Nice pictures Smita. The close up of the flowers especially. They are
so small, you have taken pains to get it.
Regards

Very nice picture Smita ji. Seeing the fruits of Kaju I remembered my stay at Jagdalpur (Bastar). When I was posted there in my bungalow were growing 3 bit trees of Kaju full laden with fruits and I enjoyed eating the sweet ones.

Hi Neil,
The only time I tried it, I found it too harsh for me. Should try it again with advice from experts some time.
Regards
Yazdy.

Hi Yazdy,
   When you are next in Bombay be my guest. Meanwhile, you could try a large with a bottle of Limca. The only problem is.....should you get addicted I ain't responsible.
                         Regards,
                          Neil.
