The 'AAM' Season! :)

A few days back I came home after a hectic day at work to be greeted with a glass of Mango shake by mom. Scrumptious, I must say. I was elated and back to being my usual chirpy, gregarious self.

What's with me and Mango Shake's you may ask!

Actually, I just LOVE Mangoes. It’s the only fruit I have had a passionate relationship since years. :)
My love for mangoes has been so deep that no fruit could ever take its place. To be specific Alphonso's are the one's I prefer. None of the other mangoes can beat the taste, the class of an Alphonso. They are one of the best in terms of sweetness, richness and flavor. They surely are the king of the Mango brand. :)


Ironically, although I hate summers but I still love them for bringing the mango season along with them! As a kid, I loved summers. I think all kids did. Summers were the time when there was no work and only play. No studies, no homework, no books, no school. Summer time meant being pampered by mom. Kitchen being stocked up with chocolates, chips, sweets etc. Refrigerators being stocked with rasna, Ice-creams, Juices!
Life would turn into a Paradise. J

That time will not comeback. But let me comeback to the king of all fruits, the mango! You can enjoy your mango to the fullest when you eat it in an uncivilized way, the Indian way. Trust me, it tastes the best like that. In the indianised way of eating a mango you neither need a plate nor a fork. You just need to make a slit on the top of the mango and then suck the juices out until what remains is the seed! J


I was checking out some facts about mangoes when I came across these two facts. Really interesting.

The Mango tree plays a sacred role in India. It is a symbol of love and some believe that the Mango tree can grant wishes.

Mango leaves are used at weddings to ensure the couple bears plenty of children. J

I know a bit crazy but India is a place where people are living craziness each moment.

This summer eat as many mangoes as you can especially the alphonso’s. It's rightly said.......

                     "Mango among fruits, pork among meats, tea among leaves!"

So, in case you don't like mangoes you are loosing out on a flavor your taste buds would die to relish.

Me without U !

"Even though I knew it from the start,
that there is someone who owns your heart,
Even if I see you are not sitting next to me,
I am still hoping someday you will ! "- Anonymous

Love is felt differently by each one. Its an experience each time you fall for someone. Some love stories start and end happily ever after however some start and wait an entire lifetime to end. Some people are left to just experience an abbreviation of love!

The world calls it Unrequited Love. It's the love that is not reciprocated or understood as such even though reciprocation is usually desired.

I call it the Helpless Hapless Love (H2L) and the lovers the Helpless Hapless Lovers (H2L). They Love but they can't confess. They feel close to that special one but they still can't share things. They are miles apart yet close! There is a little difference between Unrequited love and H2L's. The later are the one's who haven't confessed their love yet!

H2L's are virtually ardent lovers. They might love someone deeply,care for them, keep record of their smallest move but they won't let them realize this! These feelings never get a chance to be displayed in their purest form. The Love, affection grows inside them and becomes stronger everyday!!!

Its more baffling than you can imagine. They can neither supress their love nor can they confess. They shouldn't stay in their sweethearts life and can't even vanish out of it. They genuinely feel for someone but they have to hide it under the pretext of friendship.They fear loosing the friend they already have for the love they can only dream of getting. Helpless Hapless Lovers are not cowards, they are lovers who even before stating their love know the consequences of their declaration.

At an early stage, a lot of H2L's try to extirpate their feelings but it shows no sign of being in their control. Rather it grows by leaps and bounds. And what you see after that is the purest form of LOVE. Selfless, non demanding Love. In their little ways they keep making a difference in their loved one's life. Without keeping expectations of any reciprocation they go on loving them unconditionally.

To conclude I would just say for the H2L's, continue loving without expectations and the one's receiving loads of this love enjoy the position. ;)

PS : Keep wondering which one of these am I. :P
