Daal Arhar Ki, Khatai Aam Ki, Toley Bhar Ghee, Rasoi Raam Ki.
This poem reflects the beauty of Indian summers that can be witnessed in every household. We can however carry on without dal and ghee, but mango? That doesn’t seem possible. It’s been ages that mangoes are delighting our senses with their colour, flavour, and fragrance. To be approximate, our country is cultivating this not-so-aam fruit for over 5 millenia while the western countries are enjoying them since last 400-500 years only. India shares a unique connection with mangoes – religiously, spiritually, medicinally, historically, and in every other form you know.
So, why is this juicy and pick-me-up fruit named mango? There has to be some story, right? Of course, there is. To begin with, it started with amra-phal. The mention of it can be found in the Puranas and the Upanishads. However, when it reached southern India, amra-phal got translated by Tamilians to aam-kay. Eventually, aam-kay got converted to maam-kaay as people pronounced it differently. And then came Malayalis into the picture who turned it maan-gay. And so we got mango. That has been a lovely journey, indeed. We know William Shakespeare had said, ‘what’s in a name?’ But there’s always a curiosity to know, isn’t it?
When just the name of mango brings in so much fun and fascination, what can other aspects of this ‘king of fruits’ bring in. That’s right – limitless. Therefore, SaleBhai is here to surprise you and enlighten you with amazing details about aam in our section ‘#Aambaat’ After all, we value our nation and always have the desire to spread knowledge about our country’s gems.
Did you know different regions of India cultivate different mango varieties, each offering distinctively amazing taste? Yes, correct. For instance, some are best when eaten raw while others taste divine when ripe. Some of the varieties include – sudha ras, safeda, johari, langda, rasna vilas, totapuri, amrapali, dasheri, chausa, pukhraj, and the list goes on. We seriously don’t think any other fruit has as many varieties.
Among all the good, better, and best features of mango, there is one not-so-good thing about it too. It is that we are showered with these delights only during summers and rest of the year, have to struggle finding its alternatives. On a positive note, no matter how long the wait is, the result is sweet, yummy, and totally worth it.
Mango has been praised since ancient times and it goes on to date. For instance, Amir Khusrau, a famous Persian poet, named it – Naghza Tarin Mewa Hindustan. It means the fairest Indian fruit. We say, it’s not just a name but a prize that this fruit truly deserves for being the best in every term – be it taste, variety, use, colour, and juiciness.
