Mentioned in Live Mint on the Fruit and Vegetable Festivals of India

A farm of happiness - mentioned on Mint Travel Lounge

Yours truly was mentioned last Saturday on the Mint Travel Lounge supplement of the Hindustan Times Newspaper in an article called ‘A Farm of Happiness’.

We Indians love our festivals and we have so many of them. Yet, each one holds a special place in our hearts. This article on Mint Travel Lounge written by Deepika Gumaste talks about the traditional fruit and vegetable festivals of India, which are not only unique and colorful, but they find a way to appeal to our palates and that is what makes them so very special. From the Konkan fruit fest in April to the International Mango Festival in Delhi and from the Kadalekai Parishe festival in Bangalore to the tea festival of Assam in November, there are so many names that will boggle and amaze your mind. May be, the next time, you should time your holidays with these festivals so that you can experience these special fruit and vegetable festivals of India. A perfect recipe for healthy travel!

A big round of applause for the writer Deepika Gumaste who has not only brought these amazing fruit and vegetable festivals to us, but also for thinking about boosting our agricultural economies, especially at the root levels and through fresh organic produce.
