Grapes of ….

….wrath? Hardly, I’d say. More like a bountiful harvest this year, it appears. Hmmm, like year on year? On the roads, you will see heaps and heaps of this fruit laden on push-carts and prices enquired by eager customers. However, with rates in the range of +Rs.40 a kg, these gentlemen sellers, unhappy with low sales & offtake, think that consumers are being sour grapes. I think their wining…er, whining should gradually fade as prices drop. Still, these luscious, sweet and seedless beauties are worth buying and is a family favourite with many.

I believe that there is also a Drakshi Mela that is held every year at the HOPCOMS centre at Hudsons Circle. I’d love to report it over here should the event be upcoming. Anybody?
