Fruit seller

“Never haggle with street vendors. They do business to run their family. Their sole purpose is to survive with dignity and respect. They prefer to go to bed without food rather than living a life of dishonesty” Lourdes Alexander

Roadside Fruit sellers

In India, it’s a common sight to come across fruit sellers, on either side of the major roads.

Always I admire the fruit seller selling a variety of fruits arranged neatly in an order, so colourful and eye-catching!.

The fruits look fresh, shining and mouthwatering.

But their life is not all that colourful

I also wonder how they manage to survive if there are no buyers, since fruits are perishable, causing financial loss to the seller.

They keep these items in a pushcart on the side of the road/pavement and patiently wait for the buyer to approach.

Another problem they face is competition among themselves since most of them have their cart next to each other and attracting a customer is a herculean task and the competition is stiff.

Who is harassing whom?

On top of this, the worst thing that happens to them is the bargaining tactic of the customer.

I feel the customer harass them and move on to the next seller if their bargain is not fruitful!

The irony is the same customer talks of how the sellers are greedy and fleece them left, right and centre, initially quoting a very high price for the fruits and later bringing down the prices as if they are helplessly selling at a loss.

Who is telling the truth? 

I don’t know. I am as confused as you are!

But I can tell that they are the ones belonging to the lowest income bracket, without education and struggling to survive daily.

There is news that some of them are taxpayers!

Chat, Pan Sellers, Fruit vendors are millionaires in this UP city!! IT officers shocked!

May be there is a way to make money and not all are successful.

Thank you for visiting my site and taking your time to read.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Flamboyant Fruit

We often neglect our body health and avoid eating natural food and suddenly realize that we are overweight. Is any remedy available?
Yes, there is one, if only you follow what Dolly Parton says! ( Of course you must first know  the source of books😀😀)

“I tried every diet in the book. I tried some that were not in the book. I tried eating the book, It tasted better than most of the diets” Dolly Parton

This image is that of the fruit from the tropical African tree known by the name Kigelia.

Its fruit is long and sausage-shaped hence the name.

The fruits can be over 2 feet (61 cms) and can weigh 20-30 pounds ( 9-13 Kgs) and you, better be careful while walking underneath these trees lest you get a head injury by the falling fruit.

Taste

The fruit tastes bitter and poisonous when eaten raw and must be cooked to remove the poison.

Why some fruits are poisonous and some not? What does it teach us?

“Do not rush to judge someone unless his/her fruits reveal the truth. However, don’t forget; mostly, it’s not the fault of the tree to produce bitter fruits. Sometimes, the soil determines that; blame the source! Deal with the soil! Don’t deal with the tree! Other trees are there that the same soil can influence! Don’t deal with your enemy, deal with the Satan that sponsors them!”   Israelmore Ayivor

Uses

The fruit is inedible but is an ingredient..in the common traditional beer(Muratina/Kaluvu).Wow!

The fruit is said to be purgative.

It’s used in many skincare products

Monkeys and elephants love this fruit. source-foodreference.com

Flowers

They are green to brownish and bell-shaped.

Thank you.

Namaste🙏🙏🙏
