It’s that time of the year again! The heat is at its oppressive high and that is exactly what the mangoes need to ripen and turn a bright yellow.
The farmers in interior Sindh believe in another week, the world’s heavenliest fruit will be ready to be transported to Karachi. ‘Desi’ mangoes are already on their way but the ‘Shaakhs’, i.e, Sindhri, Anwar Ratol and Chaunsa etc, are yet to ripen. The farmers will be working at breakneck speed next month to make sure they get the mangoes off the trees before they fall to the ground themselves.
Then which of the favours of your Lord will ye deny?
