is only in native language)πŸ˜€
    What about eating flabby (pelpila) mango?
    Do you do justice with goothly?πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

  7. I love πŸ’• mangoes πŸ₯­ 😊. And it’s so true that we often don’t think of the wonder we are holding, peeling and eating. It’s amazing!

  8. Oh yes πŸ˜‚ the more I thank Him the more He gives me to be thankful for 😊
    You know I decided in 1999 to be happy always and this decision changed my life πŸ˜ŠπŸ™

  9. My grand daughter often asks me why do I close my eyes while eating. And I tell her it is to keep thanking Him 😊

  10. You got me giggling. I love mangoes too, but I’ve not really thought about God while eating a mango. This is a wake up call for me. Time to appreciate God for everything I eat and everything in nature.

  11. Awesome and applaud your faith in the Almighty and keep up the spirit and a nice time to visit Ratnagiri for the famous Mango πŸ₯­
