Mango Festival
Saturday, June-17-2017

By: Iqra Junejo

Mango “The national Fruit of Pakistan” and off-course “King of all the fruits” has arrived in markets of the Pakistan since May 2017. But, unfortunately prices of Mangoes are still very high in many retails markets, and this hike has kept mangoes far away from the access of people having limited financial resources, though this fruit is liked by masses regardless of their ages.

Mango lovers wait for a whole year to enjoy this unique gift of nature which comes in the markets in summers. This probably is one of the few fruits which can be consumed in raw form as well. Besides this, Mangoes have always performed diplomatic duties between India and Pakistan. Pakistan has always sent its tremendous quality mangoes to the world largest mango producing country (India) as diplomatic approach, well known as “Mango Diplomacy.” Exchange of Mangoes as token of love and respect isn’t limited to two neighboring countries only but it takes place everywhere, within the country, family, company, friends and the list goes on and on. Mango Diplomacy in every case has always won the hearts of people.
