Winter Time is Guava Time in Mhow

With winter come hand-carts laden with guavas - a fruit which grows well locally. Called amrood in Hindi,  it is called jaam in  the local Malwi dialect of Hindi. Interestingly the fruit is supposed to be 'cold' hence unsuitable for the cold weather.

 Q: "How do you know winter has started if you live in an area where it does not snow?"
     A: "When the coconut oil freezes and your knuckles pain due to the cold when you drive a two-wheeler."
