Mangoes from home.

Powerful smell of ripe mangoes in the whole room as I feed Parle-G biscuits and killed mosquitoes as bait to the ant army in my room to keep them away from the Kesar mangoes high in a box over the cupboard, mangoes that travelled from Saurashtra to Maharashtra so that I could eat them like a lunatic three to four times everyday.
