Sweet Tamarind

Yesterday, I was standing at a juice centre after ordering ‘Orange Lime’. Accidently my eyes fell on a small packet (250g) of sweet tamarind. Out of curiosity I searched for MRP and it was 120 INR. Wow!!! 120 INR for a 250g packet of sweet tamarind!!! My memories quickly went back to childhood; there was a big sweet tamarind tree in our back yard, close to road. In its season, there used to be huge number of sweet tamarinds on it. We, and all those who walked close to tree threw stones at it and had sweet tamarinds. Fast forward to 2016 and I am seeing the same thing for 120 INR.

“Orange Lime”. I woke up from my dream and had orange lime.
