Rhymes With Orange

I love oranges. That said there is so much to feel sorry for this seasonal fruit. Its name and colour are the same and the lonely thing doesn’t even have a word to rhyme with. However: “Plants are more courageous than almost all human beings: an orange tree would rather die than produce lemons, whereas…

Colors Of Winters

In winters, you get to savor some amazing fruits like grapes and strawberries. Once on a platter, the lively colors make you want to eat them all without pausing!

Detox Your Mind!

OK, after having bombarded you with posts about sweets and pastries, time to detox your system with some fresh fruits. Yes I finally managed to lay my hands of the first set of grapes for the season. And they look delicious, don’t you thing?

Goodness on a Plate

Not all the food you get on the beach is unhealthy. On our last stroll along the backwaters, we saw several stalls of cut fruit plates. So if you are avoiding the beach so that you don’t snack unhealthy, then you can go back there again without fear!

More Memories to Savour

As the seasons change, memories fleet past as flashes. On let another stroll on the beach, another stall full off goodies was waiting to greet us. The stall has boiled chestnuts (I prefer them raw),  star fruits, ber, tamarind, raw mangoes and heaps of fresh Aniseed. How I miss my blissfully ignorant school days!

Apples for a Week!

If an apple a day keeps a doctor away, I guess I am all sorted for four days in a row now. So I guess,  I can survive for half a week without any illnesses… hopefully!

As Sweet As a Pomegranate

I love pomegranates, and considering that I am struggling with an acute stomach infection it is helping me quite well too. While peeling it fun, you can never have enough of it to eat anyway…

Pined Delicacy!

I love pineapples, despite having a sensitive throat. It’s probably one of those fruits that look prettier…

More Fruity Fun!

Being an agricultural nation with three distinct climates, there are certain kinds of fruits that grow at specific times of the years.

Healthy, Wealthy and Wise!

One of the best things about going to a market on a Saturday afternoon is that there are no crowds, plus the markets are neatly set up anticipating crowds that will follow. This is one of the many shots that I managed to capture last weekend.

Reminiscing Old Times

When we were growing up, there used to be a berwala right outside the school bus stop. We would buy an assortment of tangy eatables from him like ber (Indian plums of varied types), imili (raw and ready tamarind), fresh Saunf  (fennel seeds and flowers), kairis (raw mangoes) and star fruits. This one that I…

As Tough As A Coconut!

As a South Indian, and having my roots set across coastal India, the ocean, rice and coconuts are an integral part of my life and cultural roots. I got this shot with the permission of a very kind coconut water vendor who seemed rather interested in a Saturday mid-afternoon nap than shoo me off. Needless…
