Mango in bloom.
Soon the hot winds shall blow, the day time temperature shall reach around 42 – 44C; there shall be power cuts and blackouts. The unquenchable thirst shall kill all desire for food. CK pondered gloomily on all the field work still pending in the orchards.
A few months later, after a lunch of luscious ripe mangoes CK snoozed on the bamboo framed string cot in the mango orchard and dreamt of the hoors in the garden of delight.
The jinn that lived on the sole ficus tree grinned and signaled to his friends …… a troop of monkeys descended on the mango trees.
