For green mangoes...and more...

A few days back, I along with the family went on a trip to Lavasa.

 Since the onset of monsoon was yet to happen, apart from the lush greenery on the way, there was not much to cheer about the trip or the place.
It was kind of getting boring, seeing the un-finished construction on top of mountains, besides being sad. Everything was quite dull, and then everything became very exciting too...
I have not eaten a single mango this season, like since so many years. I guess my fondness for mangoes is there till the time I see them in a colour of green on the tree, besides that if the mango is available in any colour, I lose my appetite for them.
So while returning, somewhere near the Mutha village, we saw a lot of mango orchards, and the trees were still laden with raw green mangoes. And suddenly the mangoism inside me erupted and I wanted to do which I have not done in last 17 odd years...

In last 10.5 years, I have sold Yellow Pages,Chemicals and hybrid seeds, Washing machines and refrigerators, Mobile phones, Operator sim-cards,Plasma and LCD TV,Memory cards,Projectors and Cameras...

Toh zinda ho tum !!!

Dilon mein tum apni betabiyan leke chal rahe ho, Toh zinda ho tum! Nazar mein khwaabon ki bijliyan leke chal rahe ho, Toh zinda ho tum!
Hawa ke jhonkon ke jaise aazad rehna seekho; Tum ek dariya ke jaise, leharon mein behna seekho; Har ek lamhe se tum milo khole apni baahein; Har ek pal ek naya samaa dekhein ye nigaahein.
Jo apni aankhon mein hairaniyan leke chal rahe ho, Toh zinda ho tum! Dilon mein tum apni betabiyan leke chal rahe ho, Toh zinda ho tum!
