It was happiness. We fought together some severe pest attack and survived.
This little budded tree on my balcony gave a real tasty naadan (local small variety) mango.
Enjoyed, just like in the traditional way. First tasted the remains left on the andy (seed). Then had the two thin ones called palaka pool (plank pooled portion) and finally the best parts the metthha pools (the thick bigger cuts). Bliss.
What if I grow a new one from the seed.

THE DAY WHEN I FELT RICH!
Imagine getting ₹300 all for oneself, some 55 years back. That’s what I got for coming 2nd in Shot Put in Kerala School’s Games, competing without any practice or training.
To spend that much money, when paise 25 was getting three idlies, one big steamed Kerala Banana and a glass of tea. Lots of friends were required to enjoy the booty.
There started my love affair with shot put which lasted till I passed out from University.
Now the affair is restored and I won a gold in shot put today in Kerala State Masters Games in Kollam.
That’s thanks to Masters Games where local, national and international meets are held for age groups.
I am in it for swimming for the past three years. Participation is quite satisfying and medals sweet rewards.
Here are three golds and a silver in yesterday’s swimming competition.
And then, I was an athlete and Masters Athletics is taking place on December 11 and 12 and I am registered for that too.
You don’t have to retire from sports.
Proud to be part of a Champion Team. Happy to contribute with four gold and two silver medals in the Kerala State Swimming Championship in my age group.
Humbled by the achievement.
The sunset leaves a mark practically everyday over the backwaters. And it knows to give something special for Diwali.
Across the water, the Vice Admiral’s residence is lit for the festival. But nothing can match what nature can give.
It’s not IPhone 13 Pro, it’s just the 11 that I have. It had the small circle that came up after the click to rotate once clockwise and then anti, to optimise this picture. Other than that, no photo shop, no editing and ain’t it stunningly beautiful?
മാവു പൂത്തല്ലോ, ഞ്ഞാവൽ കാ പഴുത്തല്ലോ, ഇന്നും കാലമായില്ലേ, ഏൻടെ കൈ പിടിച്ചീടാൻ.
My little mango tree in grow bag is flowering.
It’s a unique dwarf variety, budded which means two varieties of mangoes in one tree.
I know it’s the early flush and usually taken out so that tree matures.
Perhaps I will leave it to the plant to decide.
Super excited to see the flowering buds.
Hence the relevant lines from my all time favourite Malayalam song ☺️ (പാട്ടിൽ കാടിനു പകരം മാവാക്കി)
THE GROW BAG REVOLUTION
Grow bags are ready virgin earth on terraces and balconies of houses.
Scary stories about the pesticides and poison that could be in the vegetables and fruits we buy, have influenced a keen interest in these bags, which can help us grow our own vegetables and fruits.
Apparently, this Onam, Malayalees produced more vegetables and fruits at home, than anytime before. The dependency on suspect produce was greatly reduced.
With the acquisition of 16 grow bags, I have just joined in the noble action of producing safe food.
