Mangoes & Mythology

Mangoes & Mythology

Mangoes play such an integral part of our lives. Starting as a food source, to religion, politics, art, colonialism, economics, international relations! You name it! We got to visit Sujatha Gardens, an urban farm/orchard, on the outskirts of Hyderabad, while on our rural escape research trip in February. Even though it wasn't mango season just as yet Rupam and Shashi filled us with many lovely facts and folktales and even the funniest stories of their monkey menace. We hope you enjoy this episode of stories, facts and mythology. 

Do you have a special personal story about the mango you would like to share? DM us on twitter or Instagram, send us audio notes! or you can even email us at info@foodforward.in

Many thanks to our contributors:
